Since ARod is out... Teixiera to 3B?

Postby stumpak » Thu Mar 05, 2009 1:49 pm

With ARod out for the first 1/3 of the season, is there any chance that the Yankees decide to move Tex back to 3B and go with Damon/Swisher at 1B? Tex has not played 3B in about 5 years, but he was a decent fielder back then (although not as superb as he is at 1B).

I don't see it happening, although it would get Swisher regular playing time.

If A-Rod was going to be out for the whole season, I could see them toying with the idea. Even then, I'm not sure they'd do it. They spent a lot of money on Teixeira to play first and it's his best position, I just can't see them disrupting Tex's first season in the Bronx with a position switch.

I heard the White Sox were moving Sheffield back to SS and Babe is gonna try pitching again.

No. Good thought though. But no.

Maybe the Yankees can get Jon Daniels to call up Jeter and arrogantly inform him that he's being moved to 3B? ;-)

Not gonna happen.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

They better not. I just traded Berkman away in a keeper because I had Tex at 1B...

That would be an EPIC steal of a WW pick up.
