In response to JoseLaguna's comment:
99 percent of baseball fans, baseball historians, the media, and talk show hosts, believe in all sincerity that Jeter will be a shoo-in into the HOF on the first ballot.
The 1% that don't agree must have spent the last 20 years in a cave...
Only lifetime Yankee fans or baseball historians are qualified to assess if Jeter is a top 5 Yankee.
I think you're dismissing those that are baseball fans first and foremost...Which is an all inclusive club, that any one gets to join, of which I am a member. Who happens to be a lifelong 3rd generation fan of the Boston Red Sox Baeball Club of the American League.
This isn't a Yankee fan forum - it is a Red Sox forum.
True, to be precise it's a Red Sox forum, this thread is titled. Baseball-Red Sox-front burner; meaning topics that are in the present revelent to our hometown nine. Jeter anouncing his retirement qualifies as something worth discussing. That he plays for the hated Yanks of New York, our chief rival makes it a front burner worthy...
Whether Jeter is a top 5 all-time SS would be a good topic on a Yankee forum in NYC but this is a Red Sox forum within the Boston Globe website that is in Boston, Mass. and not in NYC.
Funny, I'm sitting in Seattle and able to access this site?
Why can't Bosox fans obsess about their team, their history, their organization, and start about such topics. Am I in the right forum?
Bosox fans already obsess over our boys...The good, the bad and the ugly. Fear not, when one of our boys announce they're retiring. Are worthy of consideration to be in the conversation for one of the greatest in franchise history. I'm pretty sure this board will light up like a Christmas tree.
Hmmm just a thought perhaps you could start a discussion on that very topic...I'm pretty sure you'll get plenty of bites.
