The past few days, most of the conversation about Derek Jeter’s upcoming contract has centered on dollars, not years.
The guesswork seems to begin around $20 million: He’s either coming back at that number, or for a little less, or maybe a little more. No one seems to be guessing too far from that figure.
But the years matter, too.
Today, Jon Heyman wrote that there are some in baseball who believe Jeter will look for as many as six years. Heyman believes the Yankees will offer three. Personally, I’ve been expecting three or four.
How many years is Jeter worth? Could the dollar figure drop so low that the Yankees would be willing to go six or more?
