    If Jeter can play, he is our SS. If not (which I do not think will be the case) Nunez is fine. He would make a fraction of the cost and while neither is truly proven in the MLB, Nunez has shown he can at least be adequate.
    I say this thread belongs right here. If you don't like a thread stay out of it.

    I'd take him on a similar deal to what we offered last year. I've heard that he plays good defense at multiple positions. Frees up Nunez to be traded. Nunez is one of our best trade chips.
    O-H-I-O!

    like:

    Kosuke fukudome
    year before coming to the US: .351 with 31 home runs and 104 RBIs, winning the Central League MVP award.

    Current: AAA free agent


    Tsuyoshi Nishioka
    Following the 2010 season, in which Nishioka led the league with 206 hits, a .346 batting average and 121 runs scored
    current: asked twins to tear up his contract so he could return to japan cause he sucked

    Akinori Iwamura
    from 1998 to 2006 and won six Golden Glove awards at third base. He also hit 106 home runs in his last three seasons in the Central League, including 32 (with a .311 batting average) in 2006.
    current: stunk, quit baseball to go back to japan

    Hahahaha nice list. But to be fair we saw Nishioka's career fell in our eyes that day Swisher slid into him and broke his fibula, forcing him miss 6-8 weeks. He was never the same player again. He finished the season with a .226 batting average in 221 at bats, with 0 homers.

    2012 got worse for him, where he spent time between AAA and sucking on the MLB level. He ended up giving back every penny the Twins owed him moving forward in 2012 and 2013 to go back to hometown Japan.

    This. And I think he'd be a better bat offensively than Jayson Nix.

    i was at that game, coldest non october game ive ever been to...

    but those are just 3, i can go on on the amount of japanese players who come from japan being great and do nothing here...

    kei igawa was a strike out machine
    daisuke was an ace
    the mariners had a recent catcher that also left back to japan cause he sucked.
    kaz matsui?

    i think who ever believe this guy can be a legit SS for us is crazy and he didnt come here cause he didnt want to be a backup player
