I guess where I'm coming from on this argument is that I don't think Reds fans have any room to talk, right now as it stands, about horrible SS options. I think the above poster is a bit harsh considering that there are a lot of teams with worse players playing on their team. Heck... the Mets just signed Rick Ankiel as a CF option and I certainly think Kozma is a better starter than him. I'm also scratching my head at the "isn't much of a rangy guy" comment. He's currently putting up a 1 UZR right now and put up a 2.6 UZR in limited time last season at SS. While he isn't an elite defensive SS like a Tulo or a Brendan Ryan, the numbers suggest that he does have above average range for a SS.
