In a time when baseball's reputation had been damaged by players posting statistically-fattening numbers and shattering long-standing records because of juiced-up cheaters, Derek Jeter managed to always play the game the right way while maintaining consistency throughout his career.

Pedro Martinez Shows Solidarity With a Young Pitcher

Lincoln Mitchell | Posted 12.01.2014 | Sports
Lincoln Mitchell

Ventura is a very good young pitcher who was a member of the Royals rotation all year where he posted a very respectable 3.20 ERA and a 14-10 record. Bringing him in to pitch in an unfamiliar situation like on only two days rest seemed especially strange and almost cruel to the young pitcher.

Derek Jeter, and Our Own Mortality

What must this past season have been like for a man with still so much life before him, hearing all those eulogies to his youth? "Ballplayer" is the only identity Jeter has ever known, and now, at an age when many are only getting started, he will have to redefine his life.

Saying Goodbye (?) to Ichiro Suzuki

I've been watching baseball pretty avidly since I was 8 (more than 35 years now, horrifying as that is to type). And while Ichiro may not have been the best player I've ever seen (he rarely walked or hit with power), I think he's been my favorite player to watch.

Sunday Roundup

This week brought some notable farewells. First, Charlo Greene, a 26-year-old TV reporter in Alaska, won the Internet when she dropped the f-bomb on air and quit her job to work full-time on marijuana reform (she pulled off a rare viral double play when, during an interview on HuffPost Live, she smoked a joint). Making a less theatrical but far more significant exit, Eric Holder announced he is resigning as Attorney General. Of course, Holder has agreed to remain in his post until his successor is confirmed by the Senate -- so, given the current state of D.C. dysfunction, he may be AG for some time to come. Finally, after a series of violent nightmares, the sports world delivered a fairy-tale ending as Derek Jeter capped his legendary career with a storybook walk-off hit in his last game at Yankee Stadium. We offer them all a sincere -- if ill-thought-out -- #LatteSalute.

Pulitzer Prize-winning sportswriter Dave Anderson (who covered Namath in the '60s) said it best when he told me once in a press elevator during the 2000 World Series, "The difference is the Yankees have Derek Jeter and the other team doesn't."

If you're a Boston Red Sox or New York Mets fan (or another who's been on the receiving end of one of his clutch hits or into-the-stands or leaping-catch play), you've probably been waiting for this day for quite some time: Derek Jeter's last game.
