    Re: Jeter demanding 6 years - $150 million

    The Yankees fully understand the ball is in their court. I would love to see them come back in a few months and drop their offer to 3yrs/$30 million. He would not even get that much from another club.

    3 years @ $15 was a huge overpayment and compensated Jeter for being the face of the franchise.

    Well, that is true I suppose. But even with their monuments dedicated to famous Yanks, their lure has always been about the rings -- as it should be.

    .710 OPS = asking for 23/24M a season? Man, every player in baseball is severely underpaid by these standards.

    Bill Simmons was lobbying on a recent podcast that the BoSox should sign him to play third. I cannot express how much I would LOVE to see that happen, if not just to stick it to the Yankees and their fans. (Plus, Jeter is probably better off at third than SS these days.)
    I think 3 years at $15 Million per year is paying quite a premium over what Jeter is probably worth. I don't know if he'd even get an offer of 3 years for a total of $15 Million from another team let alone $15 Million per year. The Yankees are offering about $10 Million per year over what he is now worth and IMO that is paying for what he means to the team/fans/city/history.

    He's coming off of a 10 year $189 Million deal and will be 37 next season. Seems he has been paid quite a bit of respect and getting another $45 Million in his twilight after a seaon where his OPS dropped to .710 and is likely reduced to the role of bench player before the third year of that deal is over seems pretty darned respectful IMO. Burnett's deal was signed at age 31 after a season where he'd made 34 starts and topped the league in K's and K/9 and will expire in 2013 when Burnett will be 3 months shy of 37 years old which is about the same age that Jeter would be when he plays his first game under his new deal. Its simply not comparable. The fact that Burnett fell apart has no relationship to this decision.

    I think some are underestimating the amount of brand equity Jeter has within baseball. I think there are some teams out there who'd pay Jeter $15 million or more per year over 3 years.

    I don't think there are ANY that will come anywhere close. Yankees have told him to look for offers.... let's see if any come close.

    I have a hard time thinking anyone would top that deal and even if someone did could Jeter lose anything from that brand equity by playing for multiple teams? In New York he's the captain world champion gamer who dates supermodels, you don't think he loses some brand equity by getting that 3000th hit in ??? wherever else he would go.

    I don't see it for three years. Maybe for one year, but I can't come-up with a team that would pay that. All that brand non-sense would fade quickly when he's hitting like a 7 hole guy with limited range. (Remember how anxious we were for Griffey's deal to come to a merciful end). Jeter was productive and was paid handsomely for it. He didn't give a hometown discount when he was one of the game's top players, he shouldn't expect the team to give such a huge loyalty premium now that he's not so special.

    My thoughts exactly.

    Imagine what the Yankees would do to the rest of baseball if they gave Jeter $23-25 million a year. We could see Paul Janish someday get $10 million in arbitration, and that's not a knock on Paul.

    The whole thing makes me smile.

    The Skankees will eventually overpay big time, and Jeter will still act all offended.

    If he had been the real team player he's glorified to be, he would have moved to second or third base when they got Arod, a far superior shortstop.

    Now this hero of all Yankeedom will personify the most important Yankee tradition of all..... greed.

    I hope Jeter gets it. Why, because the Yankees set the whole thing up when they gave A-Roid that ridiculous contract that lasts until the end of time. Say what you will, but if Jeter retires today, which he could do and still get into the HOF, the Yankees will not be as good as they were last year -- especially paying big bucks for Posada, Burnett and the aformentioned 3b.
