Astros' @Collin_McHugh in 9 starts in August and September: 6-0, 1.50. Opponents slugging .273.
How many swings has Jeter taken in his career? He helped us figure it out. What's your guess?

Love this from @JohnBranchNYT RT I wrote about why Oregon's Duck looks like Donald and doesn't wear pants.
Extra Bases: Stumbling Oakland A's; John Holdzkom's Improbable Rise; A New World Series Schedule…
Cleveland lost, yes. But Jason Giambi, wearing #72, just scored from first on a double. Once the Big G gets going, there's no stopping him.
Not being snarky, just curious: why do Jon Lester and James Shields not rank among AL top 10 in pitchers' WAR? Where do they fall short?

The 1984 World Series, when the Padres played great once their bullpen was in the games.

On Baseball: Celebrating Glory, With Little Hope to Add to It
Can't hear what Cano is saying to Jeter on the scoreboard because there's too much booing.
So far of all the people to give scoreboard tributes to Jeter, the only one to call him "DJ" is Billy Crystal. They must be best friends.
Now some guy who hit .202 in Double-A back in the '90s is on the field.
"Not only did it resonate nationally, it resonated all the way into space." -- John Sterling on the RE2PECT ad. Now astronauts are saluting.
The Royals are now leaving their dugout to stand on field and applaud/take photos of Jeter.
One truly underrated part of Jeter's greatness is his bat flip (violent sideways toss, actually) after HRs. I know @BattingStanceG agrees.
Huge ovation for the great Hideki Matsui.
All of the KC Royals watching Jeter ceremony from the top step of their dugout.
All of the MLB team flags on top of Yankee Stadium have been replaced by Jeter #2 flags.

Sharp analysis here on the Diamondbacks from @nickpiecoro, one of the best beat writers in the business.…
Sincerely hope for the best for Ron Washington, one of the good guys in the game.

Josh Outman, who wears high-cut stirrups the way every ballplayer should, now in to pitch for the Yankees.

Nice job by @RealMichaelKay calling that bunt single by McCann immediately before it happened.
Please indulge me on this: Antoan Richardson will be the first @VandyBaseball alum to play for the Yankees since Scott Sanderson in 1992.
Loyal to the Royals, and Hoping for a Renaissance at Last

ICYMI, @TimRohan with a great feature from Las Vegas on Noah Syndergaard and his AAA pitching coach, Frank Viola
Great story by @benshpigel: A trip to Cold Spring, Minn., for a long look at its most famous export, Eric Decker:
KC, which has always been home to great baseball writers, is lucky to have @mellinger and @McCulloughStar. Must-reads for the pennant race.
In final AB of game, Kratz nearly hits 2 walk-off HRs, tries to take 1st on non-HBP and tries to take 1st on non-ball-4. So close. CLE wins.
Lorenzo Cain is really fun to watch.
'70s scoreboard graphics too here in KC.
And while we're talking KC uni details, Alex Gordon wore this hat every day from spring till end of 2012 reg season.
Royals take the field on Retro Night in KC. All nine players have high socks and/or stirrups. This is so beautiful I may tear up.

It always makes me laugh when Miguel Cabrera checks with the first base ump after checking his swing.
With Jeter presumably playing final game in Michigan, here's story from a day spent in Kalamazoo with him in 1997.…
