Like I said, just one man's opinion. If he knows he isn't the player he was and wants to move on with his life, what is the point of a farewell tour? This is when athletes think they are bigger than the team, he knows this season will be all about him, not about the Yankees.

Nic - I guess you and I see two different views of his retirement announcement. I don't see it as he doesn't want to train at the highest caliber any longer, I see it as he has come to realize he isn't able to, as well as he has also achieved all of his goals he set out to reach. Win Win for him but a huge loss for Us the Fans. He will be missed and Yes LCC - he always kept himself out of the BS.....but I sure would like to give him a going away gift!

I agree Jaycee, all athletes should retire when they come to realize "it's time". I just think it is selfish for any athlete to basically admit he no longer has the drive to train at the highest level but wants one more season just so he can tour the country getting accolades. I like the guy but this is beneath someone of is caliber and class.

Strictly my opinion

come on nic, why selfish? he wants a farewell? shit, jeter has always stayed away from all the bs. and dont think he needs any gifts either. i think all comes down to his injury. but def he will be missed by all fans.

"If you know it's time, then just retire already" - then that should go across the board for ALL professional athlete's…..

I also don't want to see him retire, but know he can still make a difference this last season on the field and in the clubhouse for the team. Happy that he is getting to do it his way and without Ahole around too!!!

i dislike the fact that he is retiring but, is the right time to do so. i think he knows that the ankle may be a factor. he doesnt want to linger around like a lot of players. he has basically accomplished everything a baseball player can. so typical jeter, he will go with style. it will be a long time before we will see another jeter, if ever.

I don't think that's the motivation behind him announcing it now. I think that he just wanted to be able to have his name announced at least once in Fenway Park and not get booed.

I'm fine with the farewell tour. Gives fans around the league an opportunity to give him a little praise on his way out. There aren't many players who really deserve it, but Jeter's definitely one of them.

So Jeter watched Rivera rake in the gifts and accolades with a farewell tour last year so he wants one for himself? Don't get me wrong, I always thought Jeter was a class act but really, if you know "it's time", then just retire already. This seems like a very selfish way to end a HOF career.

Shouldn't that be in the Fantasy Thread, LCC?
