What happened to baseball over the last 30 years? Every current pro stands on the shoulders of previous generations of players and owes them -- and the game -- their respect and gratitude.

For me, and likely many other teenage and 20-year-old Yankee fans, Jeter represented a childhood role model. For my generation, he means just as much as Mickey Mantle, Joe DiMaggio or Babe Ruth meant to the young people of their respective generations.

Jeter's place in Yankee, and indeed baseball history, is significant, but still not clear. Much of that will take shape after Jeter retires.

The Yankees and Tanaka

The Tanaka signing will come under a lot of scrutiny; and it is very likely that if he starts out slow or if the Yankees have the poor season many foresee, Tanaka, and his contract, will be blamed. The Tanaka signing, however, is on its own a good and defensible move.

The New Yankee Mess

After a flurry of expensive free agent signings the Yankees have upgraded modestly in center, and significantly behind the plate, but they have gotten much worse at second base and have done nothing about big holes at shortstop and third base.

September 21, 2008. A gorgeous summery day in the Bronx. Sunshine, and scattered harmless clouds in the sky. The bat, its white-taped hilt towering above the rubble and fencing around its base.

And Then There Was One

Lincoln Mitchell | Posted 09.24.2013 | Sports
Lincoln Mitchell

The Yankees are in a difficult position with Derek Jeter. Navigating the end of Jeter's career so that it ends without him playing for another team, and with the appropriate fanfare and celebration, is in the interest of both Jeter and the Yankees and will require compromise by both sides.
