08:26 AM ET 09.01 | Derek Jeter, Mr. November, opens September in a slump, which may have implications when it comes to re-signing him in the offseason. Jeter may be the ultimate team guy, but two former teammates believe that when it comes to getting paid, his pride will demand that he get something approaching A-Rod money, regardless of what he hits this season. "It's up to [the Yankees]," one former player said. "Knowing Jeet, he's not going to let an off-year, if it turns out to be an off-year, play a role in what he thinks he should get paid. He just doesn't think like that. He'll be more convinced than ever that he'll come back and hit .330 next year." The second former teammate essentially agreed. "The question is whether [Brian] Cashman and the others think this is the start of a decline," he said.

He is going to get 4yrs/100m - you heard it here first.

It very well could be. I don't think he'd ever play anywhere other than with the Yanks, but he's not going to get paid as much as he thinks deserves.

My favorite is the outtake they decided to use where he looks at the camera and says "I don't even know what this is"

NY should give Jeter 6 yrs @ 30 million per. Anything less and they're cheap.
