Derek Jeter's name has been in the headlines recently for all of the wrong reasons. First it was for his inability to hit anything other than a ground ball to the second baseman. Then it was for his backing of Jorge Posada and telling reporters that he had nothing to apologize for, which didn't sit too well with the big boys upstairs.
Would Yankee management ever consider bringing in an apparent heir to the shortstop throne after all of this controversy?
With Jeter past his twilight and a possible replacement in the farm system not knocking at the door, the Yankees might need to try to work their midseason magic.
The real question is, who could fill this void?
