    Really? You think Jeter would put up with a guy like LaRussa?

    I doubt LaRussa would want Jeter.

    IF Jeter leaves the Yankees it'll be because Cashman held firm or another OWNER sees $$$ at the gate if Jeter has his name on that team's jersey. 2010 was a down year for him at the plate, but he hasn't been a good defender in years. He could OPS .900 again in 2011 though, and he'll put butts in seats.

    I doubt at this stage in his career he cares who the manager is as long as he plays everyday and gets paid.

    Do I think one of the best players of his generation will have no issues with dealing with one of the best managers in baseball history?

    Why wouldn't they?

    McGraw and Matty got along, anything is possible in baseball, anything.

    Maybe you're right, I just think Jeter would have a hard time with the heavy handed approach Larussa takes in managing the team given the managers he's accustomed to. Maybe I'm wrong on that.

    I honestly think Jeter should retire. No joke. Go straight into management or, more specifically, the business end of things with the Yankees, which he's going to be great at. Keep that lifelong Yankees connection that will make you perpetually bankable. Retire as a legend before physical decline really hits hard. Retire as a lifelong shortstop. Avoid endless goodbye parades at the stadium which tarnish the mystique.

    It'll never happen. But that's what I want. And I love Jeter.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Well, yeah, we watch sports to be entertained, and a player's decline is no fun to watch, especially a favorite player.

    Fay makes an interesting point in his blog article here:

    Jeter’s situation a lot like Larkin’s


    Derek Jeter’s situation with the Yankees is a lot like Barry Larkin’s was with Reds in 2000.

    The Reds, under pressure to keep him as a Red, signed him to 3-year, $27 million contract in July of that year.
