Jeter Raises Doubts On Last Game At Fenway

Just when you thought Derek Jeter was the classiest guy on the planet—and would never bag out on playing his final games in Boston—there's this: "I can't think about Boston. I'm thinking about tonight's game, just like I can't think about tomorrow or Thursday. I just haven't been wired that way, to think that far in advance. I just take it one game at a time. It's a better question for when I get there." Really? Red Sox event master Charles "The Mad Dentist" Steinberg probably had to have smelling salts administered after hearing those words. Not to mention the fools who've laid out thousands for a chance to see #2 whiff a few times on Sunday. The skinny is that Steinberg's extravaganza will rival the Opening Ceremonies at the Rio Olympics in its splendor. Could Jeter really stiff all of his close, personal friends at Fenway Park? Nah! Don't worry, he'll come through. Right?
