MLB Bullets Walks Off

Derek Jeter went out of Yankee Stadium in style. Phil Hughes set a record, but didn't get his bonus. The Snakes have a new GM. A quick look ahead to the playoffs.

I can't make Bullets a Derek Jeter-free zone because he is the big story today. But unless you just woke up from a coma, you already know that Jeter played his last game at Yankee Stadium last night and he won the game on a walkoff single in the bottom of the ninth. And if you're a regular reader of this column, you've no doubt read enough commentary on Derek Jeter to last a lifetime.  So I'm going to keep the Jeter stuff to a minimum, which means there still is going to be a lot of Jeter. I could have just made this column all about Jeter.

Coming into the last weekend of the year, we pretty much know who is in the playoffs and who is going to play whom. While the Mariners could still sneak in, in reality, all that is likely left to be decided is where the wild card games are going to be played.

And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster.
