2009 35 New York Yankees $21,600,000
2010 36 New York Yankees $22,600,000


2010 OPS+, WAR,:

Tulowitzki 138 5.6
Ramirez 124 3.5
Jeter 90 1.3

2011 salary:

Tulowitzki $5,500,000
Ramirez $11,000,000
Jeter:
- $15,000,000 offered by Yankees for 2011, 2012, 2013
- $25,000,000 asked by Jeter for 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016

Any Yankee fan who asks why the Yankees are being so petty and/or asks why don't the Yankees just pay Jeter $20,000,000 per season is an idiot. Overpaying Jeter and Rivera ($250,000 per inning in 2010; WAR 3.0) reduces Yankee resources to acquire players who can provide much more to help the Yankees continue winning.

Yankee GM Cashman should let Jeter sit by his phone waiting for offers ... well into January. None will come close to what the Yankees have foolishly already offered. Cashman should sign Cliff Lee using money he saves by not overpaying Jeter and Rivera and let other teams pay them.

Both Jeter and Rivera should receive the same offer form the Yankees: one year, $10,000,000.

If they don't like it: see Johnny Damon for advice.

Tulowitzki's salary in 2014 will be almost three times that in 2011. Colorado may want to dump Tulowitzki before that and before Tulowitzki becomes a free agent in 2014.

Ramirez's salary in 2014 will be more than 50% higher than that in 2011. Florida may want to dump Ramirez before that and before Ramirez becomes a free agent in 2015.
