Over at Beyond the Box Score, Satchel Price previews the shortstop market.
Beyond Jimmy Rollins, who I examined recently, Rafael Furcal, Erick Aybar, Marco Scutaro, Jamey Carroll, Jed Lowrie, Alex Gonzalez, and Clint Barmes stand out as intriguing names.
how aboiut a trade with the Mets who have a surplus of position players and desperately need pitching. The Giants could trade a pircher and get a couple of position players.
OF that group only Lowrie sounds interesting…maybe J. Sanchez and aptbnl could swing a trade…
Yeah, Lowrie would be a very nice acquisition. I think Rafael Furcal is another name to really keep in mind. Injury-prone — meaning he’ll be somewhat cheap, and he’s really played well over the last few seasons (with the Cards this year, for example).
