Our long urban nightmare is finally over: yesterday, Derek Jeter and the Yankees finally came to terms on a new three-year, $51 million deal to keep the Captain in pinstripes. There is also a complicated option for a fourth year worth up to $17 million, although there are some conflicting reports about the details of the option. Jeter underwent a physical today at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, the last piece before the deal can be formally announced. The Post thinks the deal has saved Jeter's reputation, while the Times worries about Jeter's physical deterioration. The best thing about the deal was that both sides compromised in the end, according to ESPN. Let's all be happy that what seemed to be inevitable turned out to be just that, and Jeter will end his career a Yankee.
