    Rob Neyer

    We can finally put Derek Jeter's new contract to bed, as Jayson Stark has details of the incentive clauses that might escalate his 2014 salary from $8 million to $17 million: Jeter is guaranteed salaries of $15 million next year, $16 million in 201...

    Rob Neyer

    Today's links are actually a little full of themselves. I'm not sure why. Granted, today there are more of them than usual. But more isn't always better ... What's that? You're hoping the Yankees don't sign Derek Jeter and instead your favorite ...

  4. Jeter's case springs from the heart

    Rob Neyer

    Another from the mailbag about The Most Important Negotiations Ever: Rob, as a lifelong Yankees fan and Derek Jeter admirer, I have a question for you. As a purely baseball matter, its fairly obvious that a 3 year, $45MM contract offer is pretty...

  5. New deal for Jeter was never a sure thing

    Rob Neyer

    This, from the Times' Michael S Schmidt, is the best analysis I've seen yet of The World's Most Important Negotiations: Derek Jeter's agent, Casey Close, is currently asking the Yankees to agree to a new contract of either four or five years at $23...

    Rob Neyer

    Today's links aren't really trying to sell books or anything, even though we're entering a highly popular gift-giving season ... When MGL gives a little sabermetrics lesson, it's worth learning even if a little hair gets mussed up along the way. ...

  7. Should Jeter want to be modern Babe?

    Rob Neyer

    Yankees fans who argue that Derek Jeter should get whatever he (and his agent) want haven't yet come to grips with the paradox they've created. More on that in a moment. First, Jeter's agent: "There's a reason the Yankees themselves have stated ...

    Rob Neyer

    Today's links were compiled by a Bipartisan Blue Ribbon Commission, which does not mean you should completely ignore them ... I've done you and The Platoon Advantage a disservice this fall, by not calling out their daily SweetSpot Network roundup...

  9. Gold Glove results mixed, as usual

    Rob Neyer

    I have to get this out of the way ... Yes, Derek Jeter has just won another Gold Glove. It's his fifth, which means he's now won at least four more Gold Gloves than he's deserved. By any stretch of the fever-crazed imagination. Just to give you...

  10. Will Yanks replace Teixeira with shortstop?

    Rob Neyer

    Talk about adding injury to insult: Mark Teixeira left the game in the 5th inning with an apparent hamstring injury after running out the back end of a potential double play. Multiple beat writers have now confirmed that Teixeira does have a hamstr...

  11. Texas manager makes relievers look bad

    Rob Neyer

    There were any number of moments, Friday night in the heart of Texas, that could have gone another way. If the right moment or two had gone another way, the Rangers might not have blown their five-run lead and gone from the driver's seat in this seri...

  12. Jeter's next deal won't be about the money

    Rob Neyer

    Reuters talked to a couple of sabermetrically inclined analysts about the sort of money that Derek Jeter's likely to make with his next contract: Jeter could increase his value with an exceptional performance in the remainder of the playoffs, espec...

  13. Monday Mendozas

    Rob Neyer

    Today's links all have been implanted with microchips. So if one of 'em gets lost, we'll find it ... I don't have any idea if Bobby Valentine will finally manage the Marlins, or some other club. I hope so, though. Baseball's more fun when Valent...

  14. Ripken wouldn't have done what Jeter did

    Rob Neyer

    Yet another friend -- and yes, I really do have three friends (if just barely) -- writes: Cal Ripken once said that he told base runners to stay on the bag, when an Oriole teammate was planning a hidden ball trick. Junior said that even if a hid...

  16. Indict Baseball rather than Jeter

    Rob Neyer

    I was waiting for a relatively sensitive take on this thing, for me to piggyback on. So I'm grateful to Alex Remington: All the way back in April, I wrote about an incident in which A.J. Pierzynski faked being hit by a pitch and went to first base....
