Jeter Leaving New York?

Say it ain’t so, Derek! The contract of beloved New York Yankees captain, Derek Jeter, is up at the end of the year and while the odds are very high that Jeter will remain with the Yanks, fans have to wonder why Jeter’s penthouse home in New York City’s Trump World Tower is listed for $20 million.

Does it mean he wants out of NY? Is it just a ploy to get contract talks under way? Seems hard to imagine that a $20 million property would move off the market that quickly. But, there is that fine little estate that Jeter is having built down in Tampa Bay (you can see an aerial shot here). Maybe the Yankees captain is tired of city life and wants a trade to Tampa Bay?
