David Ortiz told MLB Network Radio that he’s going to miss Derek Jeter when he’s gone:

“If there’s one guy that the baseball game is gonna miss once he’s retired, it’s Derek . . . He is one of the baseball players that I can tell you that pretty much his whole career has done everything perfectly right. And when I watch him play I get goose bumps. You know what I’m saying? That’s one of the players that everybody wants to come and see. . . . That’s a player that definitely we’re all gonna miss after he’s done with baseball.”

This is about the highest praise you’ll ever hear from one player about another.
