There was some random talk back at the end of the Joe Torre years that it would be fun to make Derek Jeter the Yankees’ player manager. Setting aside the face that being the manager of the Yankees is more than a full time job and that part of that job is insulating guys like Jeter from scrutiny, that would be fun.
Jeremy Lynn of CSNChicago.com asked Jeter about managing. I’m getting the impression he’s not keen on the idea:
“No chance. No chance. Nada. Zero. No, not a chance.”
So you’re saying there’s a chance? Er,wait, he’s not even doing that.
Which makes sense. Because when you manage a baseball team, there is scant time to make love to supermodels on piles of cash. Just ask Don Zimmer.
