Could the Yankees ever be Royals? Young and athletic K.C. is everything that Bombers are not - NY Daily News

The Yankees are sinking in the standings because they have been applying patches to a problem which requires some dry dock time. It’s not because the game has shifted to benefit fast defenders.

Return to New York? Yankees considering Omar Minaya for front office position

It’s not clear what role he would fill, but Boland notes that VP of baseball operations Mark Newman recently retired while longtime Yankee scout Gordon Blakeley left for a job with the Braves.

He certainly has done all he could do in his three seasons with the Padres.  I assume.  I mean, who knows?  If you told me with conviction that the Padres folded five years ago, I would probably believe you.

News Report: Derek Jeter’s Hush-Hush Bash Could Be A Wedding

Feels like forever since we had a Jeter thread…

There’s a “buzz” that baseball’s most famous bachelor will be off the market for good by Monday, TMZ reported. But the site acknowledged not all of its sources believed the bash — with “several high-end party vendors” at the ready — was wedding-related.

The 40-year-old Jeter, who played the final game of his Hall of Fame-worthy career on Sunday, has said he’d like to start a family in retirement.

“I look forward to doing some other things in my life,” he said in February.

The Players’ Tribune

Jeter’s got a brand new bag.

I do think fans deserve more than “no comments” or “I don’t knows.” Those simple answers have always stemmed from a genuine concern that any statement, any opinion or detail, might be distorted. I have a unique perspective. Many of you saw me after that final home game, when the enormity of the moment hit me. I’m not a robot. Neither are the other athletes who at times might seem unapproachable. We all have emotions. We just need to be sure our thoughts will come across the way we intend.
So I’m in the process of building a place where athletes have the tools they need to share what they really think and feel.  We want to have a way to connect directly with our fans, with no filter.

I am working with other athletes, with editors and with producers to create a platform that gives us a chance to say what’s on our minds. It’s called The Players’ Tribune. Over the next few months, we’ll be introducing a strong core of athlete editors and contributors who will shape the site into an online community filled with first-person stories and behind-the-scenes content.

My goal is for the site to ultimately transform how athletes and newsmakers share information, bringing fans closer than ever to the games they love.

LinkedIn: 10 Sales Lessons From “The Captain”

LinkedIn??? Yeah, it was only a matter of time.

2. Be modest in success. The word “I” struggled to find its way into the Derek Jeter Vocabulary Book. Every action and every word has been for the greater good of the team or his audience. When fans serenaded him at Yankee Stadium during his final game with chants of “Thank You Derek,” the reaction wasn’t “you’re welcome,” but rather, “no, thank you.” Jeter’s success has always been attributed to someone else’s contributions, and success was never about “him.” It’s important to remember those who have helped pave success in your career—the managers who gave you an opportunity, the colleagues who shared their secrets, the teammates who supported your roles. Everyone plays a part, and no one can do it alone.

3. Have and maintain grit. In Jeter’s post-game press conference after his final home game, he acknowledged that there were better players, but that “no one works harder” than him. Jeter ran out every ball. He made every dive—even if it meant knowing that was the only way to stop. He played hurt, and never complained. If you attack your job with the grit that he did every day, there’s nothing that should stop you from succeeding. And conversely, if that grit seems to fade, it may be time to do what Jeter did—walk away, or take a break. When asked if he thought he could keep playing, his response was, “I think I can, I just don’t want to.” If you can’t look forward to going to the office, the only thing you’ll look forward to is being home.

5. Be on the top step of the dugout. Jeter’s head was always in the game—always. He was focused on the task at hand, even when it wasn’t his turn at the plate—can you picture him leaning over the rail and the screen guarding the steps to the dugout clapping right now? He was always the first to congratulate success or serve as a “pick-me-up” after a rough outing. He led by example. Even on days where he was 0-4 with a few strikeouts, another teammate’s success was top of mind. You may not always be the top performer on your team every month, but it’s important to recognize the value in others’ achievements. Equally important is supporting colleagues in times of need or demanding excellence for satisfactory efforts.

Fangraphs/Cistulli: Post-trade WAR for deadline trades

What follows is a list of all those same players, sorted by their WAR totals from August and September combined — which is to say, the two-month period since the trade deadline:

Small sample sizes alert!

But interesting.  The A’s acquisitions (Samardzija, Lester, Fuld, Hammel, Gomes) added 4.3 WAR so even if you deduct the full 1.3 WAR that Cespedes gave Boston, that’s a 3 win improvement.  The M’s acquisitions (Denorfia, Morales, Jackson) put up -1.1 WAR.  I wonder if they’d like that win back.

The Yanks also did very well despite Drew—he, Headley, Prado and McCarthy totaled 4 WAR.  Price was the other big prize and Peavy and Andrew Miller were good additions.

MLB’s Biggest Star Is 40 (And He Just Retired). That Could Be A Problem.

“If Mike Trout walked into your neighborhood bar, would you recognize him?” The New Yorker’s Ben McGrath raised that question in a provocative essay last month.

I’m reasonably certain that I would recognize the MLB outfielder if he walked into One Star. But McGrath’s point is well-taken. Despite being (as McGrath aptly calls him) a “once-in-a-generation talent,” Trout is relatively anonymous. Based on Google search traffic so far in 2014, Trout is only about as famous as Henrik Lundqvist, the New York Rangers goaltender. He’s one-fifth as famous as Peyton Manning — and one-twentieth as famous as LeBron James or Lionel Messi.

Trout’s also much less famous than Derek Jeter, a shortstop who hit .256, with four home runs, this year.

The Captain’s Log: Derek Jeter’s Lady-Killing Past, From ‘Yeah, Jeets!’ to Gift Baskets

Yes, the New York Yankees legend will go down as one of the greatest players in baseball history, but he’s also hit it out of the park when it comes to women.

Derek Jeter’s last professional at-bat is sure to elicit love, admiration, and decades of treasured memories for baseball fans across the country. The 40-year-old Yankee living legend has compiled 3,463 hits (and counting)—ranking sixth all-time—and has contributed too many iconic moments to mention. “The Flip.” “The Catch.” That amazing Seinfeld cameo.

For some of us, however, these nostalgic feelings will be more carnally driven. Baseball is losing not only one of its most revered players, but arguably its biggest heartthrob.

As Jeter Ends Farewell Tour, Yanks Plan a Welcome Party

BOSTON — Even before Derek Jeter plays his final game for the Yankees, which is scheduled to take place here Sunday, the focus has turned from Jeter to Alex Rodriguez — from a cherished star to a tarnished one….

With Rodriguez, there never seems to be a question of whether he is working hard. Cashman said Rodriguez had been working out diligently on his own in Miami and at U.C.L.A. and was eager to return. He said Rodriguez did not express an interest in playing winter ball, although Cashman did not seem particularly inclined to have him do it, either.

Cashman would not say what role the Yankees had in mind for Rodriguez next year, whether as third baseman, the first baseman or strictly at designated hitter.

He did say, however, that the hostility of the past had been eliminated and that it was now a matter of getting Rodriguez back on the field.

“It wasn’t a healthy process for anybody involved,” Cashman said of last season’s investigation and suspension. “But the process had finality, and now it’s about moving forward.”

Girardi, discussing who would replace Jeter as the Yankees’ captain and leader, also spoke about Rodriguez….

Madden: How dare the sabermetrics crowd and others try to diminish Derek Jeter’s greatness

And how dare the post-punk crowd and others try to diminish Joe “Fingers” Carr’s “Portuguese Washerwoman” greatness!

We never get to know Derek Jeter’s innermost feelings, but we know his pride, and that is why it is not hard to imagine, as he slapped that game-winning base hit to right field in his final Yankee Stadium act Thursday night, it was, in his mind, a middle-finger salute to all his Johnny-come-lately critics among the analytics bunch who have deemed his WAR credentials vastly inferior to the great shortstops of all time; all the talk radio yahoos calling him selfish and screaming for Joe Girardi to take him out of the No. 2 hole; and all the mean-spirited, blowhard TV pundits pontificating about how overrated he’s been as a means of getting attention for themselves.

There are always going to be the contrarians eager to tear down and diminish our sports icons because that’s what these people love to do, and if you dig deep enough, you can always find something to render them less-than-mythical. Heaven knows, the sabermetrics crowd has gone out of its way to do that, feverishly calculating all those ground balls Jeter supposedly didn’t get to over the years that cost the Yankees countless runs because of his perceived lack of range. Offensively they point out, because he didn’t hit a lot of home runs, he only once appeared in the top ten in OPS in the American League, so how can he, as essentially a “singles hitter” who never won an MVP, be considered one of the all-time greats? Along with that, the notion that he’s a leader and a winner? Oh, they are able to debunk that too. As one Jeter basher noted affirmatively last week, he won only one world championship after the core players from the 1996-2001 teams, Bernie Williams, Paul O’Neill, Tino Martinez, David Cone, et al, all left. Please.

... Careful, Bud. In this new generation of self-serving, eager media bashers and ivory-tower sabermetrician critics, you could be laughed off the field throwing that “hero” word around.

But I suspect Jeter has had his fill of these people, and when the cheers in normally hostile Fenway have subsided as he closes his career, he’ll go off into seclusion for a very long vacation from baseball, to which he gave everything, content in knowing that, in five years, his accomplishments will have earned him an overwhelming election to the Hall of Fame. Still, in these past few weeks, all these shots being taken at the best we have for a Stan Musial-like perfect knight have merely reinforced for him why it could never be unanimous.

Cameron: Derek Jeter: Not Just a Good Hitter for a Shortstop

Number 2ix?

As his career comes to a close, nearly everyone who covers baseball has weighed in on Jeter’s legacy, and unfortunately, part of that legacy is his status as a poster boy for disagreements between the traditional media and the statistically inclined crowd, especially regarding his defensive value. Jeter’s poor ratings at shortstop have made him the subject of numerous articles on defensive performance, and that has created the perception that Jeter has been a poor defender; a notion which Jeff did a nice job of debunking earlier this year.

But that’s not the only misconception I heard fairly regularly about Jeter. Perhaps because his career spanned the era where nearly ever team had a shortstop who could hit 30 home runs, even Jeter’s offensive value has been called into question, and more than once, I’ve had people ask me if Jeter was even really a great hitter; would we hold him in the same high esteem if he had (perhaps rightfully) been moved to an easier defensive position earlier in his career?

The answer should be yes, absolutely. Jeter doesn’t need to be compared to shortstops to be recognized as one of the best offensive performers of all time. ...

Of course, the primary driver of their respective rankings is playing time, as Jeter has nearly 4,000 more plate appearances than Ortiz. On a per plate appearance basis, Jeter isn’t Big Papi, but even if we even out playing time, Jeter still ranks ahead of some of the more notable sluggers of our time. For instance:

Player OFF/600
Sammy Sosa 18.4
Derek Jeter 16.7
Adam Dunn 15.5
Ryan Howard 15.3

Sosa hit 600 homers in his career, Dunn might get to 500, and while Howard has declined fairly rapidly, he was a legitimate force as a cleanup hitter for the better part of a decade. And Jeter has been their offensive equivalent, only he’s done it for 50 to 100 percent more plate appearances. Adam Dunn isn’t an all-time great player, of course, but if he had a 20 year career while performing at his career averages, would anyone question whether he was really a productive hitter? ...

Mets outfielder Bobby Abreu, former All-Star and Gold Glove winner, retires

I wonder what Kevin Stocker is doing now?

Bobby Abreu’s illustrious 18 year career is coming to an end. The Mets outfielder announced today that he will retire.

Over the course of his career, Abreu was one of the best hitters in baseball. He’s hit .291 in his career with a .395 on-base percentage. This season, only Victor Martinez, Andrew McCutchen and Jose Bautista have posted an OBP higher than that.

Abreu signed with the Mets in April and has had two stints with them this season—his last stop in a career that began in Houston, then seven years in Philadelphia, then the Yankees, then the Dodgers and Angels.

Abreu was an All-Star in 2004 and 2005, and won a Gold Glove in 2005 as well.

He told reporters he would eventually like to become a hitting coach.

Memory, Reality, and Derek Jeter

This article isn’t really about Jeter, it’s more about the things that we think we remember:

It’s Opening Day and I’m 10 years old.

I’m stuffed in the third-row seat of a brand new ‘96 Dodge Grand Caravan on the way to my grandparents’ house. The Yankees are on the radio. It’s the top of the fifth and I want to get where we’re going so I can watch the rest of the game on TV. This season, of course, is like no other — at least for me, anyway. We actually made the playoffs last year, the first time that had happened during my lifetime. I can sense it now, though. This sport, the sport I’ve been in love with since the first time I got a whiff of the inside of a pack of Topps, is about to present me with something new. Something beyond all of the things — the aesthetics and the statistics and the sound at the Stadium when the Yankees take the field — that already have their hooks in me.

And that something is about to have a name and a face pinned onto it that no amount of grumbling or tabloid fodder or cool-headed statistical analysis will ever be able to fully disaggregate from it.

Up steps a shortstop whose name and face I know from his call-up the previous September and from the four 1992 #1 Draft Pick cards at the front of my baseball card binder. “Take care of these,” Dad had said. He lines the ball to deep left and Sterling gives it the “high….far…gone!” treatment. It’s his first career homer. He’s not much older than me, really, and that’s a problem, because he plays my position and some quick math tells me that by the time I’m ready to break into the Bigs, he’ll still be in his early 30s. Granted, I’m not even the best kid on my Little League team, but I’m getting better and as long as Spike Owen and Alvaro Espinoza and Mike Gallego are the level of my competition, it’s doable, right? Crazier things have happened.

But THIS guy? No.2? This is going to be a major problem.


Here’s the thing: I remember this scenario vivdly. I remember it just as I wrote it. That precise sequence of images and thoughts centered around that first Derek Jeter home run is the origin story of my own private adulthood — the moment I realized I had to put aside childish things —at least according to what my internal monologue has been telling me for going on two decades.

The problem? It’s wrong. Completely, utterly, provably wrong.

Good-bye, Mr. November: Taking Stock of Derek Jeter’s Divisive Legacy

Jeter ranks in the top five. He’s fourth among all shortstops according to FanGraphs’s Offensive Runs stat, and third per Baseball-Reference… Put on the spot, I’d probably rate Jeter somewhere in the middle, as the fifth-best overall shortstop of all time, behind Wagner, A-Rod, Ripken, and Vaughan.

If we’re ranking the greatest Yankees, there’s just no way we can justifiably put Jeter above the big four: Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Mickey Mantle, and Joe DiMaggio, in that order… The no. 5 spot comes down to either Jeter or Yogi Berra, with Berra getting a major boost for tough-to-quantify catching contributions.

Finally, there’s the question of where Jeter ranks all time, among all players, from all teams… he’s somewhere around 50th all time, in line with greats like Chipper Jones and Ferguson Jenkins and a bit short of guys like Steve Carlton, Bob Gibson, and George Brett. And honestly, that feels about right.

Lindbergh: Dellin Betances’s Season & Bullpen Strategy

Dellin goes electric?

Despite being a setup man with only one save on the season, Betances has been lights-out enough to lead the majors in WPA — the first time a setup man has done so since Tyler Clippard in 2011. On the post-’88 leaderboard, though, the closers rise to the top, and Betances has to settle for a spot just inside the top 60.

Lindbergh: Where Dellin Betances’s Season Ranks Historically, and What It Teaches Us About Bullpen Strategy

Despite being a setup man with only one save on the season, Betances has been lights-out enough to lead the majors in WPA — the first time a setup man has done so since Tyler Clippard in 2011. On the post-’88 leaderboard, though, the closers rise to the top, and Betances has to settle for a spot just inside the top 60.3

The Goldilocks stat we’re seeking — a counting stat that doesn’t discriminate based on leverage — is Run Expectancy Wins, or REW. Using a framework similar to WPA’s, REW calculates the difference between the number of runs a team is expected to score in the inning at the start and the end of each play, credits/debits the batter/pitcher accordingly, and then compiles the differences to arrive at a full-season total of wins added or subtracted. But because it’s not sensitive to inning or score — a two-out, bases-loaded strikeout counts the same in the seventh inning of a six-run game as it does in a ninth-inning tie — it’s closer to context-neutral than WPA, allowing us to pit Betances against guys who got the chance to finish more games.

Araton: The Other Side of a Derek Jeter Hustle Play

Huckaby is not Huckabeelzebub…that’s that other guy.

The young man from the Lansing Lugnuts’ front office offered an email address for Ken Huckaby. “You’re welcome to try, but I should tell you that someone did a story recently on the Derek Jeter thing and Ken kind of regretted it,” said Ben Owen, the team’s digital media and marketing manager.

Late last month, SportsNet, a Canadian network, published the article on its website with the headline “Huckaby Had Lasting Impact on Jays, Jeter.” According to Owen, Huckaby, who is a hitting coach with Toronto’s Class A team, climbed aboard the bus that night and was immediately chagrined that several players, on their digital devices, were transfixed by his brush with fame — or infamy — 11 years ago on opening night in Toronto.

The last thing Huckaby intended was to cast himself as an extra in another Jeter extravaganza, his impending retirement, after how his first cameo worked out.

...Actually, Huckaby had a pretty good notion on opening night in 2003, and presumably is trying to teach young players with greater skills than he had to use Jeter as their role model: Play every day as if your day’s pay is at stake. That should be the reverberating message over the next 10 days as Jeter, saluted all season, receives his final, deserved rewards.

But he also might consider giving one thing back — or taking back — a rare misstep made across nearly two decades of brilliance. Call up the Lansing Lugnuts, get a contact for the old catcher who 11 years ago landed on him with his tools of ignorance. Tell Ken Huckaby that he gets it now, he respects the effort, and leave it at that.

McCarthy’s immaculate inning highlights Yankees win

It’s called the “immaculate Inning,” and it stands for complete and utter dominance… New York Yankees right-hander Brandon McCarthy became the sixth different pitcher to throw one this season. That’s a new single-season major-league record.

“I actually didn’t realize what it was until I got inside and I saw what it was on the broadcast,” McCarthy said. “I was just happy it was three strikeouts, but I didn’t realize what kind of an inning it was.”

“It’s something else you can add to your resume when you’re done, and a story you can tell someone that they won’t care about later on,” McCarthy joked. “But at least in the meantime it’s something cool.”

Joe Girardi put Derek Jeter’s farewell tour ahead of the team

Jon Heyman raining on Derek Jeter’s parade, oh my:

“In Cal Ripken’s final season at age 40, when he had a .637 OPS (a bit higher than Jeter), he started at 42 times at No. 7 in lineup, 37 times at No. 6, 44 times at No. 5, and twice at cleanup in 2001. The Orioles were also-rans with 63-98 record that year, but there was nothing sentimental about his placement in batting order by manager Mike Hargrove, who made the tough calls.

It might be more understandable, at least in Girardi’s regard, if Jeter batting second was a directive from above, but that isn’t the case. As with everything else, the Yankees met and discussed the situation. But in the end, it was Girardi’s call.

Anyway, against all reason, Jeter kept batting second.”

As a pitiful Mets fan, I’ve long since stopped caring about baseball. Sammy Sosa could have returned from the dead and started manning right field for the…wait, he’s not? I don’t believe you. Anyway, I do know the MLB regular season is wrapping up soon, but only because Bryan Cranston told me in a fantastic commercial for the playoffs. It’s more inspiring than a million Derek Jeter speeches.
