Aiyyo! Who can test I, the true King of New York? Well ever since Big Boy died from Bed-Stuy I’ve been, controllin the street, holdin the heat. -Fat Joe
Public Service Announcement: I really don’t like to write this one. Rather go on a hunger strike than write this one. Off a cliff with my mountain bike than write this one. But alas, write this one I must. I have to give credit where credit is due. Credit is now due to one Derek Sanderson Jeter. The King of New York. The King is dead! Long live the King! The hit king that is. You all know by now that New York Yankees shortstop, Derek Jeter, passed Babe Ruth on the all-time hits list with an RBI single in the second inning of a 7-2 win over my beloved Boston Red Sox on Sunday night. Hooray Derek Jeter! But did you know that yesterday, while recording the 2,876th hit of his career with a single in the fifth inning in the Yankees’ 2-1 loss to the Red Sox, he tied Mel Ott for the most career hits for any player while playing for a New York team. O is for Ott of the restless right foot. When he leaned on the pellet, the pellet stayed put. Huh? Didja? Well, like Bell Biv DeVoe, now you know.

Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! I’ve given grief to dear old Alex Rodriguez as much as the next guy. Probably more than the next guy. Not no more. Not with what this guy is done doing. Read More »

You heard about the legend of Jesse James, John Henry just to mention some names. But there’s a truck driving legend in the south today, a man called Bandit from Atlanta G.A.. -Jerry Reed
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! I hate to do this one. Destroys my physiological state to do this one. No, it doesn’t feel so great to do this one. But do this one I shall. I am bigger than that. I am like Buddha: “It is a man’s own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways.” So I will give credit where credit is due. Credit is due to one Derek Sanderson Jeter. Credit is due to the Captain. O Captain my Captain! Our fearful trip is done. The ship has weathered every rack, the prize we sought is won. No, nothing is done. No, the prize has not yet been won. But if Derek Jeter has anything to say it about it, things will be done. Things will be won. Read More »

No one loves you and you know it. Don’t pretend that you enjoy it and you don’t care. ‘Cause now I wouldn’t lie or tell you all the things you want to hear. ‘Cuz I hate you, ‘cuz I hate you, ‘cuz I hate you, ‘cuz I hate you. -Green Day
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Well, all day long at school I hear how great Jeter is at this or how wonderful Jeter did that! Jeter! Jeter! Jeter! Reach-arounds for everybody. I hate it. I don’t care that Derek Jeter went 3-for-4 last night. I don’t care that his third hit tied him with Lou Gehrig for the most career hits in Yankees history. I don’t care that Jeter said after the game that he didn’t know what to do when he matched Gehrig’s total because New York was losing at the time. Big deal. I don’t care what they say about us anyway. I don’t care ’bout that. I still hate Derek Jeter. Read More »

I don’t wanna be a chicken. I don’t wanna be a duck. So I shave my butt. -The Chicken Dance
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Derek Jeter owes Roy Halladay a no-hitter. Everybody knows Derek Jeter. Why, he’s the meanest, toughest, rip-roaringest, Edward-Everett-Hortonest hombre whatever packed a six-shooter. Right? Right? Wrong. Remember back in 1941? Remember back in 1941, Ted Williams entered the last day of the season with a batting average of .39955 which would have been rounded up to .400, making him the first man to hit .400 since Bill Terry? Manager Joe Cronin left the decision whether to play up to Teddy Ballgame. Remember Williams opted to play in both games of the day’s doubleheader and risk falling short, explaining that “if I can’t hit .400 all the way, I don’t deserve it.” Last night, Derek Jeter did the exact opposite of that.
Derek Jeter, batting .415 over his last 23 games, was absent from the Yankees lineup against Roy Halladay last night. Wanna know why? Huh? Do ya? I’ll tell you why. I’ll tell you Doc Hallady owns Derek Jeter like Charlsetown owns the Chiefs. I’ll tell you Halladay has struck Jeter out 24 times over the course of their careers. I’ll tell you that’s the second-highest strikeout total by one active major leaguer against another. I’ll tell you Jeter’s a big fat chicken. His replacement at shortstop, Ramiro Pena, had the only hit off Doc, a sixth-inning double. If Jeter just manned up like he had a pair, Doc would have gotten that no-hitter. Nobody likes a chicken.

Nobody ever won a pennant without a star shortstop. -Leo Durocher
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! If there is one guy in baseball I hate above all the others, it is Derek Jeter. Derek Jeter is the face of all that is wrong with this world. He is the face of evil. He is the face of the New York Yankees. But I must give credit where credit is due. I must give credit even if it makes me sicker than the Asiatic Flu. Even if it makes me jumpier than a giant kangaroo.
Last night, Derek Jeter had three hits. Last night Derek Jeter passed Luis Aparicio (2673) as the all-time leader in hits as a shortstop (2675). Hooray Derek Jeter! Of course, some major-leaguers who played the majority of their careers at shortstop accumulated more total hits than Jeter. Of course there was Honus Wagner. Of course there was Cal Ripken. Of course there was Robin Yount and Luke Appling. But each of those men collected a significant amount of their hits while playing other positions. All but 13 of Jeter’s career hits have come as a shortstop. Happy now?

Almost 2000 and running out of time. Almost to the point when I wanna bust nines. A lot of strange faces, I can only trust mine. Soldiers in position all on the front line. -P-Diddy
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Geez, what is this world coming to? Another day, another Yankees reach-around post? I have to do this. I have to have the goddam common courtesy to give Derek Jeter a reach-around. As we all know, yesterday, Derek Jeter played his 2,000th major-league game. But did you know his 2,553 career hits are the most through 2000 games since Tony Gwynn reached the 2K mark with 2,645 hits in 1997. Did you know Jeter’s total is two more than Wade Boggs’s 2000-game mark. Did you know it’s thirty-three more than that of Pete Rose. Well like Bel Biv Devoe, now you know.
