Reggie is showing signs of dementia.

He was a great one, but his time has past.

Reggie should've kept his mouth shut. Don't bite the hand that feeds you.

Reggie must be getting dementia.

Apparently he forgot his behavior was so trouble making and disrespectful, always screaming, throwing fits, tantrums in Billy Martin's face, and casting a chaotic negative atmosphere and a hostile environment, that the book was entitled: "The Bronx Zoo"!

I think the Yankees are doing the respectable thing for Alex, the protective thing for their player. It's a power move, sure, but hey, it's their power and their prerogative to keep that touble makin' mixer OWT! Off of their turf.

O, and not to mention nor forget, Reggie Jackson CHOSE to be inducted into The Hall Of Fame AS a Yankee.

So him trashing Alex Rodriquez is like trashing a fellow team mate.

Reggie was always exciting no doubt, grand slammin' and grand standin'...

The memory I have of Reggie is him standing out in Center Field, hat over his heart, head down and openly weeping for the loss of Thurman Munson. Reggie's got heart, and passion, no doubt about that.
