Suggested Titles for Derek Jeter's New Book Imprint

From The New York Times this morning:

Derek Jeter, nearing the final act of a storied athletic career, is ready to talk about his life after baseball. He wants to be a book publisher.

On Thursday, Jeter, the Yankees’ shortstop and captain, announced that he would start a publishing imprint, Jeter Publishing, a partnership with Simon & Schuster. Saying he had thought a lot about his future while recovering from injuries last season, he portrayed the move as a way to explore a project that combines his interests in business and in books, film and TV.

Here are a few titles that I, a poor writer, humbly submit to the future Hall-of-Famer:

  • “1,001 Reasons Why the Yankees Suck
  • “Advanced Sabermetrics and the Most Overrated Fielders in Baseball History”
  • “Four Days in October: The unprecedented comeback of the 2004 Red Sox”
  • “The Curse of Big Papi: Why the Yankee are doomed for a generation”
  • “A Short Bloop Over the Shortstop's Head, and Other Great Comebacks in World Series History”
  • They're Not Just Singles, They're Leadership: Derek Jeter's Home-to-First Legacy”
  • “Glory Days and Desperate Measures: What professional athletes stoop to after the cheering stops”

“You never know where this may go,” Jeter said. “You look at all the opportunities that come with content in general; I mean, there might be a compelling story that someone has that turns into a film or a TV show.”
