    this is the best move so far

    he can play 2b and let the rookies ease in and play ss once didi gets sent packing cause he stinks

    also stephen had an awful year, that is obvious but hes a better hitter than that, he is essentially a better bench option than brendan ryan and can outhit didi gregorious, hes only getting paid 5m

    Unless they are packaging a deal for Hamels then I hate this move..

    Drew just blocks Refsynder... and he sucks to boot..

    Don't mind it I just hope they have a legitimate competition for 2B in spring training and push Drew aside if and when Refsnyder is deemed to be ready.

    whats the worst that can happen? that he sucks and refs outhits him? woopiedoo, you send brendan ryan packing or didi gregorious

    you leave youirself with options to plug in and mix & match in the case that both ref and didi struggle

    He is no where near as bad as he played last year. Figured refsynder would be given a shot but mabe they call him up in June if drew or didi suck.

    Worst case is actually that we block development of younger players by signing this stiff. Giving Binder the feeling that he needs at bats because he is a "proven" major leaguer..

    Best case scenario is we deal this bum to a SS needy team (Mets?) at deadline and get ourselves something decent..

    Yep great point. Depth is always a good thing.

    Bottom line is Ref is not ready. Pirela is still a gamble. Drew is cheap and gives stability. Getting spring training helps Drew.
    amen

    As we learned last year, legitimate depth on a team is a great thing to have.

    Girardi isnt the type to go with veteran over rookie likejoe torre.......... this move blocks noone, remember when the yankees signed tony womack to play 2b? that didnt block robinson cano
