      That’s less than I’d offer him (I was fine with the 3Y/$63M report from yesterday’s story) but, if this is the offer, it’s a very fair one.

      Jeter won’t find any offers for $15M/year out there on the market so he can make this as easy or as hard on himself as he likes.

      Fair offer – Take it or leave it. The Yankees shouldn’t go any more without seeing some other teams offer for more.

      Damn, but Jeter should sign soon. The offer’s gone from $63 million to $45 million in one day.

      I give little to no credence with anything that comes from Heyman!

      It is still one year longer than I would go. There is no other team out there. Let the market drive the process.

      Look it’s the Yankees money, but I have to agree with Scout on this one. The idea of overpaying by this amount for Jeter makes no sense. There is no market here. Yesterday I pegged Jeter’s value (bells and whistles included), between 30 and 35 million for the Yankees. No other team would come close to that. His open market value is about 20 million, maybe, and let’s be clear, that’s for two years. No major league team would give him three years.
