Cashman: Jeter could move to CF

Yankees GM Brian Cashman, in an appearance on WFAN in New York, suggested that while Derek Jeter will be the Yankees' shortstop in 2011, he believes that a future position change is likely. When that happens, Cashman believes that Jeter will shift to center field.

 

“I like corner outfielders and corner infielders who have power, so for me, if [Jeter's] ever gonna move, it’s probably gonna be a Robin Yount situation. But we don’t have to deal with it at this point,” Cashman said, in remarks detailed by ESPN.com. “We’ll deal with it when we have to.”

Ward: Savard understands 'risk he's taking'
By: DJ Bean

Former Bruins defenseman Aaron Ward joined the Dale & Holley show on Tuesday to discuss the status of B's center and former teammate Marc Savard. The team announced Monday night that Savard, who missed the first 23 games of the season with post-concussion syndrome, had suffered another another concussion on Saturday vs. the Avalanche and will be out indefinitely. 

 

Ward told Dale Arnold and Larry Ridley there isn't much Savard can do to prevent further concussions, and he doesn't feel the Bruins should take any extreme measures when it comes to handling Savard this season.

 

"No," Ward said when asked whether the Bruins should shut Savard down for the season to be safe. "I was in Boston, and you have great doctors [there]. You have Mass. General doctors, everybody involved, they're smart people. They went to school for umpteen years to qualify and be able to assess these players. The relationship...

Boggs, Ripken join International League HOF

Wade Boggs and Cal Ripken added to their Hall of Fame resumes. The two players, whose careers landed them spots in Cooperstown, were elected to the International League Hall of Fame for their excellence while in Triple-A.

 

Boggs spent both 1980 and 1981 in Pawtucket, where he hit .322 with a .418 OBP, .416 slugging mark and .834 OPS. He hit just six homers in Triple-A, but in 1981, he developed extra-base power as a 23-year-old, hitting 41 doubles for the PawSox. He led the International League in average (.335) and doubles in 1981.

 

Ripken joined Boggs in the International League in 1981, hitting .288 (fourth in the league) with a .383 OBP, .535 slugging mark and .919 OPS with 23 homers and 75 RBI, finishing in the top five in most offensive categories despite being -- at age 20 -- the youngest position player in the International League.

 

Boggs and Ripken both participated in the epic 33-inning game...

Mashup: Jets' Cromartie has new target

Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie, last heard around these parts blasting Tom Brady in the press and then helping his team knock off the Patriots in the playoffs, has a new target. While cleaning out his locker Monday following the loss to the Steelers a day earlier, the free agent expressed anger over the looming lockout.

 

"To tell you the truth, they need to get their damn minds together ... and just get this [expletive] done, and stop bitching about money," he said of discussions between the union and owners. "Money, money ain't nothing. ... Money can be something that can be here and gone."

 

Added Cromartie: "You've got our head union reps acting like an a--hole, and they got their guys acting like a--holes. They just need to get their [expletive] together and get it done."

Welker: Press conference 'just not worth it'

Speaking to the Boston Herald, Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker said that he did regret executing a press conference leading up his team's game against the Jets in which he made numerous references to feet in a perceived attempt to mock New York head coach Rex Ryan. The interview session resulted in Welker being benched for the first series of the teams' playoff game in Foxboro.

 

"I’m not going to get into any details about it, but I don’t think it’s worth putting coach (Belichick) in that situation," he said. "So in a sense, I do regret it. ... As much as you might want to get enticed into that stuff, at the end of the day, it’s just not worth it."

 

Welker, who spoke while awaiting a flight to Hawaii where he will be playing in the Pro Bowl, relayed that it is sometimes...
