After weeks of negotiating through the media — and occasionally telling said media that the reports that Derek Jeter was demanding $150 million were untrue — the shortstop's agent sat down with the Yankees this week, and after a cordial meeting on Tuesday, the two sides began to make some progress. The Yankees have reportedly upped their original offer of $45 million over three years — an offer that Will believes was way too high to begin with. Oh, and Brian Cashman is preparing to rappel down a 22-story building this weekend, dressed as an elf. Never a dull moment. But what happened this week that didn't involve unnamed sources?
The Giants played half a good game against Jacksonville and won.
Mariano Rivera neared a new two-year contract.
That's it for us. Have a nice weekend.
