Derek Jeter has been the face of American baseball for nearly two decades. He plays the marquee position for the sport's flagship franchise.

He's still recovering from the broken ankle he suffered during last year's American League Championship Series. Otherwise, he would play -- particularly when considering his friend and mentor Joe Torre is managing Team USA.
In all likelihood, this was Jeter's last chance to play in the WBC. He faces eno...

We're a long way from the days of the Rodriguez/Nomar/Jeter/Tejada days at shorstop, where offense was the primary focus of the position and defense took a bit of a back seat. In 2013, defense is becoming the main factor teams look for when choosing a shortstop, and as a result, the overall state of the position is a bit different than it was a few years ago. Hell, only eight...
