    Tom Verducci’s 10 most powerful people in baseball:

    1. Bud Selig, MLB Commissioner

    2. Mark Walter, Chairman, Los Angeles Dodgers

    3. Scott Boras, player agent

    4. Bob Bowman, Chief Executive Officer, MLB Advanced Media

    5. Michael Weiner, MLBPA Executive Director

    6. Rob Manfred, MLB Executive Vice President, Economics and League Affairs

    7. Derek Jeter, shortstop, New York Yankees

    8. Tim Brosnan, MLB Executive Vice President, Business

    9. Mike Trout, outfielder, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim/Bryce Harper, outfielder, Washington Nationals

    10. Hal Steinbrenner, General Partner, New York Yankees

    Tommy said that Jeter “came to the plate more times than anybody in the history of the game from age 36 on.” And, that’s true in 2012. But, who’s record did he break? That would be the then 36-year old Derek Jeter in 2010.  Now, a 39-year old Pete Rose came to the plate 739 times in 1980.  Can a 39-year old Jeter top that number in 2013?  What do you think?
