Mercer at this point in time is probably their best bet at SS, but he is in the Hague, Walker and Presley catagories, there will have to be a point that they don’t have any other options for Hague and Mercer to show what they can really do, already happened with Presley and Walker.

Second basemen with the offensive potential that Walker has aren’t easy to come by, especially on what amounts to five year deals.
