A matter of years

ALCS Rangers Yankees BaseballWhen discussing free agency, we seem to spend most of our time talking about money. How much is a player worth? How much will he want? How much is too much?

Inevitably, the years become just as important.

The Yankees have already run into years gap with Derek Jeter. They want to sign for three years, he’s reportedly interested in at least four. Mariano Rivera apparently wants two years. There were early reports that Cliff Lee might be looking for seven years — which never seemed likely — but today Ken Rosenthal reported that even Lee’s representatives don’t expect that many.

So the question is: What’s your limit on the top free agents on the Yankees radar?

Andy Pettitte will be a one-year deal or none at all, but what about Jeter, Rivera and Lee? For how many years are you willing to be tied to those players? How long until they’ve exhausted their value?
