Should Yankees Short Stop Derek Jeter Hang Up His Glove?


The preliminary results on Derek Jeter’s CT scan are negative; his results will also be sent to Doctor Anderson, who also performed his ankle surgery. Ever sense Jeter returned this season he has not been able to remain healthy, which is an indication that his time may be done in baseball and its past time to move on. A great career none the less and an absolute hall of famer.

Old age will never cooperate with Jeter’s desire to continue his career with the Yankees, after this latest injury and the season almost done, will Jeter use this off season to get as healthy as possible or face the truth that his body at age 39 will not be able to withstand the baseball season.

Manager Joe Girardi pulled Jeter from the game in the bottom of the sixth inning for precautionary reasons, saying he didn’t like the way the shortstop looked on the basepaths while running to first on a single. Jeter appeared to hurt his ankle on a ground ball in the sixth. He went to his left to field a grounder by Jonny Gomes, planted with his left foot and threw wide of first baseman Lyle Overbay.

It is my opinion that its been past time for Jeter to call it a career.
