When's the last organization that didn't have more than one player who could play shortstop?

Embarrasing.

We also feature the deepest kiddie pool in the tri-state area!

The Tigers don't even have one. They guy they have pretending to be a SS is about to get a long, unpaid vacation.

In my book, Crede has 2 less home runs than his statistics show, 4 less RBI, and one less walk (the one where he pinch hit for Uribe after coming in with a 3-0 count and taking one pitch).

That shouldn't be a consideration. You move anyone moveable with a good return given the state the team is in. A cheap SS could be picked up off the scrap heap.

Exactly. Beckham, when healthy, can be moved back to SS, plus we have some middle infielder types in Charlotte who could man the spot on a last place team.

I'm pretty sure that Keppinger could play shortstop just as poorly as he plays 2B or 3B or 1B. He's versatile.

If he's not moved himself, yeah. It would probably be Gillespie at 3B, Keppinger at 2B and Beckham at short for the rest of the year.

And we think our D is bad now....
But I certainly agree, getting a SS back isn't a consideration. We can find one on the scrapheap.

Yeah, but we need to figure out if Beckham can be at least average there. I actually see that working.

Keppinger would just be a place holder until one of our 2B is ready to come up.

Default The Sox rejected a trade of Alexei Ramirez to the Cardinals

This was reported on MLB Now this afternoon. It is also on MLB Trade Rumors. The trade would have been for minor leaguer Carlos Martinez..

Nevermind. I just realized that this thread is already in What's the Score. I'm not sure why it is there, though. If MLB Network is reporting it, it is likely more than just a rumor.

The MLB Network is just quoting a Tribune rumor. There is no proof.

Someone leaked something to a reporter, or it wouldn't be reported. My guess is that the Sox are trying to drive up Alexei's trade value.

Doesn't the Tribune employ Phil Rogers? It's probably all made up.

Didn't you say claims that Beckham's defense were good at second were excuses made by Beckham apologists, and now you want him at SS?

edit: now that I think about it, that may have been TaylorSt.
