Derek Jeter(notes) and his agent, Casey Close, asked the New York Yankees to meet on Tuesday to try and figure out a way to bridge the massive financial gap between their proposals, according to the New York Daily News.
Nothing was resolved and the two sides are still far apart, the paper reports. The Yankees had Hal Steinbrenner, Randy Levine and Brian Cashman at the meeting and one source told the paper it ended with the execs asking Close to contact them about how to proceed. That call did not get made Wednesday, the Daily News reports.
It's not looking good for Jeter's situation to be resolved before baseball's winter meetings start on Monday.
The paper also notes that Troy Tulowitzki's(notes) new deal with the Colorado Rockies that will pay him an average of $15.7 million per season for the next decade has the Yankees feeling pretty good about the three-year, $45 million offer currently on the table for the 36-year-old Jeter.
