Default Derek Jeter to Retire after 2014 Season

First Mariano, now Derek. How fortunate we all were to be able to watch them play.

Derek Jeter will be a first balot Hall of Fame candidate. He gave us so many wonderful memeories, but most of all he is a class act.

I will sorely miss this great player for his consistent play, and his baseball smarts. Maybe he will become the Yankee manager someday.

I will look fondly on his farewell tour, as he and Mo made a great team. Mo will be sorely missed this year, as he was an all world pitcher and another gentleman, with a lot of class. I have always said the Yankees would have been a 500 team without Mo, even with all that great talent. All those great saves. Hopefully, Robertson can fill his gigantic shoes.

The core four will now be gone.

All products of the Yankee farm system, that produced many championships.
I will miss Mo, Andy Pettite, Jorge Posada and now Derek Jeter.

It is only fair to add Bernie in the mix. Another class act,he was for some reason forgotten about soon after he retired. I agree with everything else said and of the class act Mariano was. Time to turn the pages and wait for the next generation

It may be a long wait.

The caliber of these players will be hard to match. IMHO

Just read a article about Jeter. The reporter put him in the top 5 Yankees of all time. I disagree. The top five have to belong to Babe, Lou, Joltin Joe, Mickey and Yogi. And Whitey might be #6. I would then put Mariano, Jeter, Mattingly and then possibly Munson. Note. Reggie was great but he wasn't a true Yankee. Holy cow! Phil doesn't make the list

Can not disagree with ANY of your posts!

Jeter will be sorely missed.

I still miss Bernie and think he had a couple of years left.

Regarding the "list" - "The Mick" was, and always will be my favorite. Saw him play on many occasions.

GOOD LUCK JETES!!!!

As a life long Red Sox fan I hated to see what Derek Jeter did to my team. But I always respected him and his talents. And yes, unlike A-Rod he was and still is a class act.
I'm sure that like Mariano Riviera he will get a standing ovation when he plays his last game at Fenway.
But Like Tom said, it's time to welcome a new generation.

Said by a. Man whose team had their own legends. Williams, Yaz, Fisk, Rice, Lynn, Duey, Pedro and the best second baseman in the game. dustin Pedroia.

You guys said it all. Here's my dirty little secret. Even though I am a Yankee fan, my favorite non-Yankee was always Yaz. So, right back at ya dr. Winston oboogie!

Right on Barry. During the World Series I sat with a Red Sox fan(Nadick Dan) and rooted for Boston. Rivals, yes. But another great franchise.
