  1. Wow mike d ….here we are in late July and Jeter is still hot….8/25 in last 7 days…..fantastic.

  2. Fish ….remember when TO Chris on iyankees was saying we should get Carl Crawford because Brett Gardner was not a starting OFer? Good thing that never happened.

    • Yes, I recall. Imagine how hamstrung they’d be financially with Crawford’s deal on the books for the next 5+ years @ $100M+. Gardner totally outplayed Crawford last year for $500,000.
