As I talk to Yankee fans both in person and online, a common theme has been popping up the past few days. Many fans are arguing that Derek isn’t all that hard to replace, and some even say the team would be better off without him. He’s a .270 hitter who was [...]
Rob Neyer touched on a subject that few others have even dared to speculate about, but I must admit it’s something I’ve been kicking around myself the past few days. Here’s what Rob said:
I haven’t seen Derek Jeter‘s portfolio. I’ll guess that even a paltry $45 million (before taxes) does mean [...]
With the Derek Jeter contract soap opera looming large in the background, occupying media and fan attention, nothing major has happened during the Yankee offseason. Despite the lack of progress (as far as we know) with the Jeter, Rivera, Pettitte, or Lee contracts, Brian Cashman has moved ahead to explore some bullpen alternatives. Ken Rosenthal [...]
Talking to fellow Yankee fans or listening to sports talk radio, you hear the same arguments being made over and over again by those who take Jeter’s side in these negotiations. I’ll recount them one by one and try to answer them as succinctly as possible.
“They paid Kei Igawa/Carl Pavano/insert bum here XX mil [...]
The following graphic represents the BIS data from 2002-2005 that is used as the basis for statistics such as UZR and +/-. The three plots represent all batted balls for those seasons, broken down by batted ball type. The graphic displays a major flaw in the current defensive metrics that are based on batted ball [...]
Because of the on going Derek Jeter negotiations (they show up in every article, huh?), I’ve been thinking a lot about the last player the Yankees took a hard stand on: Bernie Williams. Like Jeter, he was an icon of the team. He’d spent his whole career with the Yankees, winning four World Series [...]
While its fun to speculate, the reality of the Yankees hot stove situation is that Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera will be jerks about this, but they’re not going anywhere, and it is unlikely that Cliff Lee lands anywhere [...]
Bill Madden is reporting that sources in the Jeter camp are looking for a deal that would pay Derek 25 million per year until age 42. He writes:
Throughout this process, Close and Jeter have never revealed what they’re actually looking for – which is why so many Yankee fans, opposing club officials [...]
This post is a cliche, and I don’t care.
–I’m thankful for the fact that I can write for this great blog. I love being able to share my thoughts with you at a moment’s notice just because I want to. I’m thankful for my fellow writers. They challenge me to be better at this [...]
As Yankee fans we have many blessings. Rooting for the most successful franchise in sports history is a recipe for a sports life that will be filled with many magical memories. While most fans in most cities are happy to simply make the playoffs, Yankee fans are crushed when they [...]
