    From “The Street.com” -

    XM Satellite Radio signed New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter as a spokesman.

    The Washington, D.C., pay radio company said Jeter would promote XM’s baseball broadcasts and make regular guest appearances on XM’s baseball channel. The deal also includes a partnership with the Turn 2 Foundation, the nonprofit organization founded by Jeter to promote healthy, drug-free lifestyles and academic achievement for young people.

    “To help extend the lead of a winning team like XM is a terrific opportunity, especially since I am a huge XM Satellite Radio fan,” Jeter said. “I am excited to share my enthusiasm for XM’s unmatched Major League Baseball programming and unprecedented choice in news, talk, entertainment and, of course, commercial-free music.”

    I hope that Derek has seen Play Misty for Me, Talk Radio and, of course, Private Parts.

    Somehow, knowing how “safe” Derek is with his public comments, I doubt that XM’s verison of Kenny “Pig Vomit” Rushton will need to sweat this one too much.

      Read Jayson Stark’s column on ESPN.com today. Looks like a little-known clause in the CBA allows every team except the Yankees and the Red Sox to spend as much as they want in 2006 and not be luxury-taxed. Apparently any team that was not penalized in 2005 (and only the Yankees and Red Sox exceeded the payroll limit)is free to splurge. Now, obviously most teams will adhere to their own internal budgets but Omar Minaya must feel pretty good. Unfortunately, he’s having a hard time convincing anyone to wear orange and blue. It’s stuff like this that makes me mourn even more the passing of Doug Pappas…boy would he have been on top of this.

      The Red Sox seem to have pulled the trigger.
