Have We Seen the Last of Derek Jeter?

Posted: April 19, 2013 by B in MLB, Yankees

As news broke yesterday of the small crack in his surgically repaired left ankle, I couldn’t help but ask the question – Have we seen the last of Derek Jeter? Although surgery will not be required, Jeter will be sidelined till after the All-Star Break giving him time to help the crack heal. Jeter is 38 and it seems his body is now experiencing the rigors of age.  What does that mean for him moving forward? Jeter will push himself to beyond his limits to return, but what will Jeter be when he returns? This is the question.

Is This the End of A-Rod?

Posted: April 13, 2013 by B in MLB, Yankees

The report from New York Times reporter Michael S. Schmidt continues to lend credence to the lengths Alex Rodriguez will go to deny his use of performance enhancing drugs. A-Rod has been linked to steroids since his time with the Texas Rangers and this latest report adds to the lengths A-Rod will go to cover his tracks. Schmidt alleges that A-Rod tried to buy documents from the South Florida anti-aging clinic to keep it out of Major League Baseball’s hands. In an unprecedented move, MLB purchased all available documents from the clinic to prevent other MLB players implicated in this scandal to follow A-Rod’s lead.

So what does this mean for A-Rod? Who knows…it just adds to the tangled web A-Rod has weaved over the course of his MLB career. In conversation with colleagues, who is to say that A-Rod hasn’t been taking steroids since he was in high school? These are strong allegations, but I wouldn’t be surprised about anything with him anymore. This is just the latest case of A-Rod stealing millions and not being held accountable for anything. How much is honesty worth? Does it matter? A-Rod still has 5 years and $114 million left on his record breaking 10-year $275 million contract. I guess money can by all the cover-up you want, but the truth will always set you free.

Here is the link to Schmidt’s New York Times article.

NUTZ NOTES

The New York Knicks won their 13th straight with a 120-99 win over the Washington Wizards…Kenyon Martin left the game with a sprained ankle…the win clinched the Atlantic division…The Brooklyn Nets beat the Philadelphia 76ers 104-83…The New York Mets lost to the Philadelphia Phillies  8-3…The New York Yankees rocked the Cleveland Indians 14-1…The New York Jets signed S Dawan Landry

Sunday definitely put us locals in a New York State of Mind! The Knicks won it’s 12th straight, the Yanks shut down the Detroit Tigers, and the Mets rallied a win against the Miami Marlins. There’s no better place to be when the locals are winning then New York City! So why was Sunday so special? The Yanks scored 7 runs against the Tigers and Justin Verlander to a final score of 7-0. Verlander pitched 7 1/3, allowing seven hits, three runs, two walks, while striking out four. CC Sabathia out dueled his counterpart going for a scoreless 7 with four hits, three walks, and struck out four. The Yankee bats came alive with Francisco Cervelli going 2-4 and driving in two and Jayson Nix going 3-4 with a homer.

Back in Queens, the Mets scratched their way back to get a 4-3 win over the Marlins. The Mets were silenced by top Marlin 20-year old prospect Jose Fernandez for the first five innings surrendering three hits, one run, one walk, and striking out eight. Once Martinez was out of the game the Mets capitalized on the Marlins bullpen scoring three unanswered, capped by the two-run walk off single by Marlon Byrd.

The biggest win on Sunday came from the New York Knicks, who won their 12th straight against Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder with a final score 125-120. The Knicks were lead by Carmelo Anthony’s 36pts and 12 boards and JR Smith’s 22pts and two key three-pointers. Russel Westbrook lead OKC with 37pts, 11 rebounds, and 8 assists. If Anthony and Smith continue to play at this pace and with the likely return of Kenyon Martin, Kurt Thomas, and Amare Stoudemire, the Knicks could find themselves deep in the playoffs.

What a great day to be in a New York State of Mind!
