The Yankes have inquired about signing Furcal to play CF for them next season and beyond. They believe he has the ability to make the move from SS to CF fairly easily. I think it's not a bad idea. Thoughts?
http://msn.foxsports.com/story/5070298Yankees general manager Brian Cashman asked one of Furcal's representatives if Furcal would be willing to play center. Furcal, 28, likely will rule nothing out at this early stage of free agency — he routinely shags fly balls with Braves teammate Andruw Jones and jokes about replacing him in center. He not only is athletic enough to play the position, but also could bat leadoff for the Yankees, forming a dynamic 1-2 combination with Derek Jeter
