NY Yankees

Four-fifths of the Yankees' rotation went down with injuries, and some of the bats they planned to rely on, like Carlos Beltran and Mark Teixeira, also dealt with lingering issues. Derek Jeter provided plenty of memorable moments in his farewell season, but the Yankees did not fulfill their ultimate goal with a postseason berth.
Derek Jeter's final farewell to baseball consumed the Yankees' last weekend of play, delaying all the usual emotions that come with ending a season before October. Speaking to reporters from his usual perch at Yankee Stadium on Monday, manager Joe Girardi -- still recovering from the excitement of the Captain's exit -- delivered a dose of reality while looking toward a new era in Yankees history.
The last two times that the Yankees finished the regular season without the gates opening for a playoff game, they adhered to what can be called the Steinbrenner playbook: open the checkbooks and chase the biggest fish in free agency, stealing the headlines for the winter.
Derek Jeter walked out of a Fenway Park gate on Sunday afternoon, looking forward to a brave new world of summer barbecues, vacation travel and some choice business opportunities. Several of his Yankees teammates left the building with less certainty.
The fans at Fenway Park were still chanting Derek Jeter's name throughout the ninth inning on Sunday, which tells you all you need to know. He was hours gone from his final game, and by and large they were Red Sox fans, but the love was universal.
The last of the single-digit Yankees is gone now, and so when the team reports to Spring Training next season, uniform No. 11 -- currently issued to Brett Gardner -- will be the lowest one still remaining in circulation. For the first time since 2003, the Yankees are likely to begin their season without an official captain, and they may not have one for quite some time. Derek Jeter's retirement will create a void in the clubhouse, one that manager Joe Girardi believes will take a group effort to fill.
In one of several thoughtful moments over the past several days, Derek Jeter reflected on his storied career and noted that though he shared the field with many athletes who possessed more talent, he believes that no one ever gave more of an effort. With that in mind, Jeter's season-long goodbye ended in fitting fashion on Sunday afternoon, running hard down the first-base line to notch the 3,465th hit of his career. He signaled for a pinch-runner and waved his batting helmet as he left the field, exiting a game that the Yankees went on to win, 9-5.
Derek Jeter said goodbye the way we always figured he might. That is, he did his job. Isn't that the thing that defined him for 20 seasons? When he takes a deep breath and reflects on all of it, he's sure to look back and take pride in always being part of a great whole, a team.
On the last afternoon of his big league career, Derek Jeter received one more sendoff from the Red Sox and several fellow captains of the Boston sports scene, paying their "RE2PECT" prior to the last game of the regular season.
It ended on a high chopper to the left side of the infield, and Derek Jeter ran hard down the first-base line, just as he has done countless times before. He reached safely, without a throw, and then motioned to the dugout that it was time to go. The Yankees' captain legged out an RBI infield single in his final at-bat on Sunday afternoon in the third inning. Jeter completes his career with 3,465 hits, sixth all time, and with a lifetime batting average of .310.
Voting is underway through Sunday exclusively at MLB.com to help decide the 16th annual winners of the Hank Aaron Award, given by "The Hammer" himself during the upcoming 110th World Series to the outstanding offensive performer in each league.
Derek Jeter will put on the Yankees gray road uniform one final time on Sunday morning. He'll do this because, well, you know why. He'll go through all the routines one final time, and at some point, it's sure to hit him that now it is really over.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi confirmed that he addressed the team in a closed-door meeting before Derek Jeter's final Yankee Stadium game Thursday, expressing disappointment that the team has missed the playoffs for a second consecutive season.
Alex Rodriguez's suspension is set to expire at the conclusion of the regular season, and Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Saturday that the organization has started speaking with Rodriguez about how he wound return to the lineup in 2015.
The Red Sox had planned to use the late Bob Sheppard's recorded introduction of Derek Jeter's name for each of his at-bats this weekend at Fenway Park, but at Jeter's request, they will not do so.
Dellin Betances' breakout campaign, which saw him earn selection as an American League All-Star and shatter Mariano Rivera's 1996 franchise record for strikeouts by a reliever, is now complete. Yankees manager Joe Girardi said on Saturday that Betances will not pitch in the team's two remaining games against the Red Sox.
Playing in the penultimate game of his career, Derek Jeter went 1-for-2 with an infield single -- his 3,464th hit -- as the Yankees' designated hitter before leaving for a pinch-hitter in the fifth inning of Saturday afternoon's 10-4 loss to the Red Sox at Fenway. Masahiro Tanaka gave up seven runs (five earned) in just 1 2/3 innings.
Derek Jeter's 20 years were all with the Yankees, all productive, all dramatic enough to leave us with thoughts for future baseball generations: Now what, and who? The answer: Nobody.
Derek Jeter will make a few more trips to home plate this weekend out of respect for this long-standing rivalry, but after his emotional farewell game in the Bronx, he seemed perfectly content to throw on a hooded sweatshirt and watch from the dugout. Though the crowd tried to urge Jeter to grab a bat and pinch-hit, the Yankees' captain remained on the bench as a couple of youthful lineups took their cuts, with New York posting a 3-2 victory over the Red Sox on Friday night at Fenway Park.
The day after his chilling and engrossing finale at Yankee Stadium, Derek Jeter was spent. He was so spent that for the first time in his 20-year career Jeter wanted to sit and that he did in Friday night's opener of a season-closing three-game set against the Red Sox at Fenway Park. That had never happened with any manager, certainly not with Joe Torre, definitely not with Joe Girardi, until Friday night.
While most of the attention was focused on Derek Jeter's goodbye to Yankee Stadium, Andy Pettitte and Hiroki Kuroda were finding a quiet corner in the clubhouse, comparing notes on their own season-ending pitching performances.
Derek Jeter said that he saved the uniform that he used for his final Yankee Stadium game on Thursday, the last time he will wear the pinstripes that have helped define his entire professional life. The actual moment when he took them off is a blur in his mind.
Among the baseball fans around the world who were glued to the broadcast of Derek Jeter's magical Yankee Stadium sendoff was the Commissioner of Major League Baseball. Allan H. "Bud" Selig said he watched the whole game.
The Yankees successfully challenged a safe call in the bottom of the first inning on Friday, with Yoenis Cespedes ruled out after replay review on a tag play at second base.
Derek Jeter couldn't remember ever walking into a manager's office and asking for a day off. It was a request that Joe Girardi certainly has never fielded from him, but after Thursday's Yankee Stadium sendoff, it wasn't surprising that the captain needed time to collect himself physically and emotionally.
Derek Jeter wanted to leave something special about his final game at Yankee Stadium, so even though he decided he will play at some point in Boston, Thursday was his final game at shortstop.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi spent all week saying how he did not want to script Derek Jeter's final moments at Yankee Stadium, knowing that he already had a moment planned out. He did not reveal it, however, because he did not want Jeter to find out.
With the curtain having fallen on Derek Jeter's career -- at least at Yankee Stadium on Thursday night -- there's not much dispute about where he stands on the list of all-time Yankee great position players: Pretty darned high.
Seconds after Derek Jeter won his final home game with a walk-off single, family, friends and former teammates were waiting on the field to congratulate the retiring legend.
After choking back tears for nine innings on his last night wearing pinstripes, Derek Jeter stamped an exclamation point on the end of his New York career, slashing an opposite-field walk-off single in the ninth that lifted the Yankees to a 6-5 victory over the Orioles on Thursday at Yankee Stadium.

NY Mets

The Mets have no grand plans to change much over the winter. When pitchers and catchers report to Port St. Lucie, Fla., four and a half months from now, the roster will not look markedly different from the one that populated Citi Field last Sunday. But the Mets have reason to believe that with even modest improvements, they can be significantly better.
When Matt Harvey decided to undergo Tommy John surgery last October, a bit of optimism leaked out of the Mets' 2014 season. The Mets still genuinely believed they could achieve a playoff berth -- that's why general manager Sandy Alderson originally brought up the topic of 90 wins as a benchmark. But even with the seasons of Jacob deGrom and Jeurys Familia, the Mets fell short.
In the bottom of the eighth inning on Sunday, Lucas Duda walloped a changeup from Michael Foltynewicz into the right-center-field bullpen, his 30th home run of the season, to score Daniel Murphy and solidify the Mets' 8-3 victory over the Astros. That capped off a two-hit day that included a two-run double in the fifth, giving him 92 RBIs for the year.
Bartolo Colon's six innings of three-run ball made him a 15-game winner at age 41, and Lucas Duda's career-high 89th and 90th RBIs put the Mets ahead for good, before his 30th homer iced the Mets' 8-3 victory on Sunday afternoon at Citi Field.
It was a moment 18 years and 2,425 games in the making. In the fifth inning Sunday afternoon at Citi Field, with a line-drive single to left, Bobby Abreu recorded his final big league hit. He waved his batting helmet to acknowledge a standing ovation from the fans at Citi Field and received the ball he hit before departing for a pinch-runner.
Bartolo Colon completed his eighth season of at least 200 innings and his eighth with at least 15 wins with the Mets' 8-3 victory on Sunday. And he did it all at age 41.
Voting is underway through Sunday exclusively at MLB.com to help decide the 16th annual winners of the Hank Aaron Award, given by "The Hammer" himself during the upcoming 110th World Series to the outstanding offensive performer in each league.
Lucas Duda waited until the Mets were down to their last out to put his team ahead, his two-run home run off the foul pole in right field giving New York a dramatic 2-1 win over the Astros on Saturday night.

Handshakes and hugs awaited Collin McHugh when the Mets'-turned Astros' pitcher showed up at Citi Field this weekend, having just completed a breakout rookie season. Rising through the Minors alongside Zack Wheeler, Jacob deGrom and others, McHugh debuted at Citi in 2012 but struggled. The Mets later traded him to the Rockies, who ultimately designated him for assignment.
Jacob deGrom may not be the only Mets player to garner National League Rookie of the Year votes. Though reliever Jeurys Familia earned his first taste of the big leagues in 2012, he did not pitch enough innings in '12 or '13 to expend his rookie eligibility. That means his 2.27 ERA in 75 1/3 innings entering Saturday's play -- plus five saves -- makes him a prime candidate at least to receive some mention on the ballot.
