Quote of the day: Robin Ventura on Jeter celebrations: 'He's not dying'

On Sunday, the White Sox were the latest team to shower retiring Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter with gifts ...

The donation to Jeter's foundation is of course a commendable gesture, but the rest of it -- giving expensive items (that he'll probably put in storage) to a guy who's a millionaire at least 100 times over -- has always struck me as bizarre. He's a ballplayer who's retiring so as to devote more time to the Good Life. Why not just some recognition over the PA and a standing O as he presents the lineup card, in addition to the donation, of course?

Regarding all of this, White Sox manager Robin Ventura seems to be similarly inclined ...

Hear, hear, Robin Ventura. Hear, hear.
