Not $25 mil per, but maybe they meet in the middle around $19-20 mil per.

    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.)
    NOT FUNNY!!!!!

    A-Rod was signed at age 31 coming off a season of .314/.422/.645/1.067 with 54HR, 156 RBI and 143 Runs Scored. He was signed when he was still regarded as clean and the contract would take him through breaking the all time HR record (and if he was clean, would net back a ton of money to pay for the contract). I know this is what Jeter is probably looking at, but if he can't see the difference in the situations, he's delusional.

    All good points. But the situations are similar in two respects. The Yankees were/are bidding against themselves and both players ended up alienating their fans.

    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.
    Yep. I hope the Yankees overpay big-time for Jeter, and that it bites them big-time.

    The Yankees don't get bitten by how much they pay them, they can only get bitten by how much they play them.

    Of course, there is a Yankee free agent the Red Sox could consider making a great big over market offer to that wouldn't bother me a bit.

    I don't believe the Red Sox would go after Jeter for that kinda money.

    I'm thinking Theo would laugh out loud and then take another sip of his double mocha Starbucks and get back to reading the WSJ.

    Sawx are way too smart for a Jeter move, even if it would goose the hell out of the Yanks.

    Well, I'm sure it's a negotiating position. If you want something outrageous, you start with a demand that makes your final acceptable position seem reasonable in contrast.

    Whatever he ends up with, it will seem much more palatable compared to the ridiculous starting point his agent has put out there.

    And in the end, he'll be able to say he stayed above the fray, letting his agent handle the dirty business of contract negotiation.

    He'll say things like "I'm just glad we got a deal done and I get to remain a Yankee for life".

    He is probably thinking he wants more than the 2 or 3 years that the Yanks are offering, so he counters with 6, and they settle on 4. I don't see how A) Jeter turns down the money the Yanks are offering and B) the Yanks letting their captain play for another team over money.

    If they thought he was clean, they deserve everything they get. Karma, baby, Karma.
