Video: Derek Jeter works out for first time since cortisone shot

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Mar 22, 2013 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

It was wonky for me too. See if this works.

I’m heading over to the minor league complex to watch Phil Hughes pitch. Since I’m not going to be in Fort Myers and won’t be able to provide any updates from down there, it seems silly to have a game post. If you’re following the game online, feel free to throw some updates in the comments of this post. I’m sure everyone will appreciate it. I’ll be back later with some updates from the complex on Hughes, Hiroki Kuroda and Travis Hafner.

For now, I added a video of Derek Jeter working out today, along with some audio of Jeter discussing his workout and his plans going forward.

    If anyone else gets hurt I’m canceling the season.

    Got to run. Have a good one All.

    Catch you later.

    Thats true, woops, but I read that Legends expects 70 million annual from the venture. So not as much as I thought when considering the lease. ~15 to 20 million in profit.

    Jeter is annoying me with his “I wanna play Opening Day” crap.

    It’s not about playing Opening Day, Derek, it’s about playing as many games as possible in what will probably be your last season with the Yanks if you insist on two or more years.

    JF – Thanks for the info on the reset from the last CBA. So my understanding is that even if the Yankees slashed payroll 50%, under the old CBA they’d still be on the hook for revenue sharing…?

  8. jacksquat March 22nd, 2013 at 12:47 pm

    Under the old CBA if the Yankees went under the luxury tax threshold they would of course not pay any luxury tax.

    Ugh I worded that weird: when they went back up above the threshold they’d be on the hook for the % they were taxed previously…?

    Luxury tax and revenue sharing are different.

    Under any CBA, if they were under the LT they’d not pay any tax, but only in the new CBA do rates get reset. Every team pays or receives revenue sharing.

    The team is still on the hook for revenue sharing in this CBA. Its just that certain teams are going to be forfeiting their share, and if you’re under the LT threshold you get it back. If not it goes to the poor teams. Its basically 35% of 1 years worth of revenue sharing if they are under the LT threshold for 2014 and 2015.

  17. Jerkface March 22nd, 2013 at 1:06 pm

    This is the old CBA:

    The Competitive Balance Tax rates shall be 22.5%, 30% and
    40%, as provided below.
    (a) The Competitive Balance Tax rate applicable in the 2007
    Contract Year (“Initial Tax Rate”) shall be 40% for those Clubs
    that had an Actual Club Payroll above the Tax Threshold in the
    2006 Contract Year and 22.5% for all other Clubs.
    (b) A Club shall be subject to a Competitive Balance Tax rate
    one level higher than the Competitive Balance Tax rate applica-ble to it in the previous Contract Year for each consecutive Con-tract Year in which its Actual Club Payroll is above the Tax
    Threshold; provided, however, that a Club with an Actual Club
    Payroll over the Tax Threshold may not be subject to a Compet-itive Balance Tax rate above 40%.
    (c) A Club with an Actual Club Payroll below the Tax Thresh-old is subject, during the following Contract Year, to a Competi-tive Balance Tax rate that is one level lower; provided, however,
    that a Club subject to a 30% Competitive Balance Tax rate in the
    previous Contract Year shall again be subject to a 30% Competi-tive Balance Tax rate in the Contract Year following a single Con-tract Year in which its Actual Club Payroll was below the Tax
    Threshold and shall be subject to a 22.5% Competitive Balance
    Tax rate in the Contract Year following two (or more) consecu-tive Contract Years in which its Actual Club Payroll was below
    the Tax Threshold. A Club with an Actual Club Payroll over the
    Tax Threshold shall always be subject to at least a 22.5% Com-petitive Balance Tax rate.
    The possible Competitive Balance Tax rate progressions for
    Clubs with a 40% and a 22.5% Initial Tax Rate are set forth in
    Attachment 27.

    They changed the CBA tax rate from a soft stepping down to a hard reset.

    Jerkface -

    So to me, all the reasons for the Yankees doing this is there in a nutshell. I’ve been focusing on the LT, but the revenue sharing is also something they have HATED HATED HATED paying out. So it makes sense to me that they’d like a shot to get their money back if they can.

    So will they be cutting their nose and spiting their face?

    Are they actually okay with taking a chance on losing attendance and other sources of revenue for a year or two if people really do stay away? Have they figured out a threshold at which they would rethink this plan (aside from the team not winning, I mean a loss threshold)? How far do ratings have to drop on YES? (Do they track ratings throughout a game, or just who tunes in at the start, or how many tuned in at the start versus how many are there still watching at the end of the game?)

    The team on the field can still win, I believe. I do not think they will be in last place because their pitching is too good.

    I am not happy with Hafner so far – he’s really not shown much, but maybe he just takes longer to get going, as they say power hitters do.

    Thats not their revenues. YES has paid the Yankees around 70-80 million a year for the ‘rights’ to broadcast the Yankees. Which is a discount. They end up having around 300-400+ million in revenues. With the FOX Deal, they re-upped their broadcast agreement for 25 years with escalating annual payments to the Yankees that will be 300 million at the end of it.

  48. Shame Spencer March 22nd, 2013 at 1:33 pm

    Man, I can’t even be like ‘how does Nova look, guys?’ because no one knows!

    What are they airing on YES right now? Do they not air these games because of cameras in the stadiums or something?

  49. Jerkface March 22nd, 2013 at 1:35 pm

    JF – My bad, so it’s YES’ revenue and they just pay the Yankees. Is that right?

    YES makes its own revenues from advertising, subscriptions, and whatever. They pay the yankees for the rights to broadcast the Yankees. This is a sweetheart deal because YES and the Yankees are owned by the same company (with partners) and they want to maximize profits. This is why Legends does the concessions at NYS as well.

    So you have:

    Yankees Revenues (Gate, TV deal [80 million, increasing], MLBAM movie, MLB TV deal money [which is going to double in 2014 an extra 25 million for the national tv], merchandise share, stadium store merchandise, less revenue sharing [the yankees pay 25-27% of revenue sharing applicable money to the rest of baseball) – This is around 400+ million a year

    YES Network – 300-400+ million a year, some of this is sent over to the Yankees above

    Legends Hospitality – Runs the NYS and Dallas Cowboys concessions and other things

    This is why the Yankees are the richest team in baseball. They also got a free 400 million in the Fox News YES deal.

    If MLB wants people to take the WBC seriously – and it has the potential to become the World Cup of baseball – they should shut the season down for one month in July. But, of course, we all know the greedy owners would never agree to that…no matter whether it’s for the good of the game or not.

    I had to listen to Bob Costas giving the tournament the hard sell night after night, but how can the WBC have any credibility when the greatest baseball-playing nation in the world has yet to reach the semi-finals?

    bruce – My idea, to offset the $ from lost games by having the WBC in July would be to include as many ballparks in the Pool rounds as possible. Some west coast, east cost and central.

    It’s not really fair to other countries but they seem interested no matter where it’s held, so that could be a way to compromise.

    __________
    I think there is a patented laser procedure the Yankees perform on our catchers’ eyes, which somehow translates to a superior level of eye to hand ability. This results in preternatural pitch framing skills as well as increased ability to execute gymnast-like movements, such as the Arabian Dive Roll and Handstand Forward Roll, which increase our catchers’ blocking abilities. Don’t say we aren’t on the cutting edge of the catching avant garde!

    As an optimist I will conclude the Yankee minor leaguers showed their hitting abilities against Hughes.

    Mesa let a ball go over his head. I couldn’t tell from the radio if it was catchable. Then, Rivera with a throwing error at first.

    I think there is a patented laser procedure the Yankees perform on our catchers’ eyes, which somehow translates to a superior level of eye to hand ability. This results in preternatural pitch framing skills as well as increased ability to execute gymnast-like movements, such as the Arabian Dive Roll and Handstand Forward Roll, which increase our catchers’ blocking abilities. Don’t say we aren’t on the cutting edge of the catching avant garde!

    Everyone is trashing Cashman’s trash sorting. Its pathetic that the Yankees actually HAVE to engage in it to stay afloat. It was cute when these guys were last man on the bench types. Less cute when the Yankees are finding multiple starters there.

  123. yankeefeminista March 22nd, 2013 at 2:32 pm

    I’m not sure why you don’t understand that Cashman deserves the criticism he gets, and that he let the team get old while he busied himself making wise cracks, instead of good deals to avert disaster, at the expense of young players he got rid of who then made him look bad (“Kennedy’s an NL pitcher,” Melky’s a fourth OF,” etc), and iconic Yankees (see Jorge Posada, Derek Jeter).

    But whatever.

    You obviously feel ardent about Cashman for some reason. Snarling though at the heels of everyone who calls him on his foolishness like some over-wired poodle is a weird way to spend your time on a discussion board, and I expect you’re going to hear that whenever you take potshots at people for expressing their opinion.

We have the right to comment on our team’s moves whether positive or negative. If you like this team than enjoy it/love it, but don’t ask others to blindly agree with every move the Yankees make.

You’d double up the Pool games (I think there are 39 games total in the tournament according to that weird graphic they released) to get it done but with west coast/east coast I can’t imagine that’d be a big deal. It’s not a totally perfect system but you could use 13 different stadiums each WBC, with each getting 3 games a piece. It doesn’t make up for the other 7-9 home games they’re losing but they might like the idea of having a special international event hosted at their stadium. It would rotate every WBC so no stadium goes more than 2 WBC without being represented.

    JS, then you can choose to either address or ignore those posters. But too many people conflate everyone into one poster/post with this for or against heading rather than differentiating and responsibly reading a post.

    “Not yet. The payroll this year is very close to what it was last year. It’s just half of it is on the DL.”

    the payroll is irrelevant….it’s what you buy with it that matters. You can pay 100 grand for a Ford Fiesta…..that doesn’t make it a Ferrari….it’s still a Fiesta.

    Context. I replied to a post essentially about payroll (trying to be like everyone else = lowering payroll).

    Except that almost never happens.

    The bigger issue is the people who apologize for mismanagement, almost no matter what.

    Tackleberry,

    So you can show us the same people who wanted Jackson or Kennedy gone are the same ones who criticize? Really? I doubt it. It is simply a further unjustified, unsubstantiated, thoughtless statement you frequently make.

    You have no suggestions. You have no thoughts. You just criticize others. Hey, that does feel good.

    bruce – I think the whole tourney could be played in 20 days.

    I would really like to see them do something massive within the regular season because how much longer can they go on pretending that the Netherlands team is a true representation of the country? Most of them wouldn’t know the difference between an Easter Bonnet and a Dutch Cap.

    The Yankees for the past couple of years dramatically changed their way of doing business. In fact, they are doing business different from everyone. They have not, with the incomprehensible Ichiro exception, signed any players to more than one year contracts. That leaves players who are largely unwanted by others.

    That is a policy that is doomed to failure. Next year, they will control about a dozen MLB players. How they will fill the rest of the roster with a limited amount of money and a limited pool of players is beyond me. I do not think they have any comprehensible plan to do so either.

  167. Jerkface March 22nd, 2013 at 2:59 pm

    MY thought is that lets wait til the season starts before we jump the gun and predict gloom and doom.

    No one is going to do this. Simply reacting to whats happening isn’t fun. Humans derive pleasure from making predictions and having them come true. This happens every day in your life whether you realize it or not. No one wants to sit there and passively react to the world around them.

    Well maybe some people do, but for people that go out of their way to engage passionately about a topic in a group setting I DOUBT that they are the types.

  172. yankeefeminista March 22nd, 2013 at 3:02 pm

    tackelberry, no I don’t think I am. All I am saying is that it is unproductive to conflate posts/posters and assume one viewpoint across a broad spectrum of posters. And especially to daily assume this “us” against “them” mentality when we are all diehard Yankee fans.

  173. austinmac March 22nd, 2013 at 3:03 pm

    Tackleberry,

    The whole point of the board is to express and hear others people information and opinions about all aspects of the team. Should we simply sing Cum by Ya.

  174. Shame Spencer March 22nd, 2013 at 3:03 pm

    bruce – I agree completely.. I did some research and found that almost all of the international leagues break for an All-Star game in July.. it’d be great to engage the other professional leagues in a meaningful way. I know a lot of money comes through in the regular season but there has to be a way to bleed this thing so the revenue lost isn’t a major issue. People will buy just about anything and lord knows MLB will find a way to market and sell it.

    I wonder if the struggles of Nova and Phelps in their last couple of starts have opened an opportunity (ever so slight) for Nuno to get a shot at a start if Hughes isn’t ready at the start of the season (which he probably won’t be).

  182. Rich in NJ March 22nd, 2013 at 3:08 pm

    “The whole point of the board is to express and hear others people information and opinions about all aspects of the team. Should we simply sing Cum by Ya.”

    It’s almost as if some people are willing to tolerate two types of fans. The ones who think the Yankees do everything perfectly, and the ones who think they are nearly perfect.

  183. austinmac March 22nd, 2013 at 3:09 pm

    I don’t think hiccups near the end of ST is gonna squeeze Nuno in past Phelps or Nova, this is around the time guys start to get that spring dead arm. However I think Nuno has definitely catapulted to the head of the pack in the AAA call up area. Only problem is that Warren and Marshall on the 40 man, so they may still get preference.

    But i’m sure everyone has been impressed with his command this spring.

  185. Jerkface March 22nd, 2013 at 3:10 pm

    LHP Vidal Nuno “has opened everyone’s eyes” this spring, according to Cashman. Still has a chance to make the club.

    Speak of the devil…

  186. Shame Spencer March 22nd, 2013 at 3:10 pm

    Austin just hits, hits, hits…. if the OF is in shambles by the ASB, get the kid in there.

    It’s gonna be really interesting to keep up with the media coverage of the team this year. Some were mentioning what all of us doom and gloom folks would do if the team wins 10 games out of the gate. I’d be interested to see the media response as well. Similarly, I’m looking forward to the ridiculous reaction to a 10 game losing streak (that’s realistically bound to happen in the course of a season). I think when these things happen will have a big impact on the perception of the team.

    I would love to see the Yankees give Nuno a shot. Let’s give the younger players areason to believe they will get a chance if they perform well. Nuno has been very good since the beginning of last year. That said, you or I are as likely to start.

    Yeah, I’m probably going to change my name because people can’t seem to get past it.

    Some people never say that Cashman has done anything right. Maybe they’ll give him the Swisher trade. Or they will say he dot a couple “dumpster dive” moves right. But that’s it. I simply interject from time to time so this board isn’t just a Cashman bashfest. Of course whenever someone dares speak to the contrary they get called an “apologist” or they are “in love with him”.

    if they put Nuno in a short reliever role after the spring he’s had they really need their heads examined-then I’d want Cashman to jump out of plane again but this time land on his head, maybe it would knock some sense into it.

    Yahoo had a story of a guy who’s parachute malfunctioned and he fell into the Earth from 8,000 ft, impacting at 30 mph. Other than a dislocated shoulder, he was fine. If he were a Yankee? He would have spontaneously combusted upon impact.

    Cash gets his fair share of credit the problem is he hasn’t lived up to the goals he set for himself and the organization. 6-7 yrs ago he stated that with money nd the farm the rest of the league better watch out but instead the exact opposite has happened. The league is flushed with money and farm/young players and the Yankees are old

    If that meme gains traction, he could be traded for a pitcher.

    Considering he will be 29 this season, that may not be a bad thing in his case.
