08:46 AM ET 11.09 | Legends just don't come on the cheap. Derek Jeter is going to be paid Ryan Howard money for putting up Marco Scutaro numbers. "The Yankees are going to overpay him," said a source with intimate knowledge of the discussions between the team and Casey Close, Jeter's agent. "The question is, how much are they going to overpay him?" Several sources told ESPNNewYork.com on Monday that while the Yankees have yet to make a formal offer to Jeter -- or to Mariano Rivera, their other high-profile free agent, not to mention Cliff Lee, their primary target in the free-agent market -- offers are currently being prepared for all three. And the one that is likely to get done first is Jeter's, possibly before Thanksgiving, with Rivera's soon afterward.

Thats the good news, the bad news is they are being replaced by Rosie O'Donnel and Keith Olberman.

Ryan Howard money for Marco Scutaro numbers. I think that encapsulates nicely the Yankees free agent strategy.

Ya mean we don't have to listen to Morgan busta knut everytime Robinson Cano turns a double play or gobbles up a routine ground ball? "Just look at the way he glides to the ball, glides to the ball..."
