Along with Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter is almost always the most interesting Yankee. He is the team's biggest stars, a legendary figure, in a game built on history.

Jeter is approaching the final chapter of his classic tale. We don't know if it is a short one or if we will still be watching him four years from now. We do know that he had an incredible season in 2012. We also know he finished it sprawled on the Yankee Stadium dirt with a broken ankle.

What type of Jeter will we see in 2013? Wally Matthews looked into that on Tuesday.

Today, I peer even further into the future and examine the implications of a good year and a bad year for Jeter. Please give it a read.
