Betemit is goign to be backing up Jeter, they have been working him in at SS. Not a bad idea since Jeter very rarely takes a day off and they can always call up the mexican mall lawyer if disaster strikes.
I think he accepted an assignment to AAA, though. People were assuming he’d exercise his clause that allowed him to declare free agency if not on the 40-man by last night, but I could swear I read he didn’t. Maybe on mlbtraderumors? RAB?
It’s good to have a utility INF who can play multiple positions. Most guys I would expect to be better or worse at one position that the other. It’s been said that Betemit is better at the corner positions than up the middle, but I don’t know that Jeter really needs a specific backup coming off the bench.
If Betemit (or some other utility guy) can backup 3rd better than he can backup SS, then play him at 3rd and move A-Rod over to SS for a game or two if needed. A-Rod might be the best backup SS in the history of the game. It’s been a few years since he played there regularly, but I’m pretty sure he can still handle that kind of a switch if he had to.
He moved over there to fill in before and he did WAY better than Miguel Cairo could have done.
I was just going to post that it’s sad to see the Yankees release nice guys (you know, ones who aren’t buttheads or felons). Sometimes they’re not very good or there’s just overcrowding, but it seems like playing for the Yankees is the ultimate dream. So it’s sad in that sense to see a dream die.
Given that neither Giambi nor Duncan are particularly good, I feel like Ensberg or Betemit’s greater agility would outweigh lack of experience most of the time.
Giambi’s actually good at picking bad throws. He won’t do much else for you, though he’s also got the most experience and probably won’t do stuff like make an effort on a ball that the 2B needs to handle, or NOT make an effort on a ball that he could have gotten but thought the 2B should handle…if you can follow my run-on sentence
Duncan’s more agile over there and has a better arm, and seems ok at receiving throws, but we’ve seen him make the wrong call on grounders a few times. We’ve also seen good plays. I figure Betemit and Ensberg would be about the same…though, perhaps a few more wrong decisions, but also few more agile plays. I know Betemit’s not some super-slick glove man, but given that he can handle 3B and SS, I still have to give him the innate-agility edge over Duncan. Similar logic with Ensberg…He’s a good fielding 3B, I’m pretty sure. But Duncan’s greater experience at the position would probably help him make the wrong decisions less often.
That’s all I got. Some of that is based on what I saw this spring of Duncan at 1B and what I saw of Wilson over there last year. I only saw Ensberg over there VERY rarely, so that’s pretty much pure speculation.
I’d like to see if JG thinks an infield with A-Rod at SS and Betemit at 3B is better than the other way around. I’m sure Alex could still handle SS better than any substitute infielder in the league.
Aside from the obvious point of it being Jeter’s team when A-Rod arrived, I think a small part of why A-Rod was better moved to 3B instead of Jeter was that A-Rod was probably better suited to make the switch than Jeter.
That may be an incorrect guess on my part, but it’s worked out pretty well for the team the way it has.
Of course A-Rod wouldn’t be the all-star SS he used to be if he hopped over to Jeter’s position for a game or two. As was pointed out he’s not used to it anymore. Just saying I think he’d be better than a regular backup.
I was talking about Philips being oblivious to the fact that the Yankees had a large fanbase in Japan back in 2004 most likely in support of Hideki Matsui. At the same time I admit that there are plenty of Japanese Red Sox fans out to support Dice-K and his new team, as well they should. I never said anything about â€œghostsâ€ or â€œhaunted soulsâ€ in the American League East because that wasnâ€™t my point. The Red Sox have won more titles and out done the Yankees in recent years and deserve credit, but I wasnâ€™t talking about the actual teams, just as Hank Steinbrenner wasnâ€™t. Hank made comments about the fanbase and how the Yankees are globally the most popular team in terms of fans and the Yankee brand which he claims is a fact, whether this is true or not I donâ€™t know. All of that being said Steve Philips is still, in my opinion, an idiot and I’m looking forward to a season of battles between the two most popular teams in sports.
No Deal(cant ever wear it). The only trash i talk is about 1 guy. You cant tell me you dont hate his antics sometimes. I know he’s on your team and all but its like having Farns on your team. When he talks you cringe.
My count is 40 players in camp, 41 if you count Sean Henn. I suppose 42 if you count Joe Muich coming in when Cervelli went down. Alberto Gonzalez was sent to the minor camp days ago according to Chad Jennings but I don’t think it was officially announced. However counted, about four cuts per day over the next four days…
For the last three spots in BP, I’m going with:
Ohlendorf or Bruney
If Ensberg is on, there is no more space for position guys.
(I’m late, but whatever). Alex played SS for part of a game last year after Jeter came out. I forget who they shoved at 3B, but whoever it was, they weren’t confident he could play SS. It was only for an inning or two, but he was pretty good for that short time.
mel: Honest answer is, I don’t know. Outside of the Yankees, the NCAAs and the Devils (who are a legitimate playoff team, if they ever decide to win a game again), I’ve not had time to follow anything. Most people up here are much more interested in college basketball, at any rate, though Syracuse made me cry last night.
I agree that Jeter’s fielding skills have eroded. However, he is still an important offensive player – 200 hits a year is tough to replace. Yes I know he has a penchant for GIDP- but on balance he has come through. So, is anyone serious about replacing Jeter on the left side of the infield?

Aw, this was a very nice post. In concept I wish to put in writing like this moreover – taking time and precise effort to make a very good article… however what can I say… I procrastinate alot and by no means seem to get one thing done.
Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players.

Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate.
