One shortstop comes off the board

Juan Uribe has signed a three-year deal with the Dodgers, taking one viable shortstop candidate off the free agent market at a price far lower than the Yankees offer to Derek Jeter.

Uribe reportedly agreed to a three-year deal worth $21 million. [2]

Granted, Uribe is far from a perfect comparison to Jeter — he’s 31 years old and has never made an all-star team, much less flirted with an MVP award — but he does help establish the market value for middle infielders.

The Yankees basically offered Jeter twice what Uribe will be making. A little more, actually.
