Yankees beware: Jeter's production is likely to decline.

Note: ESPN reports that the Yankees are caving and increasing their three year offer to Derek Jeter by one or two million dollars per year.

For single seasons, From 1901 to 2010, Played 50% of games at SS, (requiring Qualified for league batting title):

Jeter’s 2010 season is one of 60 for old shortstops out of 1,677 for all shortstops since 1901. 60 / 1,677 = 0.0357781753. That puts Jeter’s 2010 season in the top 3.5% based on age.

Based on OPS+, Jeter, among the twenty-one 36 year old SS, is number 27 out of 60 SS seasons 36 or older.
