Great idea! While they're at it, why not move Matsui to short?

Seriously, even though Jeter is overrated at short, he still is a solid defensive SS. But after all, I guess defense has nothing to do with winning championships.:rolleyes:

I would support it, just to make those *******s look even worse when Jeter blows a game because of his defense in center.

If the Yankees could actually find a 3rd baseman or SS who was that much better than they could find for a CF, then isn't it worth considering? It doesn't seem likely that scenario would play out (unless they sign Furcal), but would Jeter be worse than what they've been trotting out there (Williams)? Or, the people to his left and right, for that matter.

I'd say there are some possible, yet unlikely, scenarios where moving Jeter to CF would benefit the Yankees as a whole.

A report published on ESPN....why do you waste your time reading that garbage and it has already been denied by Brian Cashman in a column released by Ken Rosenthal yesterday.

LipTook the words right out of my mouth, Lip. There's not even an author named who would take responsibility for this tripe.

On MSG (NY) this morning, the reporter ~ Torre claims that he was misquoted even though he had mentioned players, Mantle, Murcer, etal who made the transition from ss to cf.

I think Cashman told Torre that Jeter to cf was never going to occur so now Joe is blaming the reporter, the Bronx Zoo in action.

I read Tuesday that this story was based on a report from a Reuters reporter who misquoted Torre. Yankees claim Torre said in response to the reporter's question a Jeter move to center had "not been discussed." Reuters dropped the "not," they say.

The Reuters reporter was on WFAN and says he has Torre saying it on tape.

says the same in the Daily News
The writer of the story, Larry Fine, said he taped the interview with Torre and had no doubts about the accuracy of his quotes. He said he believes he fairly represented Torre's statements and did not overstate the Yanks' interest in pursuing such a plan.

Damn electronic listening devices!

One would think there wouldn't be an argument over being misquoted in a taped interview, but I've heard of worse. I have forgotten the name of the baseball player who claimed he was misquoted in his autobiography.

I was under the impression that Bubba Crosby would play CF unless they found a legitimate replacement?

I was under the impression that Bubba Crosby would play CF unless they found a legitimate replacement?The upside to that would be that they would have a legit #9 hitter.
Come on, Yanks, you know you want him...http://espn.go.com/i/mlb/profiles/players/5884.jpg
Even though I'm sure it's not gonna happen, it's a thought. (and a good one for us)
