That's the year Derek Jeter's contract is up with the New York Yankees. After that season, Jeter can presumably, and likely will, walk away from the game of baseball. He has a player option for the 2014 season which will likely be picked up, but after that, who knows what'll happen.
Of course, Jeter could very well get another contract from the Yankees or, Babe Ruth forbid, sign elsewhere. For the purpose of this article we're assuming that Jeter, at the age of 40, will no longer be with the Yankees.
That means the Yankees will have the daunting task of replacing an icon, a hero, a legend. They need to replace the guy who played shortstop for them for 20 years.
The Yankees can look to free agency, trades, overseas, or internally with their farm system to replace Jeter. I'm here to list the chances that the 10 best potential replacements have of being the next shortstop for the New York Yankees.
While no Yankee fan is ready to imagine that day yet, we're jumping into the DeLorean for this one and heading to 2014.
