ANALYSIS SB NATION MLB DESIGNATED COLUMNISTS Boston, Give Nick Swisher A Second Chance 167 By Steven Goldman on Nov 15, 6:01am

Is nothing sacred? Please bring back PSA

Main Yankees Focus on Re-Signing Vets

Some news and notes you probably have already inferred from the general direction of things and the way players keep signing with other teams. This year, Reggie Jackson is staying in Baltimore.

David Cone says Yankees not in the free agent game

Over at SBN's New York desk, Ed Valentine parses David Cone's comments on the Yankees withdrawal from the free agent market. In the long term, that's not such a bad thing. In the short term, it's going to be painful.

Another Prediction of Jeter Doom

13

MLB injury news has a history-based take on Derek Jeter's future. I'm reminded of something that Casey Stengel once said around the age of 80. Asked how he thought the future would be, he said "short." I think it was Casey, anyway. Maybe it was Groucho Marx. Or Charlie Brown. Anyway, the problem with saying that there have been few players able to play shortstop successfully at Jeter's age is that the Yankees don't care if Jeter can play the position successfully. He'll be a shortstop as long as they say he's a shortstop. Ability doesn't enter into it.

Why three strikes? and effect has this arbitrary baseball rule had on the criminal justice system?

Marlins tap Tino as hitting coach

16

The Miami Marlins and rookie manager Mike Redmond--former Yankee dynasty first baseman Tino Martinez. It's probably not a bad hire since Tino was always a patient and dangerous hitter at the plate, so he probably knows a thing or two about the craft. Best of luck.
