So Maddux isn't going into the HoF as a Brave. Interesting choice.


To clarify, he's not going in as anything.


"My wife Kathy and I grew up in baseball in Chicago, and then we had just an amazing experience in Atlanta with the Braves. It's impossible for me to choose one of those teams for my Hall of Fame plaque, as the fans of both clubs in each of those cities were so wonderful. I can't think of having my Hall of Fame induction without support of both of those fan bases, so, for that reason, the cap on my Hall of Fame plaque will not feature a logo."





I get that people here are a little upset about it.  Certainly his prime HOF years were in Atl, and he will always be a Brave.  But he came up with the Cubs, went back there later in his career, and currently works in their front office.  I understand the attachment to that organization too.

A Japan Airlines Boeing 787 Dreamliner, capable of carrying nearly 200 people up to 7,850 nautical miles, touched down at Kennedy International Airport on Sunday afternoon with only six passengers, including an ace pitcher, his pop star wife, a personal manager and a toy poodle named Haru.
The unusual flight manifest was not a joke, but the grand entrance of Masahiro Tanaka, the Yankees’ flamboyant Japanese pitcher who put his newfound dollars to immediate use.
Eager to avoid a snowstorm and arrive in New York in time for his introductory news conference Tuesday, Tanaka rented the plane from JAL for an estimated $200,000. Not even Reggie Jackson made such a colorful entrance to New York when he signed as a free agent with the Yankees in November 1976.

My Captain, my Captain.


How ppl seriously dislike Jeter (outside of him playing for NYY) is crazy to me. The very definition of a professional

Also, I love when athletes realize it's time to go before it's too late. 


Posada stayed too long. There were times when I thought Mo stayed too long as well.


Jeter knows that the team has to find his real replacement soon and is giving them a headstart

Maybe he should wait 2+ years like Biggio. They have the same stats.


And Biggio didn't win his silver slugger awards because his team bought the best player at his position and then moved him over!  :P


Of course I'm doing shtick. Jeter is a first ballot lock.

As Yankees go, he's not very hateable at all. 


First ballot lock no question.  He's earned the farewell tour

His 3300+ hits while never being suspected of performance enhancing makes him a sure lock.


That said, the stories about the gift baskets with autographed memorabilia for his one nights stands (for the morning after) make him legendary.  Especially when it's the same damn stuff again to girls he forgets he has been with.
