New York Yankees Hall of Famer Derek Jeter owns a World Series ring for every finger on one hand. #2 is unquestionably one of the greatest champions of all time. But how much did Yankees fans get to know their "Captain"? Jeter has always been a very private and measured person. The Pinstripes faithful struggled to get an inside look at their beloved shortstop. That changes on Monday.
New York and Florida have always seemed to have a strong connection, especially amongst part-time residents of each state. When New York Yankees Hall of Fame shortstop, Derek Jeter became a part-owner and CEO of the Miami Marlins franchise, many thought that connection was perfect for the struggling franchise waiting to take off with new ownership. Many, including myself, were wrong about that.
The final tally of the Baseball Writers Association of America's National Baseball Hall of Fame ballot will come out next Tuesday. On that list is a 'who's who' of Major League Baseball records and accomplishments. The MVP, CY Young and other awards owned by the list of ballot members could sink a ship. However, many of the names that own much of that prestigious hardware are in danger of their time on the Hall of Fame ballot expiring with induction.
The sale of the New York Mets appears to be pretty cut and dry at this point. The Mets and Billionaire Steve Cohen are in exclusive talks to finalize the investment banker buying the team.

He feels like the Mets may have done some shady things to get the bid they wanted from Cohen.
We've been "patiently" waiting for someone... anyone not named Wilpon to own the New York Mets. There have been deals that looked like they were done that fell through and scandals but no sale. Recent news says the Wilpons want to have a sale complete by October to give the league time to bless the deal before the start of 2021. One of the most intriguing bidders are former New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez and his superstar girlfriend Jennifer Lopez. The New York Post is reporting that A-Rod and J-Lo group is adding some big names to help sweeten the offer to own the Mets.
As a die hard Yankee fan the Alex Rodriguez saga is very interesting and his relationship with Derek Jeter is pure drama. There was always rumblings and beliefs of serious tension but I don't know that I've ever seen it all summed up as well as this SB Nation Video sums it up.
It's a long running rumor that many(including me) believe to be fact that Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez do not like each other one bit. This interview on CNBC seems to make the two at least look civil with each other. However it's pretty clear neither of them like CNBC's Bob Pisani...
Alex Rodriguez is back! But in a whole different way. We've seen him on the set of the MLB Playoffs on FOX, but the former 3-time MVP is trying his hand at a different type of role.
Rodriguez is set to host "Back In The Game", a reality TV show that focuses on helping athletes with financial issues get back on their feet with the help of mentors...
