Brian Cashman’s comments about Derek Jeter moving to the outfield one day caused a mini-uproar yesterday (and a fun mini-research project). Late yesterday, however, he told Marc Carig of the Star-Ledger that people need to chill. Well, not in so many words, but that’s clearly what he meant:
Later, Cashman said he was dealing merely in hypotheticals.
“I don’t have to deal with that because it’s not something we have to deal with,” Cashman told The Star-Ledger in a telephone interview. “We’ll deal with that if he loses something and forces us to deal with that. That’s not where we’re at.”
Cashman called the exchange a “baseball conversation, not a declaration, not an announcement, nothing of that nature.”
Well, there goes my analysis of Jeter as a third baseman, second baseman, catcher, bench coach, color commentator and beer guy that I was going to write up today. Darn.
