08:14 AM ET 09.21 | It wasn't all that long ago that a tense negotiation had some wondering the same thing about Derek Jeter. He was always destined to be a Yankee-for-life, wasn't he? Only when Jeter was a free agent, it turned out it wasn't so easy. ... So who is surprised now when Jeter sits in the dugout at Yankee Stadium, as he authors another superstar season, with ESPN's Rick Reilly and serves the Yanks a taste of their own business theory. As part of a 15-minute powwow last Friday before the Rays series, Reilly asked: "Peyton Manning changed teams this season after 14 seasons with one team. Could you see yourself doing that?" "Well, if I wanted to keep playing, yes," Jeter replied. "It's a business. People forget that."

How odd (or likely) would it be to see Jeter in a Red Sox uniform?

That would tweak Yankee nation.

It's amazing how a simple comment by Bill Parcells has become a routine part of the language now.

Terrific player. Any team would love to have him, even this late in his career. He is a class act. As far as the red sox, I think they have to get younger, skip the older players even tho he would be good for the clubhouse.
