  • Quotes

    • Derek: (On former teammate Shane Spencer) The guy's ridiculous. No one hits home runs like that. I'm telling you, man, it's ridiculous.

    • Derek: We just want to win. That's the bottom line. I think a lot of times people may become content with one championship or a little bit of success, but we don't really reflect on what we've done in the past. We focus on the present.

    • Derek: You forget about it whether it was 15-2 or 3-2. It's still a loss. It doesn't matter what the score was if we win tomorrow.

    • Derek: You gotta have fun. Regardless of how you look at it, we're playing a game. It's a business, it's our job, but I don't think you can do well unless you're having fun.

    • Derek: There may be people who have more talent than you, but there's no excuse for anyone to work harder than you do--and I believe that.

    • Derek: My dad had been shortstop when he was in college, and you know, when you're a kid, you want to be just like your dad.

    • Derek: If you're going to play at all, you're out to win. Baseball, board games, playing Jeopardy, I hate to lose.

    • Derek: I think everyone is ticklish. You just gotta find the right spots.

    • Derek: I like to dance and sing when there's no one around, but, if I'm out, I'm really shy about it. So it takes a lot to get me going, but I enjoy being around music.

    • Derek: I have the greatest job in the world. Only one person can have it. You have shortstops on other teams--I'm not knocking other teams--but there's only one shortstop on the Yankees.

    • Derek: Yankee Stadium is my favorite stadium I'm not going to lie to you. There's a certain feel you get in Yankee Stadium.

    • Derek: My heroes, my dreams, and my future lie in Yankee Stadium and they can't take that from me.

    • Derek: (On wearing a Yankees jersey) God, I hope I wear this jersey forever.
