Peter Handrinos Interview

Here is the Handrinos interview. It was filmed with my cellphone so there's a bit of shaking and the audio isn't great. You should be able to hear it, but I may suggest ear phones. This was my first crack at this and hope to have opportunities to do this again in the future. I don't have editing software and the last two questions were cut off. They were as follows:

1. In light of his answer to the last question recorded, what did he think will happen in 2010 when Jeter's contract is up?

2. What did he respect most about Jeter's gangster?

To the first question he responded that he suspects that Jeter will be re-signed. To the second, he expressed admiration for Jeter's career. Peter is definitely critical of the older Jeter, but he definitely recognizes how great he has been and the significance of Jeter to the team and to baseball. He just thinks that shortstop is a young man's position.

I think Jeter will do whatever he wants to do. If he wants to resign he will.

That would be interesting. I suspect he'll be the shortstop after 2010, perhaps on a 3 year contract similar to Posada's or Mo's. Yanks might consider negotiating his contract prior to season's end.
