Although Derek Jeter had the worst season of his career in 2010, and with his best days behind him (because CI turns 37 next summer and that is how the aging process works), he and his agent began contract negotiations at six years and $150 million -- $25 million per year, the second-highest annual salary in the sport's history!
Daily News columnist Bob Raissman rightly labelled that suggestion as "delusional". Now comes word from Jeter's agent, Casey Close, that the 6/150 report was "inaccurate". What Jeter has actually proposed to the Yankees, according to a source, is more like $22-24 million per year for five seasons. Which is far more reasonable.
