Who Would You Feature at 2B and SS?
Who would you feature at 2B and SS the rest of the 2012 season? Why?

For me it doesn't really matter since I don't expect anyone on the current roster to be playing there in 2014. Jamey Carroll, Pedro Florimon, Alexi Casilla, Brian Dozier (AAA), and Eduardo Escobar (AAA) are the only 5 options right now. Carroll is gone after 2013 and is an old man. I don't expect anything bright from Florimon. Casilla's future is a big question mark. Both Dozier and Escobar have proven they aren't competent at this point and I wouldn't want to see either back in the bigs just yet. I guess I'd say Casilla at 2B for sure and a rotation of Carroll and Florimon at SS.

Twins have 6 players for 3 positions next year, TR needs to sort this out as there will not enough spring training AB's to make choices. Dozier is strugging, so give him a breather and see what Floriman can do. Doubt he will hit as well as Dozier can, but if he is a much better fielder, he has a chance. Nishi is gone, but will probably be given a look next spring, need to find out if Casilla should be kept. I believe the infield next year will be Dozier, Carroll, and either FLoiman or Escobar.
