As to Jeter not moving, I still crack up that the best SS in the league plays 3B for the Yankees.
Speculation in my office is that George is going to grab Renteria from the FA list and convert him to 2B so the Yanks can have three gold-glove SS's on their infield. Sounds crazy, but two years ago would anyone have thought about A-rod playing 3B in New York? Stranger things have happened!
