He can go down to AAA at the start of next season if he needs some more seasoning. I believe he has a bright future as a super utilty player. With that being said, why didn't he start today(9/2/12)? Quintanilla is stuggling and Hughes(RHP) was pitching so the matchup with Andino didn't work out. Buck has benched him several times when he was hot. He had a 4 game hit streak from 7/20/12-7/23/12 and was benched in favor of Quintanilla. Then, he just had a 2 game hit streak on the 24th and 25th and was benched. All of our second basemen have been truly terrible this year, Quintanilla being the best, so why not ride the somewhat hot bat? He plays a decent second base too.

osforlife wrote:He clearly isn't the answer at second base and wouldn't mind him not being on the team next year. Flaherty can do just as good of job. Hopefully, Schoop will be ready by 2014. Next year could be the same thing as this year at second. I see Ryan Adams and Ryan Flaherty getting starts there once Roberts goes down, which he most likely will.

I thought he should of played the NY series with the short porch and all. I could see Flaherty winning that spot in the Spring or after starting the year in the minors....275+ with 12-15 hrs wouldnt be bad at the bottom of the order..
