Found October 19, 2012 on IT IS HIGH, IT IS FAR, IT IS caught:
PLAYERS: Derek Jeter
TEAMS: New York Yankees
Let's face it: We're stuck with A-Rod, unless he lowers the boom and says he wants to leave. Even then, it's dicey. We cannot spend $20 million per year to pay for another team's thirdbaseman, and that's what it's going to take: A full-scale buyout. But think this: Derek Jeter for two more years at shortstop. It doesn't parse. His legs will break down. His ankles will break down. He needs an easier position. Second base is out. The corner outfield slots won't work. He needs to play third.Think about it.
