Yesterday, I asked Yankees fans this question: "How would you describe Derek Jeter in 140 characters or less?" (the 140 characters because the question was asked on Twitter).

Derek Jeter 23

This has been a topic of discussion in Yankees land today, and some Yankees fans (myself included) believe it would be a better move to have the struggling Derek Jeter (who hit .207 in August) move down in the order.
