Derek Jeter wants Alex Rodriguez type money

It seems that Derek Jeter has lost his mind.  Jeter and his agent are currently in contract negotiations with the Yankees for a new deal.  The problem is that right now, both sides are $80 million apart.  Jeter wants a 6 year, $150 million deal and right now, is unwilling to budge on the $25 million per year.  The Yankees are offering a 3 year, $45 million which IMO, is more then fair enough for a guy who is on the decline in his MLB career.  If Derek Jeter ends up getting $25 million per year, then Albert Pujols should get $50 million
