Is Derek Jeter heading to the Boston Red Sox? C’mon, really? Can this happen? Dollars to donuts I get that this is such a long shot but such a transaction would make me chuckle beyond belief and all the while it would probably send some of the fellas in my fantasy baseball league (and die hard Yankee fans) to drive off the cliff (much like Toonces the Cat of SNL fame).
Truth be told I have nothing but respect for Derek Jeter for what he’s accomplished with the Yankees (how could I not? I also have nothing but envy because have I mentioned a million times who he’s about to marry?). If I had my druthers it would be my wish for him to resign with New York. In this day and age of sport it would appear that it’s becoming rare for an athlete to play his entire career with one organization, so I’m all for a great like Jeter going off into the sunset with Yanks.
However if his contract negotiations take a turn for the worse, nothing would be finer than seeing the Rob and Jay (aka the Del Collusion brothers) and Mr. Kostyk weep with the thought of Jeter finishing off his hall of fame career with Red Sox. The subsequent conversation at the draft table would most definitely be worthy of a live blog.
If the Jeter to the Red Sox is too far-fetched of an idea for these gentlemen to get their heads around here’s a website that offers a few more destinations for Mr. Jeter.
