What makes you say that?

Though Jeter is not what he used to be due to age ...
Watching him will always be like poetry in motion.

He isn't hitting or fielding his position with that Jeter edge,
at 38 his love of the game and confidence will juice him up, hopefully. He may have to give up that lead off position.
We shall see.

Have you noticed Alex Rodriquez has incorporated that signature Jeter move: jump up, turn in the air, and throw in one smooth motion. What an arm!

OVERRATED!!!!! The only reason Jeter is popular is because he plays for the most vile franchise in sports the STANKEES!!!! If he had spent his whole career in say Cincinnati or Kansas City; he would be just another nameless baseball player & then some. He's a product of the Jay Z/MTV bull---- where people only wear the garbage Yankees cap because of some "musician" who many years ago sold weed to 10 year old kids in the ghetto. Give me Jose Reyes any day of the week (Although he was just put on the disabled list).

Exactly...what would be fan interference and an out in 31 parks is a home run for Cheater in the playoffs

The fact that there has always been alot of pressure on Jeter:

-He's the golden boy of The Yanks
< just ask Alex Rodriquez >
-The apple of Steinbrenner's eye
-Who set him up in advertisement
-And MORE is expected of him

And to produce as well as he has under that much pressure, THAT'S what makes him a great ahlete and well loved and respected. He's earned it.
He's also one of the best SS in all of Baseball.

Never know. Everything he does is in high class fashion.

He's had a stellar career. About 3 more year sounds right.

Glad he hit the 3K at home! The Man never disappoints.
