From the Beckett Blog, a baseball card we probably will not see in 2011. But given the Nationals recent habit of claiming to make serious offers to every top-name free agent on the market, doesn’t it seem a bit suspicious that we’re not hearing any chatter from the front office about Rizzo making a play to bring Jeter to Washington? Especially since, as a crappy fielder who seems to think he’s the second coming of Ozzie Smith, Jeter would be a perfect fit with the Nationals’ middle-infield corporate culture. But nope, not a word. When it comes to Jeter, the Nationals are not just quiet but perhaps even … too quiet. If we don’t re-land The Dunn, could Jeter be the Nationals fallback option?
No, of course not, but isn’t it pretty to think so?
