Musings From the Bench

                You know what I like about baseball? Nothing. And let me tell you why. (Mr. Met,, “Right in the feels.”)   1. The slow pace. Games go on forever with some innings lasting longer than some marriages. The longest recorded game in regulation play was 4 hours …

I submit for your perusal three player’s statistics. For player number one I threw out his first and last years, since, they essentially amounted to almost nothing and would do nothing except diminish his most relevant numbers.

BREAKING NEWS: Derek Jeter

Derek Jeter has announced his retirement on his official Facebook page. Keep in mind he is 40, and has been having problems with injuries the past few years- He does state he wants to start a family. Interesting. No official reaction from the Yankees as I have found, but I have to think a few …
