For several pages now you seem to be trying to make the argument that changing positions is a smaller deal than sitting out a couple of games a year... That's possibly the stupidest argument in this entire thread... You should be taking advantage of the fact that nobody has responded to it, but you keep belligerently pointing out the stupidest thing anyone has said in this whole thread of stupid things...
Clearly you're stupid if that's your interpretation.
I never said switching positions was easy. But selfless players do it for the betterment of the team (Ripken, Cabrera, etc., etc., etc.). Jeter never did.
No player is going to remove themselves from the lineup completely because they feel an 0-fer coming on. It's not even remotely the same comparison, and if you think it is. then you're as dumb as Mike and tec. And I have a few things I'd like to sell you.
And I'll say it again, since people like you clearly can't read - Ripken's DEFENSE was never a liability to the team. So even if he didn't get a hit in a game, he was always adding to the team substantially on defense. Jeter isn't. If he doesn't get a hit, he adds zilch to the Yankee lineup. So tec's argument that Ripken was hurting his team if his bat was slumping is by far the most absurd thing in this thread so far.
