Jeter's place in Yankee, and indeed baseball history, is significant, but still not clear. Much of that will take shape after Jeter retires.

Despite the good first weak enjoyed by the Mets, and the recent hot streak by the Yankees, this season may be a rough one for big league baseball in New York. It is possible that, for the first time since 1992, both the Yankees and Mets will finish below .500.
