New York Yankees captain and master of the intangible Derek Jeter is seeking a deal to stay in the Bronx and continue with the lifestyle with which he's grown accustomed. He and his agent have decided the best strategy is to conduct negotiations out in public.
To wit: Casey Close said his client's value to the organization "cannot be overstated."
Jeter, in the final year of a 10-year contract, made $21 million this past year while hitting a lackluster .270. It's no secret that his value in New York is exponentially higher than anywhere else in the league. Can you imagine the deep-pocketed Yankees refusing to pay him anything he wants?
