A-rod shortstop eligibility watch.

Postby Fantasy Guru » Sun Jun 12, 2005 12:23 am

In leagues where he has to start 5 games, or play 10, he needs to play in 7 more.

..sure it's only 3 games over the course of 2 and 1/2 months, but even a month of A-rod at SS would make me happy.

C'mon Jeter, sit a few games out!

Theres only one problem if Jeter missed a game Sanchez would start at SS.

Arod plays third, his position, bottom line.

Doesn't mean that A-rod won't get some appearances at SS. Seeing as he already has.

I will have Tejada on my team.. pretty soon. As well as A-rod. I figure.. if A-rod ever DOES gain SS eligibility, Tejada will be expendible. I'd probably be able to get Johan Santana for him.

Don't get your hopes up. he needs 7 more appearances not 3. He has 0 starts at SS and will never get a start there, even if Jeter is hurt. It's possible they may need him to play a couple innings a couple more times over the season, but 7 more is very, very unlikely and I'll guarentee it.

Well, if I own Tejada and A-rod, I shouldn't complain anyway.

In my Sportsline league, he only needs 2 more appearances for eligibility ;-D

Not counting on it, but it would be awesome...

Never say never.....Jeter could fall on the stairs carrying his deer meat home or fall out of bed with whatever hot chick he's rockin it with and be done for the year or more. Naturally as an ARod owner with Uribe at SS, I pray for this nightly.

I could only see the Yankees moving ARod to short if Jeter was out for a loooong time, or suffered a career ending injury, both of which I find unlikely.

Um, except for the fact that you're overlooking Sanchez, who would be the starter at SS, not A-Rod.

A-Rod is a 3B. He isn't a backup SS. They traded for him to play 3B, they aren't going to shift him to SS just because Jeter's gone a couple of months. That's idiotic.

Exactly what I've said to this question in the other 4 threads earlier and still no one seems to get it.

Alex is the starting 3B. If he plays he will always play 3B because that is his position. He will never start at SS as long as Jeter is on the team (healthy or injured) because that's not his position.

Just give up these hopeless dreams that Alex will play SS everyone. This should have been a dead topic half way through last season :-[
