Say it ain't so, Jetes!
Derek Jeter has signed a contract with the New York Yankees through the 2013 season AND he has an $8 million player option for 2014…but that may not be enough to keep him with the Yanks!
During a recent interview with ESPN's Rick Reilly, Derek was asked if he could envision himself in another uniform, to which he replied the following (brace URselves, Yankee fans):
"Well, if I wanted to keep playing, yeah. It's a business. People forget that."
Hmm…we wonder what team he'd go to if he left the Yankees. Maybe the Lakers would want him???? JK!
Here's what GM Brian Cashman had to say when asked about a potential move for Jeter:
"No comment necessary."
An understandable response to such a question! It's pretty much unfathomable to imagine the guy on another team!
We'll cross our fingers that Derek Jeter continues his long-term relationship with the Yankees! We can think of a few die-hard fans who would be pret-ty pissed if he left!
What do U think? Any chance Jeter will jump Yankee ship???
