- I thought it was a really nice moment when Derek Jeter was surrounded by his teammates after he broke the all-time Yankees hits record. I rewound it a bunch of times on the DVR. It was one of the coolest clipsof the year, to be sure.
- One thing we really take for granted with Jeter is how he has never "embarrassed the stripes," as Steve Lombardi of Was Watching would phrase it. Sure, one could say that (putting on Chris Rock voice) you're supposed to stay out of trouble. What do you want, a cookie? But many young players facing the temptations in this town get entangled in some sort of mayhem at least once. Jeter never has.
- I wrote something for the site Baseball Reflections about how the Yankees did last month. Of course, it was before A.J. Burnett spit the bit yesterday (as you'll understand why I mention this now when you read it!)
- I'm redoing the Subway Squawkers site - please be patient if it's a bit buggy! Many thanks to Squawker reader Cindy for the cool logo!
