Derek Jeter Gets Contract, Expresses Frustration

Yankees finalize $51 million deal with Jeter

      TAMPA, Fla. (AP) – Derek Jeter can admit it now: He was
definitely getting steamed at the New York Yankees.
      While Jeter tried to keep talks quiet and let the sides
negotiate behind the scenes, the Yankees went public with
suggestions his increasing age and decreased numbers should result
in a pay cut.
      Jeter said Tuesday that he got miffed after Yankees general
manager Brian Cashman said the longtime star should explore other
options. Jeter says he was “pretty angry” at that remark and let
the Yankees know it.
      All sides seemed happy after the Yankees and their All-Star
shortstop announced a $51 million deal for three years.
