Jeter: “I’ll be ready”

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Dec 04, 2012 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

After yesterday’s Alex Rodriguez news created such a stir, today was naturally going to feel a little more quiet here in Nashville. Dan Haren is off the market, but there doesn’t seem to be one story dominating conversations the way Rodriguez did yesterday.

But there is this tidbit: Derek Jeter’s not fat anymore.

Easily overshadowed by the Rodriguez news, Jeter did a radio interview yesterday and said he actually got a laugh out of the New York Post photos that seemed to show him carrying a few extra pounds. Apparently people had actually been telling him he’d lost weight, and then all of a sudden he being called “Derek Eater” in the Post.

MLB Network’s Harold Reynolds even tweeted a picture of Jeter, and photographic evidence certainly suggests Jeter’s in the same shape he was during the season.

Far more important than a non-story about his weight is the status of Jeter’s broken ankle. He’s still wearing a boot, but Jeter told Michael Kay that there’s no doubt he’ll be ready for Opening Day.

“No question,” Jeter said. “I’ll be in the walking boot for another few weeks, and then I’ll be good to go It’s been a long process. What’s it been, six or seven weeks, where I haven’t been able to move too much? But it’s healing probably just as expected. We still got a long way to go before the season starts, but I’ll be ready.”

    “Still.. it’s the risk you take when handing out long term pacts to any player. I mean, the Dodgers could give Cano $200 million and have him snap his knee so badly he can never play again. I don’t think they should be off the hook for it in terms of team salary because they got a bad break.”

    They aren’t off the hook…. Still would have to pay him….I just don’t think it should count towards the taxable payroll because it prevents you going and replacing a player that will never play again

    Well yeah I get that monetarily they aren’t off the hook but again, it comes back to risk/reward. If a guy gets a career ending injury (which could be interesting to even debate if this were a rule, tbh – could be why it isn’t one as it might seem arbitrary in some cases) that’s a risk the team takes when signing them. It hasn’t stopped anyone from giving out these outrageous deals so that right there tells you something (that the game is flush with money, and the risk is worth it).

    Saying it ‘prevents’ a team from replacing that player is silly… because nothing prevents the team from replacing the player but the team’s desire to maintain a certain profit margin. They aren’t forced to replace anyone nor are they forced to hand out the deal in the first place… I do understand what you’re saying but it isn’t realistic because it would be used as a loophole.

  6. Nick in SF December 4th, 2012 at 1:14 pm

    I think the rule should be that whoever has posted the most Montero song parodies on LoHud up to this point in time gets Arod’s salary for each day he’s on the DL and none of it counts against the LT, but that’s not the rule and no other scenarios that aren’t the rule are going to become the rule until the next CBA.

    As Pete Townshend sang in the Who song However Much I Booze,”there ain’t no way out”.

  7. Jerkface December 4th, 2012 at 1:14 pm

    Shame gets it, we need to stop thinking about this in terms of a team being unable to do something, but rather unwilling, and what that means for us as fans.

  8. Patrick December 4th, 2012 at 1:15 pm

    Jack Curry ?@JackCurryYES
    With ARod out, Yanks have spoken with Kevin Youkilis’s agent. Word is that Youk would consider 1-year deal if money was at premium amount.

    Anyone want to sign Youk? I’d consider it..

    I get it….I just think it’s unfair…most teams don’t care about the luxury tax because they don’t pay it…..just getting the insurance money would low them to replace the player they lost…..but for luxury tax paying teams it makes a difference

  10. blake December 4th, 2012 at 1:17 pm

    If for example the Rays lost Longoria for his career tomorrow and he was insured for 70%…..the rays could take that 70% and go sign somebody else without being penalized……

    Mike Olt:

    .288 .398 .579 .977, AA
    Texas League

    Ronnier Mustelier:

    .353 .412 .598 1.010 AA, Eastern League
    .303 .359 .455 .815 AAA, International League
    .314 .371 .488 .859 combined AA+AAA

    Make the league adjustment, are they that different? (aside from Olt being 4 years younger, but this isn’t about prospect status)

    I’d say different. Olt has more discipline, more power. I’m all for giving Mustelier a shot though!

  16. blake December 4th, 2012 at 1:21 pm

    “Saying it ‘prevents’ a team from replacing that player is silly… because nothing prevents the team from replacing the player but the team’s desire to maintain a certain profit margin”

    It’s not silly because in the Yankees case it would make a big difference…..they may not be able to replace the player because it might push them over the limit and therefore kick in lots of other taxes…… Whereas a team with a lower payroll it wouldn’t matter……

    Sure you can say the Yanks should just say screw it and do it anyway….but they don’t seem to want to operate like that and as a fan I want them to have te most money available to spend as possible

  17. Jerkface December 4th, 2012 at 1:21 pm

    Youkilis hit .235 .336 .409 .745 last year, I would not pay him a premium amount but a cheap 1 year deal ok whatever.

  22. Jerkface December 4th, 2012 at 1:23 pm

    Yes and the Yankees chose to do that so if one gets hurt they will have to eat the penalty if they replace the player.

    I think it’s really funny how some of the things that have been talked about here are just now being picked up by beat writers and such.

    “Yes and the Yankees chose to do that so if one gets hurt they will have to eat the penalty if they replace the player.”

    They would only consider paying him a premium on the premise that he returns to 2010 numbers.

    Unfortunately

    But the team is penalized in a completely even and fair way. They spent the money, so they are penalized. Another team didn’t so they aren’t.

    Selig doesn’t care about that situation. He wants teams like Milwaukee, that probably don’t bring in 1/10 the revenue to MLB that the Yankees do, to have an almost equal chance of winning. Remember, Bud the used car salesman watched his Brewers get beat by the bigger spending Yankees many years, up to the point where he later moved them out of the division (just coincidental of course). Selig is a weasely, disgusting man who is BFF with guys like Loria and Henry.

  37. austinmac December 4th, 2012 at 1:29 pm

    The Dodgers clearly show staying under the cap is a choice. The Yankees choose to put forward a weaker team so they can stay under it. The Dodgers opt to seek more income from a successful team.

    It is a choice.

  38. oak2455 December 4th, 2012 at 1:29 pm

    Do think if Yanks get Youk that Joba throws at him somehow??

  39. Jerkface December 4th, 2012 at 1:31 pm

    I would hate signing Youk to play 3B though, because he cannot play the position really anymore and because I made fun of the red sox for moving him back there with the A-gon deal and it turned out it was correct to make fun of that and then the yankees would go and do the same mistake :(

  40. blake December 4th, 2012 at 1:31 pm

    12:27pm: Scutaro isn’t expected to sign with another team without the Giants getting a final shot at him, says Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle (Sulia link).

    11:43am: The market for free agent infielder Marco Scutaro is heating up, according to Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports. The FOX duo reports that the Cardinals are eyeing Scutaro as a potential starting second baseman, while the Yankees, in the wake of news of Alex Rodriguez’s hip surgery, also likely have interest.

    Marco could fill a need

    RF – Ichiro
    3B – Olt

  49. Shame Spencer December 4th, 2012 at 1:43 pm

    blake – You kinda hit the nail on the head by saying it only effects teams paying the luxury tax (which, as of now, are only the Yankees). There’s no incentive to institute a rule that would exclusively help the wealthiest teams in baseball.

    Again, there is a risk to handing out deals for that length.. the risk is that you’ll have to pay it all and it will all count. It really isn’t that unfair. The response from every other team in baseball would be ‘you shoulda thought about the luxury tax before you signed X player.’ And no one is going to buy a team like the Yankees crying poverty over a big contract. Teams that really do have budget issues aren’t going to find a rule where the Yanks can get out of major deals like that very fair. And again, you also have the issue of determining what a career ending injury consists of… which I could imagine could be quite problematic.

    Jack Curry of YES Network reports that the Yankees have spoken with Kevin Youkilis’ agent.
    The Bombers are currently looking for a stop-gap option at third base with Alex Rodriguez expected to be out until midseason following hip surgery. Word is that Youkilis would consider a one-year deal at a premium amount, which seems to fit into the way the Yankees are doing business this offseason. It’s a possibility if Youkilis can’t find more appealing options elsewhere

  55. Nick in SF December 4th, 2012 at 1:45 pm

    “The Dodgers clearly show staying under the cap is a choice.”

    It is indeed a choice and, as someone posted earlier, an easier choice to make for the team trying to make a splash and that hasn’t been over the cap before and will be paying the penalty rate of a first-time offender, as opposed to the team that’s been over the cap many times (every time?) and currently pays the highest and most punitive rate.

    The Yanks being over the cap each year has been a choice as well. Including this year. I say this without making any qualitative evaluation of the different choice the Yanks are apparently making for 2014, but it’s not like the Yanks and the Dodgers face the exact same ramifications in 2013 for the choices they make.

  56. blake December 4th, 2012 at 1:46 pm

    Also, one might argue that a team like the Rays paying out a deal for a player that can no longer play is more detrimental to their budget, even if it isn’t accounted for in the luxury tax.

    youkilis + chavez + arod + mcgehee = about 140 games at 3rd. nuney can handle the rest probably.

  85. brianlopez22 December 4th, 2012 at 2:00 pm

    Mike Ri-
    I don’t see his value.
    I think he is extremely overrated and gave the Wite Sox a lift when he first came over but fizzled at the end of the year.
    He is another recovering injury that Boston has to push out.

  86. blake December 4th, 2012 at 2:00 pm

    If they don’t trade Andrus then Kinsler won’t be at 2B next year most likely because Profar is ready and they’ll want him there

  87. Cashmoney December 4th, 2012 at 2:01 pm

    MiLB: I think there’s some parallels between you and Josh Hamilton’s story, have you followed his career and how he’s overcome a lot of those same issues?

    Heathcott: By far my favorite player in Major League Baseball. I love it, it’s an unbelievable story. I can’t compare to some of the stuff, some of the struggles he went through. But he has the good Lord behind him. He won’t be perfect, but he knows in the end he has a home in the end, and that’s awesome. I love watching him play, he plays hard.

  94. Nick in SF December 4th, 2012 at 2:04 pm

    A one year deal for Youk would be another one of those so-called pillow contracts, but in this case it would mean that I would hide under a pillow every time his face was my TV. :neutral:

  95. brianlopez22 December 4th, 2012 at 2:04 pm

    Stewart is a high strikeout guy.
    If you’re going that far down the garbage heap, you might as well give the job to Adams and Ronnier.

  96. Chambliss December 4th, 2012 at 2:05 pm

    Youk with the WS:

    80 games
    15 HR
    46 RBI
    .236 BA
    .771 OPS
    69 BB

    http://www.baseball-reference......ke01.shtml

    If the Yankees are going to try to get under $189 million for 2014, why not sign Youk to a one year premium deal in 2013?

    Some sort of a platoon with Youk and Chavez makes a lot of sense to me. Youk can also spell Tex at first.

    Like I said yesterday, the guy can be a pain, but he works the count and is a good situational hitter, unlike many of the guys who were in the lineup last year. For those who want to return to the days of gritty players like Brosius and O’Neill, Youk is your kind of player.

  103. Cashmoney December 4th, 2012 at 2:10 pm

    Youk is also easy on the eyes which could exponentially spur Yanks sex appeal. Another matinee teen idol in the form of former bosox can possibly expedite the youth movements like Hamilton. but in this case, the whole crop.

  121. The Return of Stoneburner December 4th, 2012 at 2:19 pm

    Rangers cannot trade Andrus for Price – - – -do they stay with Andrus go with Profar for Price – or do you team Hamilton up with Upton and gof with Profar at SS. The latter option is much more affordable – but what is your preference for building a team:

    Upton, Hamilton, Profar

    Andrus, Hamilton, Price

    Rangers have options – - – -

  122. Tyler December 4th, 2012 at 2:20 pm

    Youkilis improves the Yanks at 3B, better plate discipline… Reynolds might be the better player now, but he needs to play 1B now.

    I don’t particularly like the idea of signing Youk…. though I always respected his competitiveness. A Chavez/Keppinger combo makes more sense.

  131. G. Love December 4th, 2012 at 2:29 pm

    I’d sign Youk. He hates the Red Sox & would want to make them pay with every at bat. He takes a lot of pitches which help and we’re losing with Swisher departing. He always plays hard.

    Put him in a platoon situation where he plays some 3b, DH’s some, plays some 1b to get Tex out of there and he works on this team.

    If we can’t get young guys, we might as well get guys like him and Ichiro who play every day with pride and want to be the best.

  132. Chip December 4th, 2012 at 2:30 pm

    That’s absolutely good news about the Yankees being very interested in Keppinger – I hope it works out.

    Can’t see Youk being a serious option for the Yankees for all the reasons Joel Sherman points out – he’s not the best clubhouse guy and he’s got back problems. Also he’s just not good anymore.

    There’s some expectation that Jason Kubel will be traded today – I’m hoping it’s part of a deal with Chris Johnson to the Yankees. I don’t like Jason’s defense or his K rate but he’s got a swing tailor made for the stadium.

  133. austinmac December 4th, 2012 at 2:30 pm

    Youk can still be decent and likely better than in house options. I would prefer a longer term solution since I have my long term doubts about AROD returning, but that is probably not likely.

  138. Chip December 4th, 2012 at 2:34 pm

  139. G. Love December 4th, 2012 at 2:34 pm

    Unknown,

    I do prefer Keppinger over Youk, but I wouldn’t take a flamethrower to this place over a Youk signing.

    Keppinger, to me, is the kind of guy this lineup needs. He does positive things with the bat even when he makes outs and makes a lot of contact.

    I would love him to be on the team. He also plays the game hard and always did going back to his Mets days.

    Alex will have had two hip surgeries and a knee surgery in the last three years. This upcoming surgery is an extensive one it appears. I understand giving him a chance to return due to the huge money involved, but I have significant doubts he can return to being a full time player.

    the mets had their moneyball guys analyze which FA outfielder best fit their payroll and roster situation and the computer came up with :

    jason bay! :)

    I’ll be more annoyed with the Yankees if they lose Abe Almonte on Thursday than I will if they don’t make any moves before then.

    @Buster_ESPN: Bidding on Marco Scutaro said to have reached something in the range of 3 years, $24 million; SF viewed as frontrunner by source involved.

    There goes that option…..I played SS, 3B, and 2B in college and would be open to a 1 year deal

    The Rangers appear to be doing a strong job maintaining leverage in their various talks, by keeping a lot of possibilities in the air.

    Cashman is floating around that indoor river they have there mumbling to himself most likey

    You guys have a higher opinion of Curry than I do. I’ve Never heard anything out of him that was “Stop the presses” worthy. He’s merely another go-along-get-along guy. Probably throwing that out there to get a “suit” off his back.

  195. Ys Guy December 4th, 2012 at 3:10 pm

    which formerly .260 hitting, over 30 middle infielder who now rakes is more likely to fail a ped test next season, scutaro or keppinger?

  196. Tar December 4th, 2012 at 3:13 pm

    “Jon Heyman ?@JonHeymanCBS
    #rangers apparently werent very anxious to sign napoli. word is, they offered 2 yrs at less than half his $39M redsox haul”

    Stupid Rangers–that’s Russel Martin money.

  197. bruceb December 4th, 2012 at 3:13 pm

    If you’re going to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.

    Does this mean Swish will be going from skinhead to hippie again?

    Would far rather see him join the Giants than the arch enemy up the road.

  198. blake December 4th, 2012 at 3:14 pm

    @Joelsherman1: Agree with @JonHeymanCBS because Swisher pal told me if couldn’t play in NY or LA wanted SF #SFGiants. #Yankees

    I wonder if Swish is even moderately surprised that the Yanks aren’t interested in his services.

    And they offered Russel Martin half of what Russel Martin got sooo :)

    Using that logic isn’t Russell Martin money the $0 the Yankees offered him?

  202. Shame Spencer December 4th, 2012 at 3:16 pm

    @Joelsherman1

    Of course Swisher also hired Dan Lozano, and that usually means looking for highest bidder #Yankees #SFGiants

  203. Shame Spencer December 4th, 2012 at 3:16 pm

    You win again!!

  204. LGY December 4th, 2012 at 3:16 pm

    LOL, Face are on top of it

  205. Nick in SF December 4th, 2012 at 3:16 pm

    Does Swisher know that there’s a big brick wall in RF? Not a good place for him to be doing his somersaults, although the heavy air (fog, marijuana smoke) might cushion the blows somewhat.

  206. Tar December 4th, 2012 at 3:19 pm

    “And they offered Russel Martin half of what Russel Martin got sooo ”

    Which is double what the Yankees offered. :D

  207. blake December 4th, 2012 at 3:20 pm

    Maybe Posada and Broscious will do one year deals

  208. blake December 4th, 2012 at 3:20 pm

    @Ken_Rosenthal: #Indians’ efforts to trade Choo hampered somewhat by Twins’ return for Span: Class A pitcher, albeit good one. Span 3 yrs of control, Choo 1

    Maybe a good bargain….

  209. Shame Spencer December 4th, 2012 at 3:22 pm

    I just wanna start singing Whitney Houston’s ‘I Have Nothing’ on loop…

  210. Shame Spencer December 4th, 2012 at 3:22 pm

  211. Tar December 4th, 2012 at 3:26 pm

    Is you man crush on Napoli all driven by trying to prove Pat M wrong, or do you actually believe he’s worth what the Sox overpaid?

    Have fun, catch ya later.
