When they mess up, they're always "former Yankees"

Ted Lilly pitched for 15 years, most of the time in the National League. He pitched four years for the Dodgers and four for the Cubs. He twice made the All-Star team. He pitched less than three years for the Yankees - including his rookie year (a full 8 innings, he threw), and midway through his final Yankee year, he was traded to Oakland. In other words, as a Yankee, he was a blip...

Is Yoan Moncada the Future of the New York Yankees?

Could the 19-year-old Moncada go from Cuban defector to the face of the New York Yankees? (Mandatory Credit: Jesse Sanchez) When Robinson Cano spurned the New York Yankees and signed with the Seattle Mariners, the team was left without a face and future of the franchise. Derek Jeter’s career was nearing the end, A-Rod is too old and troubled and Mariano Rivera rode off into the...

Jeter was the final player to retire from the remarkable teams in the 1990’s and early 2000’s, which left mainly millennial Yankee fans, but also the whole Yankee fan base feeling a...

A-Rod thinks Yankees third base job is his to lose

Despite the Yankees signing Chase Headley to a four-year, $52 million contract this winter, Alex Rodriguez thinks the club’s starting third base job is his to lose. Yep – the 39-year old who didn’t play at all in 2014 and hasn’t played 100 games in the field since 2010 is assuming that he’s going into Spring Training with a starting role at the hot corner.

Even without Jeter, ESPN still loves Yankees for Sunday night

It doesn’t matter that the Yankees went 84-78 in 2014 and that the beloved Derek Jeter has retired, negating those stories of seeing No. 2 for the last time. ESPN still loves the Yankees judging by the early slate of Sunday night games. The opener on April 5 features St. Louis at the Cubs. Might I suggest Dan Shulman and John Kruk do the game from the Wrigley Field bleachers? What...

Why WS Rings Shouldn’t Matter In Hall of Fame Discussion

When trying to decide who belongs in the Hall of Fame, one thing that always comes up is the player’s postseason record and number of rings. Lately, I’ve heard the argument that Rivera is a first ballot Hall of Famer (which I pretty much agree upon), but Trevor Hoffman isn’t Hall worthy because Rivera was a better postseason player. Also, being from Detroit, when I say Whitaker...

Comment on Would Derek Jeter be Legendary in Another Uniform? by Fletch F. Fletch

I know i’m commenting on an older post here but would the Orioles have drafted Jeter with a HoF SS already in the majors? It turns out the Ripken did make the move to 3B in ’97 and if Ripken made the switch to 3B and Jeter was delayed going into the majors until ’97 would he have been a free agent in ’03? One year before Tejada hit the market? The Yankees would still have...

Derek Jeter Fan Finally Got A RE2PECT Leg Tattoo

  It’s January 2015. Derek Jeter’s Gatorade grand farewell Gatorade commercial came out like six months ago and Drew is just getting around to getting his “RE2PECT” leg tattoo.

Alan Trammell: The Forgotten Candidate

The amazing thing about the 1984 Detroit Tigers, other than being one of the most dominant start-to-finish teams in MLB history after starting 35-5, is that nobody on that squad is a Hall of Fame player.  You start to run through the names and there are guys who helped a lot but you know aren’t the Hall of Famers.  Guys like Dave Rozema, Willie Hernandez, Kirk Gibson and Chet...

Essay question: Is it relevant that the greatest tribute to Derek Jeter in his final year came in the form of commercials?

There was the Nike RE2PECT commercial.Then the Sinatra Gatorade commercial.There was the Bernie Williams send-off in Boston. The Yankee ceremonies, by comparison, were predictable, overcooked and - frankly - boring.

Yes, ESPN compared Sam Ficken to Derek Jeter

The narrative was certainly right there for the taking. Penn State kicker Sam Ficken, a team captain who has seen his fair share of ups and downs during his time in a Penn State uniform, was given the locker of New York Yankees legend Derek Jeter for the 2014 Pinstripe Bowl. He scored Penn State’s game-winning extra point in overtime victory against Boston College. A walk-off win...

That's saying something, considering that Jeter's last game happened three whole months ago.Still, I respect what the hype monkeys were trying to do: They sought historical context for a football outcome in a stadium with no historical legacy.
