Gosh, that actually brought a little tear to my eye. Farewell Jete. No. 2 will always be No. 1 to me.

Good riddance. Another overpaid crybaby bites the dust. We pay millions to these fools to eat hot dogs and chew chew in the dugout. And maybe hit a homerun...maybe. He should try soccer. Now tha't s a game you play with your heart and soul. Not this Snoozeball.

He's just a highly paid ballplayer, a good one,but, not the Messiah. People get too wound up in sports. Chill ....

If you half as much as you think you do, you would be dangerous. The story is not about the player or the sport, it's abou the MAN, you ignorant, basement dweller.
