Neither - we need a backup shortstop. If Beckham can do that, it allows us to keep Keppinger and Gillespie (neither of whom can play short) on the roster. So Beckham can shift to short to give Alexei a day off.
As for rebuilding, our starting pitching will likely keep us within 5 or 6 games most of the way. I'm okay with low-cost addition.
And our 2 sellable players, Peavy and Rios, will be sellable this time next year (at a lower price, however).
