    Good. It does several positive things, it keeps away the running storyline of if he is signing a contract for next year, it allows the Yankees to make plans for the future, it allows Jeter to get a love fest like Mo did (although not quite as guady I hope) and it gives him a chance to retire while still having some skills, avoiding the chance of Jeter playing somewhere else as a part time player a la Knoblauch on the Royals.

    I'm surprised he announced it Mariano style... I thought he'd do it at the end of a season, quietly, with no fanfare.

    Better this way, media won't have to ask him after every game if he's gonna retire. And I remember durring 3k hunt I believe his parents in an interview said they wanted him to step back and take it in. I'm sure they told him to do the same here. After all he's done for this team, he deserves this send off.

    Number 6 greatest Yankee of all time in my book. I remember 1996 like yesterday. Never saw Mantle, Dimaggio, Ruth, Berra or Gehrig but Jeter was our lifetime's equivalent.

    Take a bow Jeter!

    Yeah Jeter is probably tied for 6th greatest Yankee of all-time:

    1. Ruth
    2. Gehring
    3. Dimaggio
    4. Yogi
    5. Mantle
    6. Jeter/Rivera

    Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, Mantle, Yogi, Jeter, Ford, Rivera, Mattingly, Dickey. That's my top 10. Bernie at 11. I'm not counting guys like Reggie or A-Rod. Cano had a chance to crack this list.

    R.A. Dickey never pitched for the Yankees.

    Something to keep in mind.

    With 120 hits in 2014 Jeter would move into the #6 spot all time in hits. Very impressive. Jeter would need 199 hits to get to #5. That's unlikely, but not impossible.

    That list is as good as any. The top 5 is IMO indisputable. Any fan who disagrees is too young or a girl.

    LOL.

    I basically use that same qualifier for any argument I have...except change the "young" to "stupid".

    10 World Series championships for Yogi and he was a war hero.

    Nobody will ever crack the Top 5 Yankees. Those guys are there ad infinitum.

    Name any player in the entire league since 1980 that is worthy??? I can't as I write this although I'm sure there are 2 or maybe 3. Once steroids are discussed, eliminate them. Who is left? Ripken?

    The Mt Rushmore of great Yanks is pretty much locked.
