Heyman: Yankees Likely To Offer Jeter $45M

The Yankees are poised to make a 3 year $45M offer to Derek Jeter, tweets WFAN’s Jon Heyman.

Jeter, his agent Casey Close, and Yankees officials including Hal Steinbrenner got together last week in Tampa, Florida. There have been additional discussions over the past week.

Jeter is a free agent for the first time after completing a 10-year contract this season.

    In 2007 Joe Torre was in the same situation as Jeter. He flew to Tampa with his buddy Cashman and came back unemployed. The organization showed then that they play hardball when it comes to contracts for declining talent, other examples are Damon and Matsui. A Rod stuck it to them the same year, good for him.

    Looking back now Jeter short changed himself by signing a ten year contract in 2000. Jeter could of probably leveraged his talents when he was a younger man and made more money. The Yankees are calling the shots now, kind of like the undertakers when their clients have no bargaining power. Jeter may be better off going Hollywood where the better actors make Jeteresque type salaries for only one film.
