New Yankees GM quotes about his 36 year old star and Yankees legend Derek Jeter.
"We've encouraged him to test the market and see if there's something he would prefer other than this. If he can, fine. That's the way it works." the GM acknowledged that "defining 'fair' is a real issue here." Do we want to treat Derek Jeter fair? Absolutely. Do we want to be treated fair at the same time? No question about it.'' "We're going to do everything we possibly can to put the best winning team on the field," "We would like Derek Jeter to be a Yankee and we're making our best efforts to keep that in play. But it takes two." "I think every negotiation is different and every negotiation is difficult," he said. "Every negotiation you have to have hard conversations and some of the negotiations conclude in a successful marriage. Others don't. That's the way it works." The GM added.
