LADY AT THE BAT: Jeter Will Play Wherever The Yankees Want Him To

Jeter Will Play Wherever The Yankees Want Him To

The contract will get done. If anyone thinks it won't, they're not a  real baseball fan. Derek Jeter will be a Yankee until he decides to retire. The big question seems to be this: Will he remain a shortstop until the day he retires?

I read the article John Harper wrote in today's New York Daily News, where Harper seems to insinuate that Jeter may not leave the shortstop hole without a fight. I disagree.

The only fights that will go on are the ones among fans who debate among themselves over it and maybe among members of the media. Derek Jeter is a team player. He'll play wherever the Yankees want him to play. He may not like doing so, but he'll do it. I find it hard to believe that he'd want to do otherwise.

Harper thinks that all this fighting could go on behind closed doors and that we'll never hear about it.  I don't subscribe to that opinion.  Leaks are way to common in this day and age.

So, the Captain will be at the helm until he decides to retire, whether that "helm" will be shortstop or some other place on the Yankee (Clipper)Ship.

Hey there everyone, I actually sat down and interviewed Derek this past Saturday, check it out on my blog for some interesting info. Maybe a few things you haven't heard him say before too.

Hey Bernadette, I'm just passing through after all these months. Sorry to hear you've been going through difficulties, but glad to see that you still have this blog, especially now that all the boys of summer are running around in the southern climes.

Will try to keep in better touch, and I hope that things are looking up for you soon!

Hi, Faith. Good to hear from you.

You sound busy based on what I've seen on LJ!

Thanks for stopping by and for the well wishes.
