    A wise decision, however it plays out.

    And there is an asshole who covers the Dodgers who can't wait to leave him off his HOF ballot.

    Does this mean he and A-Rod will never be on the field together again? Sniff...

    That could be a factor in the decision.

    Luis Aparicio is the only 39-year-old in MLB history to start at shortstop for a winning team (1973 Red Sox). No one has ever done it at 40, and Jeter turns 40 on June 26.

    He has 3,316 career hits. What are the chances he can get to 4,257?

    I say 25 percent at the most.

    If anyone can get 941 hits in one season, it's Jetes.

    It's going to be sad when he's gunned down three-quarters of the way through the season by an international crime syndicate he was chasing, right after having a long conversation with C.C. Sabathia in which he shows pictures of his retirement villa in Key West. "Damnit, it was his last job!" Suzyn Waldman will cry.

    The media circus will overwhelm us all.
