Will number 2 be Number 20?

The New York Yankees began the practice of retiring number with Lou Gehrig in 1939. To date they have retired 19 numbers but it probably won’t be too long before that number is 21. They have retired more number than any other sports team. For example the Pittsburgh Steelers have only retired one number for Ernie Stautner who wasn’t even on any of their championship teams. My question is which number gets retired first, number 42 (Mariano Rivera) or number 2 (Derrick Jeter)? Comment if you have an opinion. This is Jeter during spring training this year which will be his last season.
