Jeter To Third?
Everyone knows Jeter's mobility is less than in days past and that no one stays at shortstop forever. The best way to replace A-Rod (if God willing he opts out), would be to slot Jeter at third and bring in that hot minor leaguer (Sanchez?) that everyone is high on. Would Jeter do it? Why not? He knows he'll extend his career by going to third or the outfield. He's been the shortstop for 12 seasons. But getting him to switch, heck ASKING him to switch would be a lot easier with Torre at the helm. Just one more complication from dumping Torre this year. Firing Torre last year would have been a lot better from a team perspective.
