So what do you guys think? Seems like a decent option to me given the SS FA market. Probably cant be much worse than Uribe.

I think at this point just about anyone would be better than Uribe, including Mike Caruso...He has some impressive power numbers and I think depending the price tag, he's worth taking a shot at...but as I recall his speed leaves a lot to be desired (and I say that based entirely on his number of SBs, which in fact, doesn't determine speed at all), I'd really like to see more speed in our lineup. I am not so sure how much speed this guy offers.

Never heard of this guy, but without even seeing anything about him I'd take a chance and sign him over Uribe. It's time to go in another direction at SS. It's really frustrating to watch those Sammy Sosa swings over and over.

If for no other reason, I'd like KW to sign another shortstop to at least put some pressure on Juan instead of him coming into the season AGAIN knowing there is nobody behind him to replace him.
