Tony-OH Posted December 26, 2007 Share Posted December 26, 2007 LH will be fine at SS next year if you really consider and appreciate that in true rebuilding mode of a bad team, many playing next year will simply be placeholders until more players emerge through the farm, trade, or FA.We should be grateful it seems almost a certainty that we have someone for SS who can catch and throw - LH is way better than what we might otherwise have at this stage. This is a good point. Now, I would prefer a better SS for next year and still hold out hope the Orioles will get one, but if Hernandez's defense is that good, in a rebuilding year, is it the worse thing in the world to give you pitchers the best up the middle defense you can get? However, if this is the case, the Orioles can't go into 2008 with Payton/Redmond platoon in center because that would certainly not be good defense out there.
