He was very pissed off at his press conference. I am sure a lot of his quotes will come out later today.

kudos goes out to Jeter

I wish I was luck enough to be ticked off on the same day I signed a 3yr/$51m deal.

...at 36 years of age in an obvious decline.

What's he upset about? That the extra money he wanted is only the equivalent of feeding 3/4 of all hungry people in the U.S. instead of all of them? If that's what you're upset about Derek, then go **** off.

kudos goes out to JeterReally? Why?

If he didn't like the contract, he shouldn't have taken it. Don't sign it and then act like you've somehow been wronged.

Here's the actual quotes (http://content.usatoday.com/communities/dailypitch/post/2010/12/jeter-never-imagined-leaving-yankees-says-hes-in-middleof-career/1), not as shocking as the OP has made them out to be. The only shocking thing is how much the Yankees paid for Jeter at this point in his career. But, the Yankees always spend a lot of money so this should come as no surprise.

"I'd be lying to you if I said I wasn't angry about how some of this went,", "The negotiations were supposed to be private."

"I'm more angry at the process and how I was portrayed. I heard 'greed.' All of a sudden now I have an ego and arrogance."

"I heard statements saying I have salary demands," he said. "I was in no position to demand anything because I basically said this is where I wanted to be. So, what could I demand?"

"But I've said time and time again, I never wanted to go anywhere. I can't stress that enough."

Exactly. Cashman said that point blank. Obviously, Derek knows deep down that he has always been in the right place at the right time. That's been his biggest strength as a player. Everyone in the league has seen it for years. Now that his greatest skill, hitting, is in decline, he has little tangible value. Alex Rodriguez calcifying next to him with way more money doesn't help either. Ironically, he really looks like a baby holding a case of Enfamil.

The OP is using his posts here at WSI to audition for a job as a headline writer at the National Enquirer, or any other check out line tabloid. Keep that in mind with any thread he starts.

I agree. This is also why I have a different view of the Putz situation than most people here.

So, is "Is ticked off" the same as "I was angry...?"

I don't blame Jeter for saying he was upset that things went public, but come on now. It doesn't sound like Jeter was pulling an Albert Haynesworth here.

Seconded.

For everything I hear about what a stand-up guy he is, this is just ridiculous, IMO.

Well, the person who started the thread has a nasty habit of posting misleading thread titles.

He's so pissed at the Yankees that he took big bucks from them just for being a shell of his former self.

Shut up and count your millions, and display that ill-deserved Gold Glove you got just by name recognition.
