Paul O’Neill weighs in on Jeter legacy, recalls rocky start
YES Network’s Paul O’Neill joined the show to weigh in on Derek Jeter’s career and his decision to retire after the season.
O’Neill said that he’s not that surprised. “You get to this age, you start second-guessing your body,” O’Neill said. “I just hope Derek can get healthy enough that he can have a solid year and enjoy this.”
O’Neill said starting Jeter as a rookie was controversial at the time. But he caught on really quickly and he’s been the face of the Yankees for a long time.
