Jeter Owns New York

The World Series starts tonight featuring the Giants, a National League mainstay, and the Royals, an American League team had not been to the playoffs since they won the World Series in 1985. For years the Yankees were mainstays in the Fall Classic, and Jeter was at the center of many big moments.   #51567475 / gettyimages.com Derek Jeter’s lifetime World Series numbers are...

This day in Yankees history | 2003

There’s a flyball deep to left! IT’S ON ITS WAY, THERE IT GOES! AND THE YANKEES ARE GOING TO THE WORLD SERIES. AARON BOONE HAS HIT A HOME RUN! The curse was alive and well. Old Yankee Stadium was rocking. Aaron Boone circled the bases and jumped onto home plate. The Boston Red Sox and their fans had experienced more heartache. Ah – the good old days. 11 years ago today, Boone...

Time to Cash Out

  The Yankees have given Brian Cashman a three year extension and this has caused a rift in Yankees fans. People either love Cash and call him a genius or absolutely despise him, there’s no middle ground. Since Cash has been with the team, they have won 7 AL pennants and 5 world series. Now I am a guy that gives credit when credit is due, and credit for all the success since...

Derek Jeter’s farewell to old Yankee Stadium

On a Sunday night when the New York Yankees were victorious over the Baltimore Orioles by a score of 7-3 (and Jose Molina hit the last home run in this Yankee Stadium), the game was a distant second story. After playing just over a three-hour game, Derek Jeter and the entire Yankees roster stepped onto the center of the diamond and The Captain addressed the 54,610 in attendance....

This day in Yankees history | 2012

Although they were down 2-1 heading into the bottom of the ninth inning, it felt like it was 10-1. The 50,497 in attendance had been quiet all night. There was no emotion. No fight. No heart. And then Raul Ibanez stepped up to the plate. Alex Rodriguez, who was supposed to hit second in the inning following Ichiro Suzuki, was a spectator on the bench. He had gone 0-for-3 with 2 strikeouts...

Jeter Gets Help From A Kid

Last week for the start of the Division Series, I remembered The Flip – perhaps Jeter’s career-defining play. But what happened during game 1 of the 1996 ALCS put him on the map for the rest of the baseball world. 1996 was – for lack of a better term – a magical season for Jeter and the Yankees. Derek was Rookie of the Year, the Yankees won the AL East for the first time...

Remembering ‘The Flip’

The Wild Card playoff games and Division Series kicking off this week got me jazzed up and craving Yankees October baseball. To supplement, I decided to take a trip down memory lane and remember some of Jeter’s greatest postseason moments. As we all know, the Yankees are not in the playoffs for a second straight year. No season in memory has ended with such bitter-sweet solemnness...

A-Rod praises Derek Jeter’s career from afar

Now that Derek Jeter‘s career is over, everyone has chimed in on the Captain’s illustrious career over the last few weeks. That includes Alex Rodriguez, who spoke with ESPN the Magazine’s J.R. Moehringer about Jeter as a player, and how he felt about watching the magical final home game from his Miami headquarters. Prior to A-Rod becoming a Yankee 2004, both he Jeter were considered...

Derek Jeter starts a blog

Derek Jeter is not wasting any time with some of his post career endeavors. He’s been making his rounds on TV, doing some candid interviews and showing a side of him we are not used to seeing. It doesn’t stop there. This morning on his Facebook page, Jeter announced he was starting a blog called the Players’ Tribune, a website that will eventually be a media outlet for athletes...

October Playoff Moments: When Old Yankee Stadium Rocked!

I know what you’re thinking. It’s October and the New York Yankees are nowhere to be found. Fear not, I have the perfect elixir for the lack of postseason noise emanating from the Bronx, this postseason. Although Yankee Stadium II turned out the lights for good after the 2008 season, I reflect and list my top 12 playoff moments at “The House George Renovated.” With apologies...

Yankees game 162: Pineda finishes strong in Jeter’s final finale

New York Yankees 9 — Boston Red Sox 5 Michael Pineda pitched six plus strong to end Jeter’s final season with a win. After the ceremony in honor of Derek Jeter, in the words of The Captain, “we got a game to play.” In the first inning, against Clay Buchholz, Derek Jeter would be the second of three outs in the inning, a line out to shortstop Jemile Weeks. Michael Pineda would...

Derek Jeter takes in Fenway his way (Photos)

There have been a few firsts and lasts for Derek Jeter on his farewell journey, including this candid look at the Captain taking a casual stroll through Fenway Park after yesterday’s loss to the Red Sox. I’m pretty sure this might be one thing he has never done before. Jeter is seen here walking the hallowed grounds of Fenway, the ballpark that has seen its share of big Yankee...

Preview: Derek Jeter’s Curtain Call (9/28/14)

The legend comes to an end and Michael Pineda (4-5, 1.93 ERA) and Clay Buchholz (8-10, 5.31 ERA) get a front row seat. Pineda has come a long way since the pine tar incident against the Red Sox earlier in the year. His last time out he threw 7 1/3 scoreless innings holding the Orioles to just one hit and at one point retired 13 in a row. Buchholz had a shutout going against the Rays...

One last captain curtain call

Derek Jeter can leave the game proud. (photo credit: back9network.com) I feel bad for the poor bastards that just couldn’t hold it anymore. Thursday night, there had to be people that were at the stadium but in the bathroom when one of the unequivocally best things that has happened in the new Yankee Stadium was taking place. At the urinal or in the stall, perhaps washing their...

Yankees game 161: Red Sox rough up Tanaka, Yankees

New York Yankees 4 — Boston Red Sox 10 An awful second inning is too much to overcome as the season approaches its end. In the final start of Masahiro Tanaka‘s rookie season, the star Yankees pitcher was roughed up. After a quick hitless first inning, including a strikeout of Derek Jeter, Tanaka would start the inning with a leadoff double by Mookie Betts. Xander Bogaerts would...

Masahiro Tanaka (13-4, 2.47 ERA) makes his second start off the DL in the second to last game of the year against Joe Kelly (3-2, 4.00 ERA). Tanaka made his first start since July 8th and gave up just one run to the Blue Jays over 5 1/3 innings. Joe Girardi says he will be limited to 85 pitches this game. “It should give me some confidence and then allow me to go back to Japan...

Yankees game 16): Yankees open final series with win

New York Yankees 3 — Boston Red Sox 2 The Yankees looked to keep rolling from the emotional high with the last series of the 2014 season. Chris Capuano and a lineup of mostly bench players were given the task of starting the series in Boston strong. After benefiting from instant replay catching Yoenis Cespedes briefly off of second base to end the first inning, Allen Craig hit...

Oh yeah, there’s three more games to go. No last night wasn’t the end of the season as much as some of us would like to think it was. Chris Capuano (1-3, 4.73 ERA) makes his last start of the year against his former team. He will take on Steven Wright (0-0, 3.38 ERA) in the first game in Fenway. Capuano will make his 12th start of the season and possibly last in pinstripes....

Yankees game 159: Jeter bids farewell in walk-off fashion

Baltimore Orioles 5 — New York Yankees 6 In a “made for Hollywood” script, Derek Jeter says farewell to Yankee Stadium with a walk-off single. During the signature roll call in the first inning, Orioles leadoff batter Nick Markakis hit a home run off of Hiroki Kuroda during Derek Jeter’s part of the roll call. Alejandro De Aza followed with a home run of his own for back...

Oh Captain, My Captain!

It was business as usual on February 12th as I sat in my office, doing work and occasionally checking out my Twitter feed. All was well in the world as baseball was right around the corner with pitchers and catchers getting ready to report to Spring Training. Hope was in the air for the 2014 Yankees team after signing big-name free agents Masahiro Tanaka, Jacoby Ellsbury, Brian McCann...

Thank You, Captain Jeter

#150270850 / gettyimages.com It’s a rainy day in the Tri-State area. Very October-like. Today is supposed to be Derek Jeter’s final regular season game in pinstripes. While many fans would prefer a sunny, warm, fall-like day, perhaps it’s appropriate that it’s rainy, because today is a sad day. Let’s just hope Mother Nature cooperates enough to allow The Captain one more...

Derek Jeter Yankee Stadium Moments

These Jeter games, I’ve seen a few but still I face, the final countdown. As Derek Jeter readies to play his final home game at Yankee Stadium, along with a few more at Fenway Park, I thought it would be fun to embark on a journey of Jeter games I’ve witnessed in person. Not included are the games I saw Jeter play at Heritage Park, for the Double-A Albany-Colonie Yankees in 1994...

Hiroki Kuroda (11-9, 3.77 ERA) will make his final start of the year, and most likely his career, in Derek Jeter‘s last home game against Kevin Gausman (7-7, 3.57 ERA). Kuroda is coming off a strong performance against the Blue Jays throwing 6 2/3 innings to get to 11 wins for the fifth straight year. He allowed three runs on seven hits without issuing a walk and K-ing seven...

Mark Teixeira would follow with a double to right field that scored Headley all the way from first base. The Yankees would plate another with a solo home run to right field by Stephen Drew. Bud Norris would strike out the next five Yankees before he...

Yankees game 157: O’s scatter enough to beat Yankees

Baltimore Orioles 5 — New York Yankees 4 The Baltimore Orioles kept the hits coming but the Yankees kept it close. In tonight’s game, the Orioles had at least one hit in every inning. An analysis like this is not promising for the Yankees. After keeping the Orioles off the scoreboard in the first inning, Brandon McCarthy would give up the first run of the game and it came to...
