    He is definitely a player that has a lot of pride. He has done great things for this franchise throughout his time here and I guess he didn't come to terms with his role on the team until it was near the end of the season.

    I used to feel the same way but seeing him in the end and how much he really cared changed my perspective. I definitely see him in a new light.

    Actually far from it. I had the chance to meet him on several occasions and he was such a nice guy.

    I know you did. I tried to do a igawa appreciation thread but it was deemed unnecessary and off topic by the mod. This should be moved to your thread only need one. The mod is off his game by letting this one stay.

    I can't blame him for his decision on not returning to the Yankees. Its been a pleasure watching him over his career, and he played a huge part in every championship they won. He and Rivera will always be linked. Its always sad seeing generations retire. I remember being sad when Paul O'Neil and Bernie Williams moved on. And the next wave is already upon us.

    Thanks Jorge, we will miss you.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    For most of the 00s I felt he was the team's most underappreciated player. The biggest knock on him is that his contract was one year too long.

    I know I may be alone on this, but I kind of hope Jorge does sign with another team. Yes, the "one team" thing is nice and magical and I love it, but really, I think his heart is still in the game, he still wants to play. He's given us enough, and he is not making a fuss about the YS door closing for him (at least as a player). I spending a season in an ugly *** Marlins uniform lets him close the door on his career free of regrets, I have to support him.

    Thank you Jorge, and good luck to whatever you do.

    Unless we face you in the World Series. Then you're dead to me.

    He deserves two threads.

    Does 20 get retired or does it just become one of those numbers that no one wears for a long time?

    I'm thinking 20 might be mothballed the same as 21, which no one has really worn since O'Neill retired (I think LaTroy Hawkins may have briefly worn 21 but the fans didn't like it and he switched).

    They might as well retire both of them.

    He did, he wore it in honor of Roberto Clemente, but the fans boo'd him so he changed it, but I think it gets retired down the road, he's borderline for me with Moose and Andy as well.


    Plus thanks Jorge, always loved your hard-nose play over the past years.
