Video: Jeter’s interview with MLB Network (UPDATES with Hank Steinbrenner comment on Jeter’s future contract)
We made fun of talked yesterday about the random comments from Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti on the Yankees spending habits (and the expectations that come with the dough), so I thought it might be interesting to hear Derek Jeter talk a little about that concept from a player’s perspective. Turns out, that was the first question Harold Reynolds asked Jeter during a recent sit-down.
UPDATE, 5:20 p.m.: Hank Steinbrenner resurfaced today and made some comments to the AP in Tampa about the Yankees offseason moves (he likes them) and their chances next season (he likes them). Steinbrenner also talked about Jeter, who already working out at the team’s complex, and had this quote about potential negotiations with the Captain once his deal expires next year.
“We’ll get into all of that eventually,” Steinbrenner said. “Jeter’s place in Yankee history is obvious, so I think you can pretty much assume from there.”
