‘Angry’ Jeter inks dotted line

The Yankee captain might be back in pinstripes, but he isn’t happy about how the process went.  

The Yankee captain might be back in pinstripes, but he isn’t happy about how the process went.
Derek Jeter, who signed a three-year deal worth $51 million yesterday, with an option for a fourth year, vented to the media.

“The thing that bothered me the most was how public it became,” Jeter told reporters in Tampa.

The shortstop said he didn’t want to become a free agent and even told his agent not to take calls from other teams. And he never made any kind of salary demands.

“I wasn’t negotiating with anybody,” he said.

Despite batting a career-worst .270 last season, Jeter said he doesn’t plan to retire anytime soon.
