    Rob Neyer

    A very tired Keith Law held off on his nap to bestow the baseball knowledge for Tuesday's Baseball Today podcast -- I was there, too! -- and here are some of the topics we discussed! 1. Future Hall of Fame slugger Jim Thome breaks a milestone and ...

  3. Jeter's bonuses mostly for show

    Rob Neyer

    We can finally put Derek Jeter's new contract to bed, as Jayson Stark has details of the incentive clauses that might escalate his 2014 salary from $8 million to $17 million: Jeter is guaranteed salaries of $15 million next year, $16 million in 201...

  4. Wednesday Wangdoodles

    Rob Neyer

    Today's links are actually a little full of themselves. I'm not sure why. Granted, today there are more of them than usual. But more isn't always better ... What's that? You're hoping the Yankees don't sign Derek Jeter and instead your favorite ...

  5. Jeter's case springs from the heart

    Rob Neyer

    Another from the mailbag about The Most Important Negotiations Ever: Rob, as a lifelong Yankees fan and Derek Jeter admirer, I have a question for you. As a purely baseball matter, its fairly obvious that a 3 year, $45MM contract offer is pretty...

  6. Monday Mendozas

    Rob Neyer

    Today's links almost didn't bother, because all the new news is about Derek Jeter and even that's not really new news. But the blog is a harsh mistress, my friends, and so the links must go on ... Evan Brunell interviews Bill James, and the resul...

  7. New deal for Jeter was never a sure thing

    Rob Neyer

    This, from the Times' Michael S Schmidt, is the best analysis I've seen yet of The World's Most Important Negotiations: Derek Jeter's agent, Casey Close, is currently asking the Yankees to agree to a new contract of either four or five years at $23...

  8. Should Jeter want to be modern Babe?

    Rob Neyer

    Yankees fans who argue that Derek Jeter should get whatever he (and his agent) want haven't yet come to grips with the paradox they've created. More on that in a moment. First, Jeter's agent: "There's a reason the Yankees themselves have stated ...

  9. Too many Gold Gloves, not enough MVPs?

    Rob Neyer

    A friend tweets : "It's absurd that Jeter won a Gold Glove, but no more absurd than his never having won an MVP." No, it's not. It's not nearly as absurd. Jeter's won five Gold Gloves, and hasn't deserved any of them. If you tilt everything tow...

  10. Gold Glove results mixed, as usual

    Rob Neyer

    I have to get this out of the way ... Yes, Derek Jeter has just won another Gold Glove. It's his fifth, which means he's now won at least four more Gold Gloves than he's deserved. By any stretch of the fever-crazed imagination. Just to give you...

  11. Yanks' Brian Cashman on fannies, beaches

    Rob Neyer

    Joe Girardi and Brian Cashman on Jeter (and his ilk): On a conference call with reporters, Girardi acknowledged that handling older players like Jeter would be an issue at some point, but he said that he would not rush to judgment based solely on J...

  12. Jeter's next deal won't be about the money

    Rob Neyer

    Reuters talked to a couple of sabermetrically inclined analysts about the sort of money that Derek Jeter's likely to make with his next contract: Jeter could increase his value with an exceptional performance in the remainder of the playoffs, espec...

  13. Ripken wouldn't have done what Jeter did

    Rob Neyer

    Yet another friend -- and yes, I really do have three friends (if just barely) -- writes: Cal Ripken once said that he told base runners to stay on the bag, when an Oriole teammate was planning a hidden ball trick. Junior said that even if a hid...

  14. Indict Baseball rather than Jeter

    Rob Neyer

    I was waiting for a relatively sensitive take on this thing, for me to piggyback on. So I'm grateful to Alex Remington: All the way back in April, I wrote about an incident in which A.J. Pierzynski faked being hit by a pitch and went to first base....

  16. Everybody's comfortable in the Bronx

    Rob Neyer

    Hey, it's only a distraction if you let it distract you. From the New York Post: When Brian Cashman looks at Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera and Joe Girardi, the Yankees' GM paints his shortstop, closer and manager with the same brush. And with s...
