The concrete bomb barrier that is Derek Jeter on June 1

Can we come to grips with the fact that Derek Jeter will need a defensive replacement this year, and we still have nobody?

By May whatever, when Mirror Lips returns, Jeter's fielding could be a daily back page soap opera.

Tell me again why we traded Alberto Gonzalez? Was it the firing of the U.S. Attorneys?

Yes, it's traitorous to talk about replacing Jeter. They'll come with torches and burn down the blog. But why have not gone out and sought an infield leatherman other than Angel "the Bowling Pin" Berroa? (Alias, The Second Coming of Wilson Betemit.) The gloves were out there. Nick Green, for example. With the bat, he's incontinent. But the guy can field.

Ninth inning. One run lead. Does Joe have the guts to put in a replacement for Jeter?

Or are we purposely not signing somebody, so he can't be second-guessed?

M. Pena.

Watch him.

With all due respect, Scout Fonzy, it's R. Pena. I wonder if he can do the Jeter Flip. If so, he's our replacement.

Mark my words, A-Rod and Jeet will switch places by July.

R. Pena ??? RRRRR?

As in Ramiro?

As in red, right, returning?

OK. I'm not good at details. And I'm not that good at big picture things, either.

However, as far as gut instinct....

Thanks, SHE-Fan
