Default Jeter signs for 2014

Makes absolutely no sense...

New York Yankees sign Derek Jeter to one-year deal - ESPN New York

That $12 million is a small price to pay for the amount of tickets and concessions that will be sold simply because he's in the lineup. I'm with premium, I couldn't care less for the Yankees, but Jeter plays the game in a way that shows his level of respect and love for its purity.

No, I think he has Pete Rose's hit record in his sights.

He's nearly 1000 short.

Assuming 200 hits/season, he would be nearing 45 when he broke the record

Not gonna happen

Derek Jeter had a player option for next year.


He had signed a 3yr/$51m contract with a player option. His AAV next year would have counted as about $15m towards the luxury tax.

It may be costing the Yankees more money ($3m buyout + $12m contract), but the Yankees will save about $3m towards the $189 luxury tax number.

They overpaid because he's the face the Yankees. This is nothing to cry about.

Hmmm, divide $12 mil by the 20 games he'll play...nice paycheck. I agree with the fact he deserves all the accolades and rewards but the Yankees are stupid to pay him when they have bigger fish to fry.

For jeter? $12 mil is nothing like somebody said. The Yankees make a killing off him at the stadium

Even if he plays just 12 games, his jersey was #12 in sales this year.

he had a 9.5 million dollar player option, by signing him to this deal they shave $ off paying the lux tax

How much do you think he gets the Yankees in merchandising dollars? My guess is an awful lot.

Oh, my bad. I forgot it's all about how much the team makes as opposed to winning games. I can't stand the Yankees so I guess I should applaud them for digging themselves an even bigger hole...

Jeter can't help the Yankees win games anymore? Just because he only played 12 games last year, doesn't mean he' ll only play 12 next. An older Jeter is better than anyone else who tried to fill in for him this year!

I hope his "leadership" is worth $12million because his glove and bat won't be.

He needs to move off SS, but I see no reason he won't be a productive hitter for another couple of years

Think this is his last year. I can see why he'd come back, kinda like Rivera seniro this this season.

Kinda doubt it, I think in spite of what he says in interviews he really wants to take a shot at Pete Rose's hit total. Don't know how close he'll get but he is still 50 hits ahead of Rose's pace at this age. I'd say the only way he quits is if he gets hurt again.

He's 960 hits off Rose. If he can average 180 hits a season (no small feat) he can break Rose's record in pinstripes and there can finally be some dignity and class to that record.

I couldn't agree with this more. I got the chance to go to a game at Yankees Stadium last year, and it was my first MLB game ever. (I know it is sad for someone to go to his first game at 33, but whatever) I was stoked to be at the game, and especially to sit about 13 rows back behind home plate, but it bothered me that I did not get to see Jeter play. Probably my only chance ever and he had to get hurt. I know for a fact I would have probably doubled the amount of money I spent and how hard I tried to get there early etc, if I knew he was there.

If Jeter insists on playing Shortstop (which he will) it will cost the Yankees many games this season. He needs to move to the outfield or 3B for the good of the team.

The Yankees are going to stink for the next few years, so I don't think him booting a ball here or there is going to make that much of a difference.

Yeah, the Yankees made it to Petco for the 1st time ever in 2013 and I got tickets to the Saturday game. Of course Jeter only played Friday

I did get to see him in Anaheim a few years ago though in a game that was probably my favorite ever.

Good deal. The Yankees obviously aren't going anywhere and will turn into that place team that manages to stay above .500 but doesn't win enough games to go to the postseason or lose enough games to get better draft picks. Might as well keep the face of the franchise around to fool the fans into thinking they're still something.
