After retirement announcement, Jeter returns to work (with video)

Think about the number of times Derek Jeter has taken batting practice in his life. Do you think today’s BP felt different? It was just another routine day at the minor league complex for Jeter, but it was also the first day since the announcement that he will retire at the end of the season. Even if Jeter’s known for a while, surely something changed the moment he made that decision official.

Derek Jeter“I said last year I feel blessed to play with Mariano,” Francisco Cervelli said. “(To play) with Andy and with the Captain, it’s an experience that I’m going to tell all my kids and the people that I know because I think (Jeter)’s the greatest player I’ve ever seen in my life.”

Predictably, Jeter didn’t say much today. As he pulled out of the minor league complex in his Mercedes, Jeter did stop for a while to sign a few autographs, and he answered just a few questions from the massive crowd of reporters who gathered around him (I tried to get some video of the scene, but it was a bit chaotic). Jeter was asked whether he felt good about yesterday’s announcement.

“I do,” Jeter said. “I’ll address it when we get over there, the first day of spring. It’s easier that way.”

For Jeter, the first day of spring is Wednesday when position players officially report to Yankees camp. Pitchers and catchers report tomorrow.

“I know from the other dugout, with other people, and the last three years being around (Jeter), there’s the utmost respect you can have for a baseball player or any athlete on the field,” pitching coach Larry Rothschild said. “That’s not just from me, that’s from anybody who watches his career and how he’s handled it. I’m not that comfortable talking about it, because he’s in that spot where I think he needs to answer the questions and I don’t think I should be answering questions that probably he should answer. All I know is that when you put him in the conversation, of maybe one of the greatest Yankees, I don’t know if you have to say much more than that.”

    @jonmorosi: Yankees were among teams scouting Cuban free agent shortstop Aledmys Diaz at his showcase today, sources say. @FOXSports1

    “the Jeter?”

    Franco, my Brosius and the Yankee team numbers would be the 1998 team. If this team can emulate that team, the possibility exists that Ellsbury, Beltran, Gardener can give us the Bernie, O’Neill, Curtis numbers with the same idea that Text and Tino, Johnson and Brosius, McCaan and Posada will do the same. It is this way that I can forget about Cano and accept Roberts as playing the role of Knoblauch on a team that puts 900 runs on the board.


    Not to sound patronizing but I really think you need to temper your expectations a lot.

    The 1998 team was a machine on both sides of the ball that wasn’t going to be stopped.

    This team has far too many gaping holes to expect that kind of offensive production. I’d be tickled if they scored 800 runs – but to approach 900 runs?

    I just don’t think that’s possible with the roster as currently constructed.

  4. BoJo February 13th, 2014 at 5:12 pm

    I suspect that Aledmys Diaz might be the second half replacement for Roberts at 2B. Sign him and give him half a season to adjust at AAA to US and 2B.

    The farm is supposed to be Cashman’s baby but there doesn’t seem to be any accountability for their failures in that area.

    Development, development, development…….

    …All MiLB systems strenghts/weakness’ are results of combinations of:

    Draft Position
    …and luck.

    It’s NOT all about development !

    DVL is ONE aspect !
    You forgot 2 important aspects which are under Cashman’s control….Free agent signings (as far as who to recommend) and international talent signings.

    Can’t say that I have been impressed by Cashman on either front. He was against rafaeil Soriano and didn;t convince Hal to invest more in international (especially Cubans). I do think he does a pretty good job on trades and bargain basement hunting,

    The Cuban (& others) certainly are an important factor into the MiLB equation.
    My bad forgetting.
    ML Free Agents not so much – they usually get right on the ML roster…it’s the career MiLB Free Agents are those that he’s missed on…

    I was trying to explain that any Minor League successes ARE NOT just “development”…. you can’t develop a duck, no matter what…..and late round draft picks are almost purely ‘crapshoots’….alotta ducks.

    Any player that was drafted in the later rounds have already been passed over by all the other clubs 1x – 2x – 3x – 4x – etc…’s basically luck —- throw ‘em up against the wall & some may stick…

    (some may be ‘unknown gems’)

  6. Russell Munson February 13th, 2014 at 5:15 pm

    The average American League team scored 5.01 runs per game in 1998 compared to 4.33 runs per game in 2013. The game has changed.

  7. BoJo February 13th, 2014 at 5:19 pm

    Upstate…I agree about draft positions…which is why it was so important for Yankees to pursue other avenues…which they were late to game on.

    Another aspect of development is signing young talent to extensions when still possible. i don’t know if it was possible with Cano after he hired Boras, but signing DRob and maybe Gardner now should be a priority of a smart GM. They can always trade the asset.

  8. BoJo February 13th, 2014 at 5:20 pm

    Correction…the game hasn’t changed, the drugs have.

  9. EG Clark February 13th, 2014 at 5:26 pm

    Bojo, hope you are right on Diaz. Adding him as a mid-season addition could be a huge boost to the team for the secon half run.

  10. Sock Puppet February 13th, 2014 at 5:33 pm

    We should have traded Cano for Aaron Hill when we had the chance

  11. Russell Munson February 13th, 2014 at 5:36 pm

    “Correction…the game hasn’t changed, the drugs have.”

    That’s the easy excuse, but the strike zone has expanded.

  12. Pat M. February 13th, 2014 at 5:42 pm

    Baring any major injuries, The NY Yankee offense is not going to be an issue, in fact they’ll be sporting one of the more potent lineups in the game in 2014. I still have concerns about the rotation depth and the lack of bullpen depth.

  13. Ys Guy February 13th, 2014 at 5:46 pm

    I think the change in runs per team is partly because strikeouts have exploded in the past decade.

  14. Ys Guy February 13th, 2014 at 5:51 pm

    strikeouts are up by almost 200 per team since 2000.

  15. UpState February 13th, 2014 at 5:54 pm

    Sock Puppet February 13th, 2014 at 5:33 pm
    We should have traded Cano for Aaron Hill when we had the chance

    Heck, with 20-20 hindsight we should’ve traded him for almost anyone !

    …anyway Cano is one wild fastball from being labeled as ‘injury prone’

    (see: Ellsbury)

  16. Mike_Boston February 13th, 2014 at 5:54 pm

    Pat M, granted the pen is going to be relatively unproven in their new roles, but if there is one thing Girardi can do is manage the pen. I’ve got confidence that the pen will continue to be a strength. Of course I’m not minimizing the impact of losing Mo but it seems we have some solid arms in there. The rotation on the other hand, Rothschild will be more than earning his salary with all the new pieces in the rotation.

  17. tomingeorgia February 13th, 2014 at 5:57 pm

    At least he’ll be drawing iy.

  18. Hankflorida February 13th, 2014 at 5:58 pm

    I just don’t think that’s possible with the roster as currently constructed.

    Franco, you are right, but in order to forget about Cano, I saw Roberts as a Knoblauch type of player, and then when they signed Ellsbury, I thought of Johnny Damon coming to the Yankees for his legs and hitting 24 homers which is a little below Bernie Williams output. Why can’t we do the same with Belran in comparison to O’Neill and Gardener can easily outdo Chad Curtis. When Chip says Johnson will hit 25 home runs, I answer with just give me Brosius’s clutch hitting and his 19 homers when it counts. McCaan and Text hitting like Posada and Tino is reachable, and Soriano holding the DH to those power numbers of Strawberry is also doable. There was a 1938 song that I grew up with that sums up my above scenario, “I Can Dream Can’t I.”

  20. Pat M. February 13th, 2014 at 5:58 pm

    Mike-Boston….I think we’re going to see some unexpected arm come up and make a huge impact in the bullpen this summer. Maybe some-one like Betances or even Montgomery. As for the rotation, Michael Pineda is the wildcard for solidifying the staff.

  21. Bret The Hitman February 13th, 2014 at 6:01 pm

    Giuseppe Franco February 13th, 2014 at 5:05 pm

    Uh yeah, I’ll have to pass. It took you over a year to pay Nick in SF $25 and you liked him.

    You would never honor losing a bet with me, so no thanks.


    That’s because a girl in my life said I was going to be a father and I went into a spending freeze. I suppose that could happen again so..

    How about we bet this…

    If I win, you have to sig – line all your posts with – in my opinion

    and I will sign mine <3 Gardner

  22. Mike_Boston February 13th, 2014 at 6:04 pm

    Good point Tom. This is a make/break year for Rothschild I’m thinking. He’s been a mixed bag so far IMO but an upgrade over the last guy; which wasn’t difficult.

    Pat M, how about Manny B coming in to get his feet wet in August and see how he does?

  23. Blojaldo February 13th, 2014 at 6:07 pm

    Sock Puppet February 13th, 2014 at 5:33 pm
    We should have traded Cano for Aaron Hill when we had the chance.

    That’s crazy talk. No one knowledgable about baseball would ever propose such a thing.

    Only ‘closet’ fans would …………..

  25. Pat M. February 13th, 2014 at 6:13 pm

    Mike-Boston….I like Manny B and I look forward to hearing from an old LoHuder who’ll see him throw this spring. Maybe he’ll improve his touch around the zone since the retrofitting surgery. Love his arm though…As for August, if he impresses he could moving up quickly this summer. Rotation is thin in the Bronx

    man, that’s rubbing it in.

    it’s hard to imagine green grass back here in the northeast.

    i played golf once in january and the kid i played with got mad because i made him play the ball as it lie.

    it’s not my fault he hit it into a lot of snowdrifts.

    ROMA Quanto costa la parata militare del 2 giugno? In tempi di crisi e di pesanti tagli perfino allo stesso bilancio della Difesa sono in molti a chiedersi se non si potrebbe ridurre la spesa per la tradizionale sfilata di uomini e mezzi in programma a Roma mercoled . La sinistra antagonista ne chiede come da copione la cancellazione: per spazzare via le spese militari, dall’Afghanistan ai Fori Imperiali , centinaia di esponenti dei movimenti sociali organizzeranno il 2 giugno una contro sfilata a Ponte Sant’Angelo. Il tam tam gi partito sui social network. Mentre i moderati si rimpallano la domanda chiave: quanto costa la parata?Rispondono Giulio Marcon e Massimo Paolicelli, promotori della campagna Sbilanciamoci : la sfilata militare del 2 giugno comporta una spesa che, di fronte alla solita inesistente trasparenza della Difesa, abbiamo calcolato in circa 10 milioni di euro .
