If you love Don Mattingly and Derek Jeter as much as I do, you are going to love this scoop from Andrew Marchand of the New York Post. Put it this way, when the Yankees lost in the post season, I was calling for Aaron Boone's head, and many wanted Cashman gone too.  Of course, the timing was right because it was announced around the same time that Mattingly wouldn't be back in Miami and Jeter, of course, had already left that franchise. So... it appeared that things could really happen when it came to replacing those dudes.  But we all knew in the back of our minds that it wouldn't happen, and it didn't.  But this news is great and if true, would really be spectacular to spicing up the Yankee franchise after another season of losing.

Marchand writes:

"As YES begins constructing its broadcast lineup for next year, it has discussed the possibility of making an attempt for two of the greatest and most popular Yankees in the team’s history – Derek Jeter and Don Mattingly.

“You don’t say no to Derek Jeter and Don Mattingly, if there is a place for them in your universe, you find a way to make it work,” YES president of programming and production John Filippelli told The Post when asked about the potential plans. “We haven’t had any in-depth discussion with either. If they are A) available and B) interested, you probably at least have to have a conversation.”

Now I am a gigantic fan of Filippelli as well. What he built over there at the YES Network is amazing.  Of course, I am also huge fans of Bob Lorenz and Jack Curry too so if there is a way to add Donnie and Derek, I will be overwhelmingly thrilled.

Well, we shall see. It's always fun to dream. This would juice this brand 1000% for us Yankee fans. I hope things happen.
