Yankees’ Derek Jeter Is Back on Field, Keeping the Faith

leave a comment

To the contrary, we almost always did know with Jeter, or believed we knew exactly who he was, and even when we began to think he was a player in decline, Twentieth Century Jeter would invariably resume smacking balls into right-center with that inside-out swing, sliding into second and popping up with a clap of his gifted hands.

Who Listens To George Brett Anyway?

So much for Brett’s assertion that Jeter’s 3000th hit would be a hard one to get. Jeter went yard for this one.

Very happy for the Yankee who made me a Yankee fan.

Yankees’ Negotiations With Derek Jeter Take Ugly Turn

leave a comment

Note to Cashman, et. al., I completely understand that you need to maximize your investment and that you need to consider the fact that if you renew Jeter’s contract you’re looking at something like a 40-year-old shortstop when his contract is finally up. But you best not miss the value of Jeter’s presence on the field and in the clubhouse.

The ONLY reason I became a Yankee fan after being a Yankee hater for most of my life was because of Jeter. He’s a class act and he’s a player who convinced me that being a Yankee wasn’t just about the money. It was about heart and the love of the game.

Don’t do to Jeter what you did to Bernie, it’ll be a mistake that we both regret.
