The San Francisco Giants have made it public that they are in contact with Derek Jeter's agent.
No one really believes that Jeter would go anywhere other than the Yanks right? But crazyier things have happened - and here's my case for a deal:
1) Jeter is losing the PR battle with his purpoted $$$ demands
2) San Fran is a defending World Series Champ, and they have an opening at SS
3) They are managed by a highly respected, Torre'esque manager in Bruce Bochy who has been to WS multiple times, with multiple teams
4) Minka Kelly resides in the West Coast for the majority of the year
5) This would be his ultimate payback to Cashman and the Steinbrenners for firing Torre
So - what do you think? Am I crazy or is it so crazy that it is sane??? (apologies to Kramer)
Ron Washington should have won manager of the year. The Twins manager did what he's always done, nothing special - the Rangers had their special season, and Washington should have been rewarded as such.
I feel bad for the Bills. And while the G-Men are my blood - I'm starting to gain respect for how scrappy this team is playing, and I love the bluce collar fight in the QB Fitzpatrick.
Yanks should sign Rivera to a life time deal. 1 year base, incentive laden, with annual renew in perpetuity
