Pipeline Inbox: Comparing Swanson to Jeter | MLB.com

Somewhere out there is a New York writer ready to make this quote, “Dansby Swanson, I watched Derek Jeter. I knew Derek Jeter. Derek Jeter was a friend of mine. Dansby Swanson, you’re no Derek Jeter.”

Yankees To Retire Derek Jeter’s Number On May 14

The ultimate honor:

Derek Jeter’s No. 2 is being retired, the last of the New York Yankees’ single digits. The Yankees said Tuesday the number will be retired on May 14 before a Mother’s Day game against Houston, and a plaque in his honor will be unveiled in Monument Park during the ceremony.

Jeter’s number is the 21st retired by the team. He won five World Series titles and was a 14-time All-Star during a 20-season career that ended in 2014 and he is sixth in career hits with 3,465. Jeter set Yankees records for hits, games (2,747), at-bats (11,195), doubles (544) and stolen bases (358).

Going to be tough for Gleyber Torres to top that.

Votto ‘reaches out’ to Mays, Musial, Jeter

“I was striking out a tremendous amount,” he said. “I was striking out far too much and to me that was not going to stand the test of time. Again, I looked at Willie, I looked at Stan and I looked at Derek. Willie and Derek stood out to me the most. Both of them struck out during the first two months almost the same amount they struck out the last four months. That means they struck out so much that they said, ‘OK, I’m not doing that any more’ and their seasons ended up being pretty standard for them. They didn’t speak to me directly, but they spoke to me through their Baseball-Reference page, through their game logs and their game experience. And I’m grateful for that and hope that in the future I get to do that for a younger player.”
