With the Yankees in Chicago to play the White Sox the local media asked Derek Jeter what he thinks about former teammate Robin Ventura becoming a manager in his 40s.
Jeter praised Ventura, saying his laid back demeanor is right for the job, but then made it very clear he has no plans to go into managing once he retires:
My temperament would be all right to manage. But I’m not. No. Write that down. I will not manage.
Rarely do truly elite, Hall of Fame-level players get into managing. Jeter as manager with Alex Rodriguez as the hitting coach and Andy Pettitte as the pitching coach could be interesting, though. And maybe make Jorge Posada the bench coach or something. Bring the whole band back together.
