In an unsurprising turn of events, Derek Jeter‘s agent Casey Close shot down this morning’s report indicating that the Yankee captain wants a six-year deal worth $150M. “The recently rumored terms of our contract extension are simply inaccurate,” said Close to Yahoo’s Tim Brown. Like I said, it’s completely unsurprising. Jeter’s camp had to do some damage control even if report was true, because it’s a simply laughable request.
Barred any breaking news, I’m declaring RAB Derek Jeter-free this weekend. We all need a bit of a break from this circus.
