ESPN Mocks Derek Jeter

David Schoenfield, an ESPN blogger, has a piece up about the Yankees and that they are a really good team. I hate to toot my own horn and I hate even more to be right about this, but I warned you all right here that these Yankees were much better than the credit they were getting from the so-called experts. How good are they? Well they have the 4th best run differential in baseball while playing the third toughest schedule. That combination makes them the best overall team in MLB up to this point if you use the Simple Rating System or SRS.

It is what Schoenfield says at the end of his piece that caught my eye:

Back in April, Derek Jeter said of baseball, "I don't miss it at all."

After last year's worldwide retirement tour, nobody is missing Jeter, either -- least of all, his former team.

Well played David, well played.
