Bullshiat. That was a maudlin 5 gawdam minute soap opera.

Jeter's retiring? You'd think they would have mentioned that

I heard some audio this morning of some tool shouting "over rated".  in the middle of which, Jeter hits a double.  I love it when that happens.

Yes it was so great I watched Seinfeld instead for the first half hour.

Some of the worst game calling I've ever heard btw, and I've listened to white sox broadcasts

Close to actual quote: don't try to sell me on lighter air in Colorado

And they painted the ump in a bad light on the front door curve strike that was off maybe an inch? Holy hell. I had to turn it off in the third

He deserved the recognition, but it would have been nice if MLB and Fox had taken his balls out of their mouths long enough to say something about Tony Gwynn and Don Zimmer.

Baseball needs to decide what the ASG is. Saying it matters and having it determine home field advantage for the WS doesn't make up for weepy, feel-good crap, not having the best players on the field, 34-man rosters where everyone expects to play, and caps that look like they were available to the first 20,000 fans through the Centerfield Gate.

+1

You would think among five people (FIVE?!) on the "broadcast team" they would have one of them recognize either of them.  How many years did Zim work with Jeter?  They couldn't even be bothered by that.

Instead, we got four hours of kneepad coverage from Fox, the usual sensationalizing of things, but missing the little things.

Fox and MLB should be ashamed.

And the fark has Jeter done that was at all noteworthy (for his playing ability) for YEARS.

I don't hate Jeter. I thought that Jordan ad was really well done and speaks to how important he's been to baseball and New York for the last 20 years but I really can't believe how much knobslobbing this guy's been getting around the league this year. It's totally embarrassing hero-worship east-coast bias bullshiat.

Jeter plays 20 years in Milwaukee, Kansas City, or hell, even Dallas or San Diego and he gets none of this "last lap" crap

He's the all-time hits leader on the freaking Yankees, dude. Your argument is like saying Joe Montana definitely would have thrown an interception in the Super Bowl if he had been playing for the Bills.

Tried to play a drinking game every time they said "Derek Jeter", "Derek", "Jeter", "#2 or "Captain" last night.  Not one of the brightest moments I've had, but it got fun around the third inning and horrible around the sixth.

That's because nobody would watch Milwaukee, Kansas City, or hell, even Dallas or San Diego.  Jeter will most likely retire with the most hits by any shortstop in the history of the game, and if teams want to salute him on the way out so be it.

ManateeGag: the question is, who's going to go on the retirement tour next year?  is this going to be a recurring thing now?


Unless someone plays for the same team for 20 years; you are most likely not going to see such a send off any time soon; chances are extremely rare. Big Papi from Boston is one I can think of that will get a send off, other then that the problem is most players belong to too many franchises.

Nolan Ryan? 4 teams; Carlton Fisk is another I think he only played with two teams. Carl yastrzemski? 1 team; problem with all these players is none of them have played in the past 10 years.

Tom Glavine is someone I think only played for 2 teams (recently) for over 20 years, Cal Ripken got a nice little send off when he retired.

Now lets look at Matt Stairs; played 19 seasons with 14 teams?! Yeah just whose going to give him a send off? one of the 13 clubs he isn't even playing for? did he even make an impact to that team one year? nope.

So yeah, Jeter deserves it.

loooongview1: Jeter will most likely retire with the most hits by any shortstop in the history of the game, and if teams want to salute him on the way out so be it.


1) That's a pretty narrow definition of greatness.  Omar Vizquel had 2,877 hits as a very good defender, and basically no one noticed when he retired.

2) Jeter already has that record.  While he trails Wagner in career hits as a baseball player (3,420 to 3,408), Wagner played a few other positions during his career, whereas Jeter has only very rarely DH'd or pinch-hit.  Jeter has 3,325 hits when in the game as a shortstop.  Wagner's exact splits aren't known (at least to baseball-reference), but he only played 1,887 of his 2,777 games as a shortstop, with the rest split over every other position but catcher.

Maybe if he was a key part in winning 5 WS trophies they might have.

He also was one of the few bright spots of the whole Steriod Era crap, where baseball could point to him and say "see, not everyone needs PEDS to be a superstar"

And i'm sure the owners of the teams in MIL, KC, and SD are sad to see him go because a Jeter/Yankees team puts asses in the seats on the road.

I tend to agree, with the caveat that the player should also be liked and have played at the highest level.  Jamie Moyer pitched forever, but no one was organizing freakin' parades when he came to town for the last time.

Active players I could see having a big sendoff:
Ichiro, if he ever retires.
Albert Pujols, particularly if the recent resurgence (possibly due to having healthy feet again) is sustained.
Clayton Kershaw, if he has a second act and doesn't commit any crimes and stays with the Dodgers and/or maybe one other team.
Joe Mauer, if this season is an illusion.

That's it.

ManateeGag: I heard some audio this morning of some tool shouting "over rated".  in the middle of which, Jeter hits a double.  I love it when that happens.


So, Derek Jeter is presently ranked 4th in career bWAR among active players.  Two of the three guys above him are very obvious.  Anyone who can name the third one without looking understands the difference between an overrated (*) player (Jeter) and an underrated player (this guy).

(*) There is no conflict between the statements "Derek Jeter deserves to be inducted into the Hall of Fame." and "Derek Jeter is overrated."

I'll poke a hole in your argument here...Craig Biggio.  I don't think he got near the fanfare nationally, especially in the All-Star Game, which he didn't even make in his last year.  One could argue hits too, but they're both over 3,000, so there's no huge point there.  They both played through the Steriod Era without being remotely linked to PED's.  The BIG difference here is that Biggio went to only one WS, winning zero of those games; big advantage to Jeter there.

I honestly think it comes down to the Club; I remember when ryan sandberg retired from the Chicago Cubs; they gave him a bran new car and farewell in his final game. Tampa Bay Rays is one of the funny ones, they retired Fred McGriff after he only played with them 1 season.

I just wish one team had the balls when he comes to town to just say "F*ck you, you're a Yankee, we don't give a sh*t" and not even acknowledge it. I wished the same thing for Rivera last year.

This assumption that every fan base should care someone from another team is retiring is bullsh*t. F*ck Derek Jeter.

That's not going to be a farewell tour, that's going to be a don't-let-the-door tour.

Although I think if a team gave him a rocking chair made out of used steroid needles, that'd be apropos. I'm sure Farkers could think of several more fitting gifts.
