I'm calling an audible. Yesterday, I wrote about Jeter's career and place in Yankees' history. To end that post, I said I would write today on other teams best players numbered 1-10. I'm still interested in writing that, but it's coming Monday now. The reason is twofold: 1) I wanted to write about Derek Jeter more and 2) I haven't decided if I'm giving the Cubs #1 jersey retirement to Doug Glanville, Augie Ojeda, or Kosuke Fukudome.
Derek Jeter is a super cool dude. He had swag before we came up with the word. To honor his coolness, here are the five best walk-up songs he used in game action—as decided by me. To honor Jeter in his last home game, each Yankees hitter picked one of his walk-ups.

Jeter: "Puffy used to give me songs before they even came out so I could use them when I walked up to the plate"

Baseball is here! And more importantly, that means the over/under game is back. It seems as though everyone is an expert this time of year. Somehow we convince ourselves that we are better at predicting baseball outcomes than everyone else. Well, AFITB is putting that to the test for the third year in a row. Think you know more about baseball than us? You probably do. But go ahead and prove it anyway.
Baseball is simply the best.
Can the playoffs get even better? Yes, if you play this game with us.
