Jeter, having been my favorite player on my favorite team for as long as I've known home plate from a China dish, is a final vestige of childhood irrationality.

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.

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

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.
