• Cashman Sending A Message To Jeter?

    Brian Cashman:

    We’re not going to be interested in getting players just because of future milestones. It’s about what they can do in that win column.

    Source: Here and here.

    I mean, really who else can that “future milestone” reference be pointed at?

      Cashman was in NO WAY sending a message to Jeter. Since it as assumed that Jeter will be resigning, Cashman was qualifying the impending deal by pointing out that they are resigning Jeter because they believe that he will be productive, and not just so that he can reach a milestone.
      Even if it were Cashman’s intentions NOT to resign Jeter, there is no way that he would diss him in such a fashion.

      I don’t think it was a direct ‘Fuck You’ message to Derek… but I do think it was a ‘be reasonable’ message. A ‘Winning comes first… so don’t ask for too much more then you are worth’ kind of message.

      Yeah, ok…..within five minutes of Jeter’s 3000th hit, YES will be broadcasting ads for Steiner Sports selling YS dirt from the game for $199.95…….Jeter’s 3000th hit will pay for his salary next season with all the marketing they’ll end up doing over it.

      So, let me understand the consistancy here w/ Jeter or anyone else as compared to Arod’s contract:

      $30M marketing agreement based on home run milestones ($6M each for reaching 660, 714, 755 and tying and breaking major league HR record)

      I’ll help you understand, redbug.

      The translation is:

      Hank negotiated that deal.
      Cashman’s negotiating this one.

      @ redbug:
      A lot of life is good timing. A-Rod had impeccable timing, having his contract come up in the one and only season in which Hank was allowed to run the ballclub. Jeter’s timing isn’t nearly as good, apparently.

      Yep. Also lucky (or PED’d) to have a peak year in his opt-out year.
