This must be Yankees week, with back-to-back blog posts on Yankee stars. Yesterday, we wrote about star third baseman Alex Rodriguez dropping the price of his Coral Gables mansion and now this from the Tampa Tribune: Yankee star shortstop Derek Jeter is building a monster-sized home in Tampa.

Designed with a whopping 30,875 square feet of space, the seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom waterfront home dwarfs nearby mansions and could end up the largest home in Hillsborough County. It’s roughly the size of a BestBuy electronics store and twice the size of the previous No. 1 house, just across Hillsborough Bay on Bayshore Boulevard, owned by Lazydays RV SuperCenter founder Don Wallace.

Jeter’s home, which is described as English Manor-style with lots of gables and stone work, is located on the Davis Island neighborhood of Tampa.
