Jeter $50 Million Offer Not True

Now, I'm getting dizzy.

Less than an hour ago, George A. King III of the Daily News reported that the Yankees have not increased their original offering on a $45 million, 3-year deal to $50 million to Derek Jeter. King cites a "person with knowledge of the negotiations."

The Jeter negotiations have by far, driven the baseball world into a tizzy. This is the second time in 2 weeks that a report of a contract offering to the Captain was debunked. As I posted in To Be Or Not To Be?, it appears that the Yankees and Jeter's camp have made no real ground in this saga, and it will be awhile before a resolution is made. I wouldn't be surprised at all if the Yankees sign Cliff Lee and Mariano Rivera to deals before Jeter.
