The Yankees three-year and $45 million offer to Derek Jeter is well known by now, but we really haven’t heard much from Jeter’s camp as to what he’s looking for. There are however, pretty consistent rumors a what it is.
Via the NY Daily News:
Jeter’s camp is believed to be asking for at least five years and roughly $100 million, and while Cashman wouldn’t discuss a counteroffer, the GM said that like in any negotiation, “defining what is fair” figures to be the biggest sticking point.
Wow. That means the Yankees and Jeter are currently $55 million apart on a deal. Somebody is going to have to make a major concession.
