Jeter Cleans House Via Remote Control

Derek Jeter doesn’t even own the Marlins yet, but he already has informed the team that he plans to fire two special assistants who are in Baseball’s Hall of Fame (Andre Dawson and Tony Perez), the manager who led them to the 2003 World Series championship (Jack McKeon), and the player known as Mr. Marlin (Jeff Conine), according to two MLB sources.

And here’s the twist: Jeter asked Marlins president David Samson to fire those four Marlins luminaries for him, because Jeter didn’t want to do it.

Even more strange: Jeter made the request after telling Samson what he already knew: that Samson would not be returning as team president.

I wonder if they received gift baskets?

A-Rod reportedly passed on opportunity to oppose Derek Jeter in Marlins bidding

We could have had two prominent Republicans, each with their own former Yankee superstar, bidding against each other for the Marlins. Why can’t we have nice things?

Ranking Yankees!

“Who is the greatest Yankee in history after Babe Ruth?”

It’s not a question that would hold any interest for the late George Steinbrenner, who once quipped: “Second place is really first loser.” But we baseball fans are suckers for rankings, so rankings shall commence.

—————

As a hitter, Derek Jeter is second only to Honus Wagner among shortstops; as a defender, Jeter is second to literally every player to ever man the position.
