Base Coach, Hitting Coach, Bench Coach, or maybe even Manager. Could you see any of those positions in ARod's future? According to the Daily News, Hal Steinbrenner said it might.
"Hal Steinbrenner said Wednesday during an eight-minute State of the Yankees address with reporters that he could envision A-Rod’s role within the organization expanding in the future, although there have been no discussions between the two sides about specifics."

"Alex is one of those guys that’s always working so he sets a great example for young players. He’s always willing to help. He loves to talk about the game,” the first baseman said. “He’s just a student of the game and, because of that, guys want to be around him.”

@BleednYankeeBlu I love this!!!!! I REALLY ❤ this!!!!— Kim Austin (@austinmom03) January 13, 2017
The idea is not new... but it is smart and couple it with Tyler getting some help from ARod and we could be onto something here. I really believe this is where ARod could come in and help. If he could work with Austin at 3rd, that would help alleviate Suzie Pinstripe's concerns from her fantastic piece YANKEE SPRING STORYLINE 2: WHO'S ON FIRST?

Look, I could be way off on this one. It sounds like a good idea and seems so easy when you're writing it down. We all know it's not but, I really believe Alex could help a lot here. I think they should give it a shot.
Hell, the guy is making $21 million whether he sits around or helps out a little. Let him help! We can't lose!
