Derek Jeter was a guest on Squawk Box and talked about getting into ownership of a MLB team. His goal with that is to help the game grow and bring sexy back to the game, via CNBC:
"I think baseball is taking somewhat of a back seat to some of the other sports," said the ex-Yankees captain and shortstop, who retired in 2014 after a 20-year career with the team. "Some of the other sports are the sexy sports."
"I think kids, nowadays they look at players playing in college and the next year they're in the NFL or the NBA," he said. "Baseball, you sort of get lost, because you have to play in the minor leagues for a little bit. Kids in this generation are into instant gratification."
I love the shot at the dumbass kids who are into instant gratification. I'd also love to see him own the Yankees so he could fire Joe Girardi's sorry ass.
But as Jete acknowledges, owning the Yanks is unlikely.
