When a man's down...

Kick him hard... real hard.

From today's Rob Neyer chat on ESPN (behind the Insider curtain):

Brian (Villanova, PA): Please answer this, how cool would it be if the Yankees decided to go with Arod and move him to Shortstop and traded Jeter to another team, then he came back and helped his new team beat the Yankees in the playoffs? Then Jeter could finally be loved by non-Yankee fans, this has to happen

SportsNation Rob Neyer: Well, leaving aside for a moment that the Yankees would not trade Cap'n Jetes, I don't think Rodriguez can play shortstop any more. Not unless he lost some weight and dedicated himself to learning shortstop again.

Now that the Yankees have made one choice, the media pressure is only going to grow for one man - at least till the Yankees lose a couple of games in April to the Devil Rays.

Oh imagine the the media blitz if the Yanks did trade Jeter. Cashman would need monumental balls of steel to pull that off.

Its about as likely as...well its just not going to happen.

Well obviously but if by some incredible miracle of Biblical proportions it did happen, imagine the uproar. Would it be the biggest deal ever?
