We've been hating this guy for 15 years, you think that's about to change just because he's retiring?
He's in Reggie Miller territory at this point as far as NY sports villains. Great player with one team his whole career, seems like an upstanding guy off the field, and takes a perverse joy in destroying your team in big spots.
I remember when there was the rivalry (lopsided as it was) with the Braves around 2000. I swear he got a hit every time he came up.
