Derek Jeter Shows Interest in Houston Astros

11/16/2010 2:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

So, there we were ... face-to-face with Yankees free agent Derek Jeter in L.A. yesterday ... but when we asked what it would take to get him on the Dodgers -- dude seemed to be focused on Houston.

Jeter spent his afternoon in Pink Taco (naturally) ... and rolled out in a super expensive Maybach (also naturally).

We're guessing it's only a matter of time before he gets another fat contract with the Yanks.

Send him to Houston so his horny azz can rest on a farm but leave that saddle-bag girlfriend in LA with the other circus freaks.

In My Own Words    

Derek Jeter has said in interview after interview through the years. He is a career Yankee and ALWAYS will be a Yankee. He has been quoted as saying he would retire first before playing for any other team. End of discussion period.

Ugh.., I became Yankee fan last year BECAUSE of Derek Jeter.
I don't know what to do if he quits Yankees. I knew his contract is over this year, so I had to see him at ballgame, so I went to Texas for seeing him at ALCS, but I hate Texas!
Anyways, I was at ALCS game 1 Yankees vs Rangers. Yankees were losing and I couldn't belive it after I flew all the way to see him!!! At 7th innning, when Derek Jeter was on the dugout, I screamed " I love you Derek Jeter! I LOOVE YOUUUU!" but Derek was strike out. However Other Yankees scored 5 points!!!! I realized my love made a bit of difference. If Derek quits Yankees, I will not go to see another Yankee game period!

Derek Jeter is going no where!! He doesnt want to go and the Yankees dont want him too either!!
Everything else is just a formality..They will work out something for the both of them to be happy!!

I DONT EVEN GIVE ANY OTHER NEWS ABOUT IT A SECOND THOUGHT CAUSE ITS A WASTE OF TIME

Derek Jeter will be a Yankee until the day he can no longer breathe. Jeter is the definition of a franchise player and it's absurd to think that he would play anywhere but the Yankees.

Even if history is in favor of the Yankees letting him go, as they did with Craig Nettles, Derek Jeter puts fans in the seats and is the face of baseball. How many other players will always say the right things at the right times?

All in all, in a season where he could possibly reach 3000 career hits, you know he will put fans in the stands. As the numbers also prove, he is ahead of where Pete Rose was at that stage in his career.
