Or how about we deal with another year of the Andino's, Flaherty's, Tolleson's, Quintanilla's, Robert's of the world until Schoop comes up.

A great game for Ryan today. He may be forcing a platoon at second.

He's been very impressive how he has come in off the bench for extended periods of time and contributed. Good for him.

I look forward to seeing him next season with a full year under his belt with the club.
I think people were writing him off too soon about being on the 25 man roster next season. I see no reason why he couldn't fill an important role next year.

I see RF headed for the minors next year to work at 2B and develop his skills further. 8-)

I think he should be given every opportunity to win the 2B job next year. He has shown he can hit when given the chance and his defense is PLUS.

We only have a few pieces we could trade this winter and I think there are bigger priorities than 2B.

Unless Roberts retires no way PA will allow a trade for or free agent that is costly. PA has shown he doesnt believe paying for nothing (Gregg situation).

There are bigger needs. I would like to see them get a Defesive Wiz that could hit at least .250. Send Flaherty to the minors to just play 2nd for the first month and a half. I see him as a .275+ hitter with 12-15hrs and plus, fundamental D.

I thought he should of been platooning ever since he came back from inj rehab. I just dont see the love for Andino. Nice error today by the way. Very costly. 7 stranded runners in the 9th spot today and 4 Ks..Flaherty will only get better.

I was thinking along the same lines.

I was thinking he could be a Ben Zobrist type player with not as high of an OBP. So like .270 hitter with 20 bombs a season playing like 6 different positions. I'am not sure what I would do with Ryan next year. I certainly wouldn't want him to be in another situation next year like he was this year. I'd like him to be playing everyday somewhere, at multiple postions. Roberts will probably be ready to go for Opening Day 2013 so the FO and Buck will give him every chance to play second before he gets hurt. Then something along the lines of Adams, Flaherty, Andino, etc. I agree RF should be playing second vs Righties.
