When it comes to SS.... what is out there and available, and why would you consider AG "table scraps"?
I sure don't.
It fills a very dire need on this team in the form of defense in a critical position.
I agree that WK still has his work cut out for him, as far as replacing some of the lost run production; but he can do that in other areas. Unless you decide to really spend BIG TIME and acquire a Jeter or ARod type who combine both (O & D), then a majority of your today's SS's that are defensive specialists are typical weak hitters. And those that can hit, can't field.
The table scraps comment wasn't directed towards AG. It was directed towards WK's quote about waiting it out and not rushing into anything.
