If the Yankees manage to "Magic" ARod off their roster (and I hope they don't) would Jeter be willing - and able - to move to 3B? At his age he's probably not going to be Brooksian at third, but his glove and arm are still sound so if his reflexes are up to it perhaps that would reduce his defensive liability but keep his leadership and offense at the forefront.
Comparing the Yankees and Red Sox this season is a study in both futility and stupidity. The New Yorkers won the AL East (again) and they won the division series. We won NOTHING!!!!!! We've won nothing the past five seasons and this year we stunk to high heaven. There are no blessings in disguise that pollyannas and rumpswabs can cling to. We are doing things that are no longer working and we have men in the front office who are either arrogantly incompetent or just plain incompetent. Unless Prune Face wakes up and addresses this dysfunctional team we will be talking about this same topic next October. The front office and ownership has to wake up.
The season ended over two weeks ago and so far the team hasn't done a dam@ thing. No releasing of some of the stiffs, no trades, no manager. This is already starting to look a lot like last season's aftermatch to me. The team must get busy now.
You talking to me? What does my question about Jeter/3B/2013 have to do with your rant?
