Has anyone ever seen Derek Jeter walk on water?
Jeter’s announcement that he plans to retire after the 2014 season predictably and justifiably created a lovefest, with fans, analysts, teammates and even opponents praising the New York Yankees shortstop for an incredible career both on and off the field.
Los Angeles Angels slugger Albert Pujols kicked things up a notch when asked about Jeter’s impending retirement.
Pujols on Jeter: "On and off field, he's the way you want your kids to grow up, Only Jesus is perfect, but he's pretty close to that guy."—

Well then. If Jeter grows a beard this season, it might be time to do a little investigating, as those comments have extra meaning coming from an Angel.
