Derek Jeter is getting married

I suppose this means that Tim McCarver will have to stop writing “Mrs. Derek Jeter” over and over again in his notebook:

After months of speculation that the Yankees’ hunk and his sexy
steady Minka Kelly are headed to the altar, The Post has learned that
the super couple may have settled on a wedding date — Nov. 5.

November 5th, eh? So I guess the champagne shower the Yankees should be favored to be taking earlier that week can double as a bachelor party.  My favorite bit from the story is this, however:

After getting a tip about the upcoming nuptials, The Post confirmed the
date by spotting a curious entry in the official calendar at the ritzy
reception palace Oheka Castle in Huntington, LI, for the first Friday
in November that read simply “JETER wedding.”

Uh-oh. Now that he knows where it is, I lay even odds on McCarver driving like mad to get to the ceremony, busting in, fighting off the families by ripping the cross off the wall, barricading the door, and then escaping with Jeter onto a waiting bus and donning ambiguous facial expressions as they drive away to some Simon and Garfunkel song.

Red Sox re-sign Mitch Moreland to two-year deal

The Red Sox have re-signed first baseman Mitch Moreland to a two-year contract, the club announced on Monday. According to Evan Drellich of NBC Sports Boston, the total value of the deal is $13 million and Moreland can earn more through performance incentives.

Moreland, 32, hit .246/.326/.443 with 22 home runs and 79 RBI in 576 plate appearances with the Red Sox in 2017. With Moreland back in the fold, the Red Sox are out of the running for free agent Eric Hosmer.

While Moreland doesn’t have the best bat among first basemen, he plays good defense. His return also means the Red Sox can safely stow Hanley Ramirez back in the DH role.
