I don't get the love for Casilla. As a second baseman, he's substandard when you add it all up. And he's already a proven failure as a SS (how quickly some people forget).
I doubt Carroll can hack it as an everyday SS anymore either.
The choices for SS for 2013 are Dozier, someone currently in the minors, a trade, or a FA. Might as well let Dozier play out the season and figure it out over the winter.

Assuming his glove is what it's cracked up to be, I think the best bet is to go with Escobar at short and bat him ninth, then figure out a 2B who can give you at least something with the bat. It's been a long time since the Twins have even had a steady defender at SS.
