Cashman forced to pay Dan Connolly Baltimore Sun Brian Cashman, but it doesn't matter. Because Derek Jeter is more valuable to the Yankees than to anyone else, and they'll eventually have to pay him close to what he wants. The Orioles faced a similar dilemma with Cal Ripken Jr. , when he approached his final contract. There is no way they could have let him finish his career elsewhere. Jeter will be 37 in June and his skills are declining.

Down for the count Dom Amore Hartford Courant It's always dangerous to count the Yankees out — except right now. They're one blow from being out cold, and Justin Verlander is winding up for a haymaker. These Yankees are old, and one-dimensional.

This is probably a little too "inside baseball" for many of you, but the Orioles canceled their workout for today at Yankee Stadium. The Yankees had already stated that they weren't going to have a practice, due to train cancelations between Baltimore and New York. The media will talk to the managers and Wednesday's starting pitcher via a conference call. The teams didn't get into New York City until early Tuesday morning. Due to the train issues, the Orioles had to take a bus to New York City, and they didn't arrive until around 8:30 a.m. Both sides are apparently going to get some rest and do "battle" again Wednesday as Yankees' captain Derek Jeter referred to this series Monday.

Smart baseball Phil Rogers Chicago Tribune Give Derek Jeter an Oscar. And extra MVP consideration. Derek Jeter was once again instinctually brilliant when he faked getting hit with that Chad Qualls pitch in the seventh inning on Wednesday night against the Rays. It was a case of bad umpiring and very, very smart baseball. The Yankees were trailing 2-1, so getting on base was Jeter's priority. When the pitch hit the knob of his bat, he immediately acted as if the pitch hit him and he was in pain, and umpire Lance Barksdale bought it, sending him to first.
