Well according to Beane they're going after every short stop they possibly can
I've heard Peralta, Drew, Nakajima, and Escobar but he was traded to the Rays.
In order I prefer Drew, Nakajima, and then Peralta.
We know Drew plays good defense and is at least average with the bat.
There's been questions about Nakajima's ability to play defense at SS and how his game would translate to the MLB.
I think Drew would be the safer choice.
I really hope we resign Drew and McCarthy, then just made a bunch of small moves at other positions. We don't need to make a big splash.
If we resign McCarthy our rotation would be
Anderson, McCarthy, Parker, Milone, Colon. And Griffin and straily as our 6th and 7th options. That'd be a great staff. Maybe Griffin will start over Colon, idk.
