No problem with Jeter. Had stellar career. Congrats to him. Im just kinda tired…and Im sure I'm not alone…of this endless parade of some players who have peaked professionally, announcing BEFORE the season that this will be their last rodeo. If your going to retire, just do it! I can't help but think that the Yankee marketing machine helped bring this to life, with the Captain's blessing! What else does his legacy need? His accomplishments on the field, and in his off-the-field life, have already been written. "But the game/fans want(s) a last chance to say goodbye". Hey Derek, saying goodbye once should be enough for anyone. Same for the fans. Helping create a standard for ticket price increases unilaterally' throughout the league ballparks, seems somewhat disingenuous for this or any "farewell" tour. Not a slam against him personally but to any player involved similarly. In closing, I just feel more class is associated w/ leaving the stage appreciatively and quietly.
