Speaking to MSG's Jill Martin during halftime of last night's Knicks-Clippers game, Girardi was asked about the chances of Derek Jeter ever playing center field. His response: "You know, I don't know. It'll probably all depend on how long he plays the game. He is our shortstop, and that's what we plan on him being during this contract. But if he plays beyond this contract, it's possible he might play somewhere else." Oh. Which do you think is least likely: That Jeter would play beyond his current contract? That he could change positions at the age of 40? Or that the Yankees really expect him to play out his current contract at short? After all, even Brian Cashman has his doubts about that last one.
