    For a guy with so many GG's it is amazing how poor his D is, especially his range.

    He certainly looked bad last night.

    That's a very good idea--hopefully JF is reading. The concern is Jeter will bunt to get on unlike Ortiz or some other hitter.

    The Yankees will have Brendan Ryan off the DL shortly--he is as good a SS defender as Drew and within a 10 point range batting . I would consider moving Jeter to 3B and I think Jete would move when Ryan gets back. 


    Many more nights like last night and I think he would move for the good of the team.


    The AJP grounder up the middle had a lot of "english" on it--that was not as easy a play as the average viewer thinks. Pursuing the ball and a side spin--I don't think he ever touched the ball.


    He has been great to watch for a long time--this is a Sox fan writing. I'll never forget the effort he made against the Sox at the Stadium, with Nomar looking on from the dugout, diving head first into the boxes after a foul ball. He's some competitor.

    I just think the NYY are too anal to move him.

    While his defense now is awful, I'm amazed he's playing as well as he is.


     


    I doubt his ankle isn't zinging him.

    He's a Yankee legend and a Hall of Famer and deservedly so, but can they really continue to let the man play SS?  You saw it tonight.  It was not pretty. 


    [/QUOTE]


    one of those throws should have been caught by Tex.  The glove sweep by tex was ugly. Not sure if that was last night or the night before.  He is ok and it will take some really off the mark throws to get him out.  Plus he has had seasons of multiple errors even in his youth.

    Joel Sherman:


    Michael Pineda’s 10-game suspension ends Tuesday. The Yankees can return to a 25-man roster. It is likely the addition is going to be Brendan Ryan.


    Once that happens, Girardi will have to decide how often Ryan plays shortstop in place of Derek Jeter.


    In any other year, that would be a no-brainer. Jeter is among the best hitters ever, certainly on the short list at shortstop. Ryan is among the worst hitters of recent vintage — his .619 OPS is second-worst among active hitters with at least 2,500 plate appearances.


    But, at present, Jeter is hitting like Ryan — his .582 OPS ranks 172nd out of 187 qualifiers. And if that is the case and you believe it is going to continue, then there really is no comparison defensively — Ryan is a whiz and Jeter, well, the best you can say is if the ball is hit at him, he will make the play.


    Understanding the explosive nature of the storyline, Brian Cashman told me “I am not going there” in discussing whether Jeter needs to be dropped from No. 2 in the lineup or turned into less than a full-time shortstop or even whether Ryan simply needs to play defense late in games the Yanks lead.


    Cashman spoke broadly about there being a number of issues he is focused upon. “I am not going to talk individually about my state of concern about Derek Jeter,” he said. “I don’t want to feed those flames. The questions you are asking have a chance to play out in large, so I am not gong there. We are obviously always analyzing every aspect of the club.”


    When I asked, however, whether Girardi has autonomy with who hits where in the lineup and who starts — and who doesn’t — the Yankees general manager responded with one word: “Yes.” So, remember, Girardi was the manager who transitioned Jeter’s pal, Jorge Posada, from catcher to part-time catcher to DH to bottom third of the lineup. All against Posada’s wishes, often to Posada’s fury.


    On April 12, Jeter did not start against the Red Sox, and when asked if this was alienating fans who bought tickets hoping to see Jeter for the last time, Girardi made news by saying, “I wasn’t hired to put on a farewell tour.”

    Agreed.  If a person were trying to make the case that the GG is a joke award Jeter's performance would be the first exhibit. 


    Sometimes the GG is given out almost as a position-by-position MVP award and sometimes it appears to be a Lifetime Achievement  Award.  Whatever, it doesn't have much credibility as a fielding award.


    Having the right to do something doesn't make it the right thing to do.

    The Gold Glove Award is about an authentic as ARod's Home Runs, Pettite's Wins, and oh yeah Jeter's "Jeffrey Maier" HR


     


    Anyways, hope he puts up a big fight w/ Mgt to remain a SS/#2 hitter.  Even Brian Roberts is a better hitter than Jeter and he's not even a major league hitter............

    For ARod and Pettite?  That goes back a long way.  Jeffrey Maier had nothing to do with his injury (one of the most sickening things in baseball I have ever seen was when his daddy put him on his shoulders and everyone treated him like a King).........Brian Roberts hasn't been a ML hitter for years.  Hard to say "pre-injury" b/c he's had so many but for a few years now and certainly today.

    Hmmm...OPS race between Jeter and Roberts shapes up as a good battle this year. :-)


    Much as I'd like to, I wouldn't write off Jeter with the bat just yet.

    agreed.  there was that year a few years ago that he got off to a terrible start and yankees fans were actually booing jeter.  yup, they did.  they boo'd the great derek jeter.  he ended the year with pretty close to his "norm".

              Jeter fans (and I'am one of many) can only hope that his last season ends with dignity which btw is slipping.

    The best part is that he will the Gold Glove this year


    That way we can really just completely ignore that award altogether; especially the other ones he has handed out

    I'm wondering when Girardi gets off the anal wagon and plays Ryan at SS. I also believe Cashman whispers in his ear, or Jeter would be demoted sooner. Play him at DH if he starts hitting, or tell him to take grounders at 3B; that's what HOFers Ripken and Rizzuto did, and Ripken by the time he was 30-ish.

    I tend to think it would be different if Smilin' Joe wasn't his ex-teammate. 


    Bad for yankee fans, great for us.  Let the Jeter Farewell Tour continue.  Bat him 2nd and play him at SS.  I can almost guarantee you that is VERY IMPORTANT for Jeter's mental legacy; so he can say he stayed at SS and in the top of the order all the way to the end; unlike Ripken, Trammel, Yount, and others.....


    But to play him at 3B would be nuts - you need to hit to play 3b.  Jeter should be used sparingly.  Really as a back up.  Even Yaz was regulated to Pinch Hitting in his last season.

    I think you mean Designated Hitting?  You made me look it up.


    Old Yaz managed a 266/359/408 (767 OPS/106 OPS+) his last season with 10 HR, in 437 PA's, at age 43.  Not bad.
