You have to have both, and I think every organization does that to differing degrees.

Yeah, forget that they (and most others) see Uribe as a possible fulltime SS and Valdez as a utility IF. Dammit, they shouldn't be taking every opportunity to see how their potential '05 SS handles the position, they should make their potential UT guy as comfy as possible!!

It's funny, as you type that, Ozzie is quoted in the paper saying he doesn't think Uribe can handle SS everyday next year.

You either start Valdez at SS or you don't start him and bring him in off the bench. You don't put a guy at a position he hasn't played in more than a year!
