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 […]

The last night in Yankee Stadium and a memorable speech by The Captain.

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 […]

Remembering ‘The Flip’

Jeter has 96 hits in 66 career Division Series games.

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 […]

arod_dugout

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 […]

Derek Jeter starts a blog

Player's tribune_o

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 […]

October Playoff Moments: When Old Yankee Stadium Rocked!

'96 Yanks World Series Champs

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

One last captain curtain call

Baltimore Orioles v New York Yankees

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 took place. At the urinal or in the stall, perhaps washing […]

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

Baltimore Orioles v New York Yankees

Derek Jeter brought in the first run, scored the second run, and would eventually hit the walk-off single to walk off the field a winner, in his final Yankee Stadium game.

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 […]

Thank You, Captain Jeter

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 […]

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 […]

Preview: Jeter’s Last Home Game (9/25/14)

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 […]

Yankees game 154: Bautista, Jays too much for Yankees

Major League Baseball along with the MLB Fan Cave recently released their tribute video for Derek Jeter that will begin airing this weekend on ESPN, FOX, TBS, and MLB Network. While the video titled “Legacy” might not bring a tear to your eye like the recently released Gatorade spot, they certainly get the message across. […]

Latest Derek Jeter commercial by Gatorade is pure class

New York Yankees v Baltimore Orioles - Game One

After Jordan’s now infamous RE2PECT commercial, Gatorade might have just upped the ante with their latest tribute style video ad featuring Derek Jeter. It features Jeter as he walks down Rivera Ave to the music of Frank Sinatra’s “My Way”, soaking it all in for one last time. Apparently Jeter had full directorial control of […]

Even For Yankees Icons Tough Going Out On Top

Kansas City Royals v New York Yankees

Most players don’t go out on top.  Likely because most players don’t want to leave with something still left in the tank or they simply don’t have enough left in the tank to leave at the pinnacle of their respective sport.  In the case of Derek Jeter, his storybook career would suggest a sixth title […]
