Except Biggio is a much better athlete/defender than EdE could ever dream of becoming. It's like saying "If Biggio could move from C to 2b, why can't Mesarco or Taubensee?"
EdE had the phsyical tools to be an adequate 3b, that's why Texas/Cincy gave him so much developmental time there. He lacked the concentration and desire to be a good defender. I'm sure that problem would've shown at any position he played.
The best thing that ever happened to EdE was being almost out of a job. That woke him up. That's my theory at least
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
