Isn't it strange that the Yankees seem to go out of their way to NOT let A-Rod play any shortstop? Jeter played 154 games last year. That means there were 8 games in which the Yankees needed a shortstop and how many games did A-Rod start at short? None. Zilch. Zero. A-Rod played 2 innings at shortstop last season. I think it's universally agreed upon that A-Rod's a better shortstop (uh oh, I can hear the Derek Jeter Lovers already), but the Yankees won't let him play there, even with Jeter not starting.
Roger Angell: I was talking with Bob Gibson and I said: 'Are you always this competitive?' He said: 'Oh, I think so. I got a three-year old daughter, and I've played about 500 games of tic-tac-toe with her and she hasn't beat me yet.'
