“These moves give us a lot of flexibility,” Girardi said in a pregame news conference. In the approximately eight-minute question-and-answer session with reporters, Girardi used the word “flexibility” six times. He scored points by staying on point.
Girardi mentioned he could play Drew at shortstop and Brendan Ryan at second base on days when Derek Jeter rests. Prado could give his fellow newbie, Chase Headley, a blow at third base, and Headley and Ryan both could help at first base. Headley, too, could assist in the outfield, if needed, although he doesn’t seem enthusiastic about such an endeavor and reiterated Friday with multiple nice plays that he plays a very impressive hot corner.
For Stephen Drew's .169 batting average? No thanks.
You can't believe Drew has done anything this year to put anyone on the bench, except perhaps himself. If he can't play 2nd base, he'll sit; but given the competition at 2nd, he'll probably play quite a bit.
Since the All-Star Game:
Stephen Drew .214/.313/.429
Derek Jeter .306/.370/.408
Not seeing much of a case for making a change. Besides, there's more of a need for Drew at 2nd.
What is the deal about out of position?
Stephen Drew has never played anywhere but SS. True
but neither has Jeter.
