Hal Steinbrenner on the upcoming Derek Jeter negotiations:
“There’s always the possibility that things could get messy. I know our fans are emotional and that’s what we love about them. But I’ve got to try to do my job on behalf of the partnership and the partners and everybody else involved in the organization. Hank and I need to keep a level head and realize that we’re running a business here.”
This is where things get interesting. Yes, Jeter will be back, but I can’t imagine that the Yankees are going to do this quietly. Hopefully, the Yankees won’t give him something he doesn’t deserve.
