Jeter Should be Reasonable

The Yankees have told Derek Jeter to test the market if he believes that exists a better offer for him, and now Hank Steinbrenner was asked how the team will have to pay their stars.

"As much as we want to retain all, we have done very, very rich with these guys, and I do not think we owe anything to anyone at the economic level," said co-owner of The Associated Press. "Some of these players are richer than their bosses."

The Yankees have offered a covenant Jeter three years and $ 45 million, which the veteran is inclined to reject. Jeter comes from completing a 10-year, $ 189 million, earning $ 21 million in 2010.

New York also has a priority re-signing Mariano Rivera and Andy Pettitte, while attempting to sign left-hander Cliff Lee as a free agent.

"We want to retain Derek? Of course you do, obviously," Steinbrenner said. "Obviously we all want to retain Derek and we all want to retain Mo."

The Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has said the offer to Jeter is fair, with some concerns from the standpoint of the team about the performance of present and future shortstop.
