    wow. I personally think it would be worth a shot. Although i dont think his range would be very good, but it would be better if Rich stayed (move him to 3rd). Edwin played SS his entire life til Dayton I believe. I wouldn't mind him at 2B either, and BP as SS.

    a lot of major league players played SS in high school. good athletes play ss or cf in high school. however EE is NOT a major league SS. if he fixes his throwing problems he could be a very good major league 3B. his reflexes are good.

    He range is ranked among the worst at third, so no it wouldn't be a good idea.

    He is? Where did you see/hear that? I, and many others on this board have been under the impression that he has excellent range.

    Hmm, no. His range is among the BEST in the majors.

    Anyone who says this has never watched him play in person. I know that eyes can be deceptive to stat guys and that stats don't lie and all but his range is obvious. In fact I totally believe that his errors are more than made up for by his tremendous range.

    Train your eyes for judging defense. Compare players. And you will learn that EE has tremendous range, a strong arm, and good hands. No reason to mess with a sure thing at third.

    Exactly FCB. I think sometimes in this era of ball fan's can forget just how truly valuable and rare a truely excellent 3b is. I mean, in recent years we have Arod, Chavez, Wright, Rolen, Ramirez, perhaps even if you consider Caberera - that you forget before that time there were how many true great players at the hot corner? Schmidt and Brett? Sabo? :

    It depends how big he gets. Right now I think he could do it, but who knows how big he will get.

    Honestly, he needs to master his throwing before we think about moving him to SS though.

    I think he could do it, but I'd rather not try.
