MLB Rumors: 10 Reasons Derek Jeter Will Get His Way With Yankees

Derek Jeter is a free agent for the first time in his storied MLB career, and unless something changes, it seems like he will remain a free agent for a while.

So why is Jeter going to end up back in pin stripes, and how is he going to do so on his own terms and not the discount the Yankees are trying to give him?
