Derek Jeter 'Not Going' to Yankees-Marlins Series in NY

Derek Jeter 'Not Going' to Yankees-Marlins Series in NY

Harper connected for a solo drive in the first inning off Jacob deGrom, who struck out 12 in 7 1/3 innings, the longest outing by a Mets pitcher this season. They have dropped nine of their last 11 games heading into a road trip through New York, Milwaukee, and Los Angeles.

"I went to a spring training game when we played NY, but it would be an awkward situation for me to actually go to Yankee Stadium", Jeter said, according to ESPN.

"I don't think there is any insane bad blood besides what you guys stirred up", Stanton told reporters over the weekend during the Yankees' series in Detroit, referring to the reports that the Marlins threatened to keep him during their rebuilding process if he didn't accept proposed trades to the Giants or Cardinals.

"I'm just being honest with you guys, so that's why I'm not going", he said.

"I felt like I could have kept going".

"I thought the focus to start off this homestand after a couple of bad weather days was really strong", said Yankees manager Aaron Boone, whose team withstood two rainouts in Detroit following an 8-6 win on Friday. "So, I will not be there".

Given Marlins Man's recent crusade against Jeter, we're going to guess he was sending a message to the former Yankees star: You can't stop Marlins Man from showing up, especially in your former stomping grounds. He has taken heat for trading and releasing popular players over the offseason and making moves with the front office that weren't popular with the fan base in South Florida. The Marlins are 4-9 this season.

"I like the grit, the fight the team has shown".




Judge's home run, which came on the one-year anniversary of that stupid triple, extended his Major League Baseball best hitting streak to 12 games. "We have to win some more games". Sometimes it takes a little time. No one is happy with the results.

Nick Vincent and Juan Nicasio got the ball to closer Edwin Diaz, and he pitched a scoreless ninth for his AL-leading seventh save.

Stanton went 0 for 3 with two strikeouts, a bases-loaded foulout, a walk and was hit by a pitch. Shuck had been recalled from Triple-A New Orleans prior to the game.

Justin Bour hit a pinch-two-run homer and has four homers in his last five games after going the first 10 games without a homer. Miami's Opening Day right fielder, Cooper has a partial tear of his right wrist tendon sheath, and likely won't be back until around July. He is 6 for 17 with a double, triple, three runs batted in and five strikeouts in four games. I think he wanted to enjoy his time off, which he did, and now he's an owner and he's even more busy.

Before becoming an owner last August, Jeter was living full-time in Tampa, the spring home of the Yankees. I like the approach.

Attention, insane people who say there's no such thing as a must-win game in April.

Jeter first indicated this would be his stance back in February. Wei-Yin Chen has thrown without discomfort in his elbow that has been a problem since last season.

Miami's struggling offense is hopeful of getting a lift when catcher J.T. Realmuto is expected to be activated from the disabled list. The Yankees depantsed the Marlins in the series opener Monday, winning 12-1.
