Yankees come to terms with Derek Jeter

After a month long shouting match, the Yankees and Derek Jeter seemingly got the contract done in a matter of seconds once they actually sat down to talk for real. Jeter will sign for 3/$15-$17mil with a fourth year option that is neither vesting or a club option.

This is an AWESOME deal for the Yanks. Yes, he IS being overpaid. But $15-$17mil per year was as high as the Yankees should have gone. I’m glad Jeter and his agent cooled their expectations of $23mil+. Now the world can carry on.
