The Yankee captain was asked afterward what he thought about Rivera and Andy Pettitte's retirements.
"I'm going to miss them a lot. These guys are brothers to me, been through quite a bit together. Pretty much everything you can experience on the field," Jeter said. "My whole professional career I've been playing with at least one of them. I'll definitely miss them."
So will the Yankees.
With Pettitte and Rivera gone, it's time to start talking about replacing them.
