No problem at first I thought you were being sarcastic because you do have a comedic side to you. I wasn't sure if I should answer or not lol.

Yep Jeter is still the man and the sooner this ends the better both sides need to meet in the middle where ever that is.

Jeter & Yankees Are Far Apart



10:12am: Jeter is asking for less than $150MM over six years, according to Jim Baumbach of Newsday (on Twitter).


8:06am: Derek Jeter’s representatives are asking for at least $80MM more than the Yankees are willing to offer in negotiations for the free agent shortstop, according to Bill Madden of the New York Daily News. The starting point for Jeter and agent Casey Close was six years and $150MM, according to Madden, who reports that the Jeter camp is not budging from demands for a $25MM annual salary. Alex Rodriguez’s contract “is at the crux of Jeter’s and Close’s stance,” according to Madden.


The Yankees have offered Jeter multiple deals, including one that would pay the 36-year-old $45MM over the course of the next three seasons. Close suggested that the Yankees' tactics are "baffling," so Yankees GM Brian Cashman encouraged Jeter and his agent to test the free agent market in search of a more generous deal.


Joel Sherman of the New York Post proposes that the Yankees could sign Jeter to a six-year $75MM deal that could become more lucrative if Jeter reaches incentives based on plate appearances. The suggested deal would pay Jeter $20MM per season from 2011-13 and shield the Yankees from the luxury tax.


 


Now,  you all how much  I love  Jeter ( which is obvious) but if this is true, that  is insane and he must have lost his mind. No way you give a 36


year old  shortstop this kind of contract, even if his name is  Derek Jeter. If his camp won't  budge from this  demands, then the  Yankees need to


let him walk . He has to get over his jealousy of  ARod's  contract. Just because Hank was stupid enough to give  A Rod this contract does


not mean Derek is   entitled to the same .


If he contiunes this stance ( if this is  true) he is going to ruin his legacy and over what more money? Hasn't he made enough for  5  lifetimes?

 


NOBODY DOES IT BETTER THAN THE NEW YORK YANKEES

He'll be the main front man of the organization when his career is over. Grand opening at a Yankee owed store Jeter will be there to cut the ribbon. Special events held at the stadium and there goes number 2 smiling, shaking hands, and taking pictures.





I dont believe for one second Derek Jeter wants to a Yankees front man after he retires.  First of all, those jobs dont pay that much (compared to $19 million per year) and players like Reggie Jackson and Yogi berra do it because the extra $ actually makes a difference in their lives.  The Yankees aren't going to pay big bucks to Derek Jeter to cut ribbons and shake hands.  You expect a guy to go from $20 million per year as a player to $100k as a PR guy?  LOL would YOU do that?  Seriously even if they paid him $1 million I dont think he'd want to hang around.


I think after 20 years with the organization once Derek retires he'll do the same thing you are I would do.  He'll move on.
I know if I were him I'd buy an island in the carribean and/or a cattle ranch in the midwest and retire to a quiet existence.

So you think he'll just fade into the abyss never to be seen again. C'mon on now let's be serious about something Jeter is not an attention whore but like many other celebrities he loves the spotlight. Besides it won't be just money from the Yankees that he would be pulling in. Personal appearances fees, autograph signings, etc. Jeter won't be working with the Yankees to make ends meet it would be to stay in the public eye. Plus I wouldn't be surprised if he gets into other business ventures to closer he gets to retirement.

To anyone going through a difficult time right now  remember someone always has it worse.
