It was funny, but I really hope no one thinks this was actually him...



- Hard worker, especially when grossly overpaid
- Great leader, with a willingness to eat up as much payroll as possible
- Highly motivated by winning, and even more so by $25 million
- Experience receiving large sums of money for no apparent reason
- Willingness to jump while throwing the ball, no matter how unnecessary
- All-time Major League leader in intangibles
- Not A-Rod

What are we supposed to be bitter about exactly? That the Yankee's will overpay for Captain Intangible? Or that the face of your franchise could very well sign with another team. It's a win/win for me


David Ortiz ring a bell, what are you guys paying him this year??

Not as much as what your going to pay Jeter. Ortiz makes $12.5M. Jeter is laughing at $15. Ortiz actually had a pretty good season last year too, other than the first month.

I don't understand the need to take shots at the Red Sox, when they weren't even mentioned

Im fine with overpayinh him. He deserves to be overpaid and at the end of the day were still way better than the Redsox and still World Series contenders.

The whole thing with Jeter, imo, is that I feel he has ALREADY been overpayed. The Yanks do that for their players. Remember, the contract was until he was 36 yrs.

How many teams pay as much as they gave Jeter AND into the player's 35th, and 36th birthday?

How many teams would pay a player that is washed up (mostly) $15 million a year for 3 years for his 37th, 38th, and 39th birthdays?


He's already been overpayed and is going to be overpayed in that 3yr/$45 million contract. That is the Yankees being nice to their vets. Like they did to Lou Gegrigh. Like they did to Babe. This is not only overpayment, but also cherry, cream, and some of the best champagne to put on top of the overpayment.

Jeter, though, is just looking at the contract Arod got (which was at age 32 btw) and just can't let it go. He has never been better (intangibles, yes, but not better) and in no way is he 32 right now.

Referring to the list of posts addressing the above comment, I would have responded as well but they seem to have covered every angle, and remarkably well.

Do you think before you post, or do you just respond in anger when you read something you don't like? (It's okay, I already know the answer) Simple solution? Don't let the crap piss you off, and you won't wind up in the middle of so many pointless pissing matches.

Ortiz is still coming off hitting 28 HR and 90 RBI and it's only one year. They would never give Papi a 4 year deal at 15-20 million per year right now he's just holding the DH spot for a year then it's good luck in the future David. The Yanks are famous for bad contracts.

not 25 million....

Not to mention Ortiz actually plays DH and doesnt hurt his team with his less than stellar range like Mr. Jeter. Then there is the whole part where Ortiz outproduced Jeter by a lot.

Ortiz:137 OPS+, .270/.370, 32 HR and 102 RBI, 86 R
Jeter:90 OPS+, .270/.340, 10 HR, 62 RBI, 111 R

Ortiz was a MUCH more productive hitter last year and btw the cost of his this year is 12M for 1 year....and yes I'm a Red Sox fan. I would also vote for Jeter on the 1st ballot for the hall of fame if I had a vote.

The problem with Ortiz is that he cant play defense. Even though a guy like Jeter, or ever Arod now for that matter dont play great defense anymore, they still free up the DH position and give their team flexibility, so if the yanks have an extra bat to work in they can, or if they want to give posada a rest but keep his bat in the lineup they can do that too

HMMM who would I take.

Easy, I Would Take Jeter.

You Red Sox Homers are failing to realize that Jeter plays in the field, Big Sloppy does not. Ortiz is a DH in the heart of the order and Jeter is a 1 or 2 hitter, thats why he has more RBI's. Jeters average was .270 with 10 homeruns & 67 RBI's not the same stats you stated :facepalm:

Jeter--
Hits: 179
Runs:111
Also Led The MLB in Putouts.

Ortiz:
Hits: 140 [39 Less Than Jeter]
Runs:86 [25 Less Than Jeter]
Also Didnt Make a Single Play In The Field.

The Red Sox are also not about to make millions or david ortiz's 3,000th hit. David Ortiz also hasnt gotten the red sox 5 world seires titles. David ortiz also doesnt play the field. David ortiz also isnt a first ballot HOFer.

Look its plain and simple. Derek Jeter deserves the money. He was underpaid the first contract he had when he helped the yanks to several titles. 96 98 99. he has also made the yankees money that they will never be able to pay him back in jersey sales t shirt sales and fans as well. sellout exc. People pay for Jeter. the fact of the matter is the yankees will make all the money they pay jeter back in selling his merch.

One of the biggest things the Yanks get by resigning Jeter in my opinion is way less distraction. Just think about had they not signed him - the constant questions about leadership, everytime the Yanks drop a few games the questions about the effect of losing Jeter's 'intangibles'. By resigning they avoid a huge headache. With that being said, overpaid. lol.

For the same reasons Ortiz gets more HR's and RBI's are the reasons Jeter gets more Hits and runs scored.

Why does Derek Jeter deserve that much money for his past achievements? He should be thrilled that some team is willing to pay him $15M/yr for the next 3 years for something he did in the past. I find it rather humorous that he wanted $25M/yr due to A-Rod's contract because he's no different than a child wanting legos because one of his friends got legos.

So Derek Jeter made the Yankees money so the Yankees need to pay him back? What happens when grossly overpaid players fail to make the team any money and don't live up to their contracts? Should they be forced to pay the team back?

Underpaid? LOL, I don't know where you're getting your ideas from but the Yankees paid him handsomely throughout his years as a Yankee.

Given the choice, I'd rather overpay a productive Ortiz $12.5M for one year than a declining Jeter $15M for three.
