Gon't worry, Chuck. They have Scutaro, who needs Jeter?

However, the Sox are in a market for a catcher...


I see that.. How the hell did they let V-mart go??
Not that I am complaining

Personally I don't think Jeter or Rivera are going anywhere, but that pic of Jeter wearing a Sox uni is priceless.

"We've made guys very, very rich -- some are wealthier than the owners"

Go Little George!! -- I love that quote -- and the fact is, he's right --- I hate the Yankees but Geo. II deserves credit for telling it like it is -- it goes way back in the family, to Davey Collins, Paul Blair, Catfish Hunter, Ken Holtzman, Luis Tiant etc., right on through to the huge A-Rod/Clemens & on & on, contracts -- all set up for life thanks to the NYY

but in fairness -- so are all big league ballplayers -- set up for life financially

That would be fine with me, but I wouldn't start counting those chickens yet...

Rangers making five-year offer to Cliff Lee?
By Mark J. Miller

Derek Jeter(notes) may want a long-term contract worth $23 million a year from the New York Yankees, but Cliff Lee(notes) may be the one to actually get that kind of deal.

The New York Post reports that Texas Rangers execs are about to make a five-year offer to the most-coveted free agent on the market. The Yankees are thought to have already made an offer for five or six seasons worth of work, the paper reports.

"The Rangers are hoping the absence of a state tax in Texas and the proximity of Lee's Arkansas home to Dallas will be strong enough selling points to keep Lee with the Rangers," the Post reports.

However, "several club officials" are thinking the money will be too good in NYC for Lee to turn it down, the paper reports.

The Yankees may go up to $51 million on Jeter; add a fourth year option
Craig Calcaterra
Dec 1, 2010, 8:45 AM EST

As was reported last night, Jeter and the Yankees spoke again yesterday and things went well.

Afterwards, Jon Heyman reported that, while there is nothing imminent, the Yankees may be willing to go up to $51 million over three years and to possibly add a fourth year in the form of an option. Moshe Mandel of TYU had received similar word from a source prior to Heymanís report.

All of which fits nicely into the scenario I outlined yesterday: a negotiation more geared towards giving Jeter a face-saving way to accept a contract much closer to that which the Yankees were offering than it is to his reported demands. $51 million is still high in my mind, but when the gulf between the sides was $65 million or more, $6 million is not exactly a generous concession by the Yankees. A fourth year in and of itself is not smart, but if itís an option of some kind ó especially if itís a team option or a vesting option ó itís far preferable, and ultimately not much for the team to give up.

But however this shakes out, a face-to-face meeting followed by a report reflecting calmness and (so far) no incendiary leaks to the media suggests that Jeter and the Yankees have started fresh, with an eye towards restoring sanity to the process.

And thatís good news for everyone except the bloggers.

How would those salary talks go when Jeter comes in with his 2010 stats --
.270/10/67?

That's already happened.


Not with the old man.

The Yankees have always played hard ball with their own free agents.

I believe they would be going similarly except there would be a few really juicy George quotes along the lines of "he spit the bit." Otherwise in terms of the money it would be the same. This is how the organization has always handled its own internal free agents.

Jason Giambi for example.

Not that the Yankees are lacking in $, but the better spend is Cliff Lee. If the Yankees plead poverty from signing Lee as the reason they didn't sign Jeter.....


Whoo boy!

Folks they are signing Jeter. It's not even a serious thought that they will not.

Agreed. Not sure why the sides are arguing about money though. How much is enough?

RIP Ron Santo -- sorry to hear this -- he was a great one at third base (had his card), w/Ernie Banks & Billy Williams on those teams
