Recap & Ranking The Derek Jeter Farewell Tour Gifts

The most creative gift has to go to the Texas Rangers but they had a little help from President George W. Bush while the gift most likely classified as "going through the motions" has to go to the Kansas City Royals. No gift from Kansas City, just a donation to the Turn 2 Foundation. Honestly that's probably what Derek Jeter would have had each team do but who buys the person socks and underwear for Christmas when they ask for it? If I had to make a Top 5 list I would go with the Rangers gift, the Mets gift, the Tigers gift, the Blue Jays gift, and the Angels gift. All of these are very likely to be outdone by a large margin by the Yankees this afternoon and by the Boston Red Sox on the final game of the season. Stay tuned to the YES Network this afternoon.
