soft hands.


The Yankees, in the market for a solid defensive centerfielder, did some defending of their own Tuesday, as team officials spent the day insisting they have never discussed the possibility of moving Derek Jeter or Alex Rodriguez to the outfield next season.

It all came about because manager Joe Torre was quoted to the contrary in a Reuters story late Monday, saying, "we've thought about it," and, "it certainly is a consideration." But Torre said through a team spokesman Tuesday that his quotes were misinterpreted, saying they were a part of a casual conversation about a hypothetical situation.

"I can tell you there's no truth to it," general manager Brian Cashman said. "It's not being discussed. It hasn't been part of any organization meetings we've had." [newsday]

  • Good. Jeter in center just seems wrong. I'd miss that turn, jump & throw to first from the hole that he's patented.

    ARod has become a good 3rd baseman. I say let him stay there.
