Derek Jeter deserves some respect

May 19, 2017

In response to Dave Frederick stating "I'll be happy when all things Derek Jeter are finally retired," I say sour grapes.

If Derek Jeter played his entire career for the Phillies instead of the Yankees, I'm sure you would be all over it.

While it's true many people hate the Yankees, few are hard pressed to find any true fault with Derek Jeter. He played the game with integrity, ethics and intensity. Finally, good behavior is rewarded.

You shouldn't take that away from him, his family or fans. I guess you'll be napping when he is inducted into the Hall of Fame. Perhaps first ballot unanimously.
