Bruce Levine of CBS Chicago says that there's a real high demand for shortstop Alexi Ramirez and the Yankees are one of the teams interested in the Shortstop.
He writes: "The White Sox have heard from numerous major league clubs about the
availability of shortstop Alexei Ramirez, the 33-year-old All-Star who
has been high on the list of several big-market teams. The interested
teams include the Mets, Yankees and Dodgers. All of these franchises are
looking for a reliable shortstop to anchor their infields."
Now, we last heard about Alexi Ramirez when we published THINKING ABOUT SHORTSTOP WITHOUT DEREK JETER in 2013. In it, BYB wrote:
"As (Nick) Cafardo (Boston Globe) stated in his piece (HERE), the White Sox Shortstop Alexi Ramirez would be a great idea for the Yankees: "The Yankees could turn out to be the best fit since they eventually will need a replacement for Derek Jeter,
who could wind up DHing a lot next season. The Yankees may have
problems making something happen because of their weak farm system."
True, Ramirez is a decent choice."
Now he pops up 1 year later, but now Ramirez would BE the shortstop.
We'll have to see if this rumor has legs.
Side note... Jeter played shortstop for the Yankees in all of 2014 up to literally a few days before the last game of the season. Cafardo was pretty wrong about that, huh?
Never under estimate the Captain!
