Nomar to Play Second?

Me and my friend Seamus were talking about this weeks ago. Today, I saw an article from the New York Daily News that throws the idea out there.

All-star shortstop Nomar Garciaparra has told friends he would be open to a position change to either second base or third, which could open the way for the Yankees to pursue the free agent as a second baseman.
The Yankees’ top offseason priority is improving their starting pitching, but if they signed Garciaparra to play second, they would have all of the famed “three shortstops” playing in the same infield – Garciaparra at second, Alex Rodriguez at third and Derek Jeter, who won his first Gold Glove yesterday, at short.

I am intrigued by it. Posada, Giambi, Garciaparra, Rodriguez, Jeter, Matsui, Beltran, Sheffield, Bernie would be a … pretty good lineup. I like the fact that Nomar has a good arm, as well. Hopefully it would be less wild from second. Interesting…
