    Jeter Returns to Yanks on 1 Year Deal

    Kind of an interesting move. The Yankees gave Jeter more money ($12 mil compared to $9.5 mil), which saves them money in luxury tax (the AAV of his last contract was $14.375 mil).

    Over/under 60 games played?

    The 2014 Yanks may be the most overpaid line-up of used up husks in ML history. If they have to pay AROD, it's a slam dunk. Just wow. The Jeter era ends on a whimper.

    It's like they are just committed to over paying him for life


    I understand the AAV thing, but come on. He isn't worth 12 million to anyone else.

    Even when you factor in the reduction in luxury tax the Yankees are still paying him more than last year, which makes no sense to me at all. I think they'll survive though lol

    Need to find a team that is willing to take the garbage.

    God forbid a franchise respect the **** out of a player, a player who happens to be a legend for them in the first place.

    12 million isn't even anything to lose sleep over, he's been worth that with ease and then some in every season of his career except for last year.

    I'd be interested in CC in exchange for WMB, Dempster, and RDLR

    It is when your roster is pockmarked with over priced garbage.

    I've long been an advocate for the Yankees to stage a complete rebuild. Obviously, keep Jeter, but trade away anything of value and eat as much dough as possible and stack the farm.

    But, they will be short sided and continually throw a mediocre team on the field with virtually no chance at winning a championship.

    It's not that hard to understand. The Yankees are looking for ways to reduce their luxury tax payroll to <189M and paying Jeter more allows them to do this.

    Except its a business and they owe him nothing. Their franchise wouldnt give a monkey nuts about Jeter as long as they win. No fan base cares about a player as long as their team wins. Continually over paying for mediocrity is bad business and bad baseball

    Ultimately it reduces the amount counted towards the luxury tax which is what the Yankees wanted. Sure Jeter could have taken less but I don't think the Yankees FO is going to lose sleep over it.
