    Shortstop of the future

    Does anyone know if Royce Clayton is signed past this year? I have always liked Cesar Izturis of the Dodgers. Much younger version of Clayton, great fielder, average (hitting) stats for a shortstop.

    Brandon Phillips is the SS of the future. Period.

    I just don't understand why he couldn't have been the SS of the 2nd half.

    The bigger question to me is 2nd baseman of the future....

    Brandon Harris, Olmedo, Bergolla. Are any of these guys going to be ready to step up next year?

    I fear for the future.

    Brandon Phillips or bust.

    I like Paul as well. Not sure why. Maybe it's just because I watched the CWS that year.

    Unfortunately he might not ever have a stick good enough for the big leagues. I would love to eat crow on that thought.

    Move Rich to SS for this year...then EE, Hatte, and Rich can all play.


    This isn't that difficult.



    Next season, Brandon Phillips takes over.

    Wouldn't take the pitching staff long to not like that move.

    It's the only way to get all 3 bats in there at the same time, unless you put Rich at 2nd and move Phillips to SS now...

    Phillips should get the shot next season.

    Yep. But I also read a rumor where TB's Lugo may be available.

    Re: Shortstop of the future

    Can someone please explain to me why BP can't move over to SS in the middle of the season? It's not like he hasn't played there before. Then, Aurillia, Hat, EdE and Freel could all be in the lineup without a huge defensive liability.

    Re: Shortstop of the future

    I prefer Phillips as a 2B. He seems to have hit his stride there and, long-term, 2B is the place I'd like to keep him (though he'd be my SS with the current Reds roster).

    I remain smitten with Erick Aybar.
