“I had heard he was coming to the stadium, but I didn’t know he was going on the field,” Jeter said after his final game in Arlington. “That’s a pretty special feeling”
“On and off the field, what he’s been able to do as a player and the way he’s respected and the way he’s gone about his business — for a young player in New York, he’s a good role model.”
Maybe the Yankees could add a helpful piece. But the difference makers will be the guys they gave all that money to last winter: Jacoby Ellsbury, Brian McCann and Carlos Beltran.
Jeter remembers the playoff games in Texas — the good and the bad. Now the Yankees captain has another milestone to go with them there.
Yu Darvish struck out eight in seven innings for his 10th victory and J.P. Arencibia had a tiebreaking two-run single for the Texas Rangers in a 4-2 victory over the New York Yankees on Monday night.
“It’s a short drive from Philly,” the 29-year-old told The Denver Post. “I’m with my family. I wanted to see (Derek) Jeter play one more time.”
Dioner Navarro hit a go-ahead single with two outs in the ninth inning, and the Toronto Blue Jays rallied after wasting three leads to beat the New York Yankees 5-4 Sunday for their first series win in the Bronx in nearly two years.
“Jeter should be the one,” Seaver said. “What can you say he hasn’t done? He has every credential imaginable — great player, good citizen. He plays the game properly, respects the game and his predecessors.”
The Daily News has spoken. So have its readers, who say there’s just one person more powerful in this town than WFAN’s Francesa: retiring Yankees captain Derek Jeter.
“I will say this: I think she stinks at her job,” he said. “I don’t think she’s very smart. I don’t think she comes across as very smart. I think Fox only hired her because she’s good-looking.”
Derek Jeter, who plans to retire at the end of the season, previously passed “The Iron Horse” as the franchise’s all-time hits leader in September 2009.
To contrast the popularity of Jeter with the dislike of A-Rod, Funny or Die produced a parody video in which New Yorkers pay their … er … respects to Rodriguez.
The Show Palace — located in Long Island City — said that all Yankees employees will receive free admission in addition to two lap dances, the website reported.
Pedestrians craned their necks as Derek Jeter stood in front of a food truck at Columbus Circle on Monday. Only in New York.
Shane Greene had little trouble finding the plate. Throwing to first was his problem. The rookie right-hander wasn’t the only player in pinstripes to struggle Monday night.
