Derek Jeter is certainly enjoying the early days of his retirement. He launched a new website, as I’ve chronicled here on SwollenDome.com, and has taken to the streets of New York. On Thursday, Jeter visited Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show.” He signed a few autographs (the “I need to retire” jokes are getting old) […]
On Tuesday night, America will be introduced to the next wave of heroes in the Major League Baseball All-Star Game on FOX. The Home Run Derby on Monday night featured up-and-coming players such as Yasiel Puig, Yeonis Cespedes and Giancarlo Stanton. I would have liked to have seen Mike Trout (his manager held him out) […]
The Derek Jeter farewell tour continued this week in Seattle, and naturally there had to be a gift bestowed upon the future Hall of Famer. Jeter received a gift from his former double play partner Robinson Cano, who presented him with a $34,000 watch. The watch was of the Jay-Z Hublot line.
On Wednesday night, the Astros celebrated the lengthy career of future Hall of Famer Derek Jeter of the Yankees. His former teammates, Roger Clemens and Andy Pettitte, were in attendance as the Astros presented the first gifts of the tour. And they’re memorable … OK, so the first of the gifts goes to the overall […]

Harmon returns to the microphone with a bevy of quick-hits across the sporting and entertainment worlds. There were three big injuries in the NFL out of the gate, with Jeremy Maclin, Dennis Pitta and Dan Koppen being lost for the season. The Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown celebrated this year’s induction ceremony, but crowds […]
Harmon’s Blog 7.12 runs through the world of fantasy baseball and Major League Baseball box scores. He knowingly nods to those who watched SharkNado and talks injuries and adult diapers. Yeah, Harmon’s got a little bit for everyone. Baltimore first baseman Chris Davis went 1-for-3 with his major league-leading 34th home run in Thursday’s 3-1 […]
All-Star Chris Sale of the White Sox was bested by Matt Moore, a 12-game winner who was left off the squad, over the weekend. Sale has received a whopping total of 31 runs of support in 16 starts this season. Rockies starter Roy Oswalt left his weekend outing with a strained hamstring. The veteran hurler […]
David Price inked a deal with Steiner Sports to sign autographed photos and balls in connection with the DJ/3K campaign. Price was the unfortunate victim who served up hit number 3,000 to Derek Jeter and began the whole Christian Lopez debacle. He’s decided to make some lemonade and beef up the 401K by autographing photos […]
I knew that would grab your attention. Obviously, I haven’t gotten the call as a replacement player. But, if we were another day or two out, it just might come down to lottery tickets. As the countdown clock winds down to the red carpet pre-game festivities, it seems that the “honor” of playing in the […]
What would you have done? By now, you’re well aware that Derek Jeter collected his 3,000th career hit on Saturday against the Rays. It was the second hit in Jeter’s 5-for-5 performance, a home run off of David Price launched in the third inning. The montages of Jeter’s milestone hits have no doubt been played […]
Jeter, batting out of the leadoff spot, homered in his second at-bat against David Price to reach the hallowed milestone. Jeter singled in the first inning to notch hit 2,999 and wasted no time getting to the finish line. It was his third home run of the season. Now, there had obviously been a lot […]
Unless you’ve abandoned Major League Baseball in search of the summer sun, vacations, and rest before the start of the NCAA and NFL seasons, you know that Derek Jeter is creeping to 3,000 hits. He’s a polarizing figure, of course, as “The Captain” of this New York ship. It just comes with the territory. Respect. […]
