Torre’s ‘Athletic’ Comment Misinterpreted; In Other Words, Still No Moves Made
Tuesday, November 29, 2005
If you’ve stopped by a baseball forum lately - - Baseball-Fever.com is the Yankees Chick’s fave - - I’m sure you’ve read all the hoopla regarding Joe Torre’s alleged consideration of moving one of his infielders to fill the hole in the outfield. In the Reuters report, writer Larry Fine portrayed Torre as mentioning shifting A-Rod or Jeter to centerfield as a viable option for the Yanks this off-season. When prompted by Fine as to whether moving an infielder to the outfield would be an alternative to the slim pickings left on the free agent market, Torre responded "that's happened before, hasn't it? Bobby Murcer, Mickey Mantle. Hank Aaron came up as a second baseman. Robin Yount went to center field…” To the dismay of all the crazed bloggers and forum posters, what Fine failed to include in his article was the fact that Torre was simply stating players he sees as athletic enough to make such a transition, a list that included Mariano Rivera, A-Rod and Jeter. He is denying that he ever alluded to any plans of shifting A-Rod or Jeter to the outfield.

Whether or not Torre and Cashman would actually consider making a move like that, the idea is pretty intriguing. Granted, moving one of those two to the outfield is probably less likely than Joe Torre himself suiting up and hitting the field, but considering our other non-options I wouldn’t rule it completely out. When they finally hire the Yankees Chick as GM I’ll let you know….

    ESPN's SportNation poll on the baseball page is asking the question about whether or not Torre should move Jeter to center field.

    Apparently people aren't as dumb as they look, because it's 3 to 1 against right now. :)

    but its a moot point, because torre never said that it was an option!
