ph_424324This could very well be the day Derek Jeter officially re-signs with the Yankees. If that happens, it could easily overshadow anything else that happens with the team down in here in Florida.

Then again, there’s always Cliff Lee.

Jeter is the Yankees icon, but Lee is their primary offseason target and Ken Rosenthal reported last night that there are some who expect Lee to receive a seven-year offer. The Yankees don’t seem likely to offer that many years to a 32-year-old.

It’s easy to look at Jayson Werth’s seven-year deal and believe that creates precedent for Lee, but Werth is a year younger and a position player. Cashman made it clear yesterday that Werth’s deal will have no impact on his offer to Lee.

“I know what and where we’re willing to go,” Cashman said. “It’s not going to impact us.”
