Apparently Willie Bloomquist, formerly with the Seattle Mariners, is raking in AZ so far this spring training. I think he's got a lot to prove, Callaspo isn't going to lay down, but we need one of the two to fill the void for where Grud left off. I'm thinking it will be a rotation, as expected, but we need an everyday player over there at second base. Bloomquist is a career .363 hitter, and he has good speed/versatility, and I wouldn't mind him being the starter at 2nd if need be.

Bloomquist went 3 for 3 on sunday. Not a bad start.:rock:

I like the guy, I think he's a better option than Callaspo.. he was underrated when he was playing for Seattle.

That's the good thing about having an abundance of talent.....you get competition at every position.

This is very true at every other position. I wouldn't say we have an 'abundance' or overabundance of talent at 2nd base though, neither of them are gonna be stars, but I see what your saying. I'm trying to ponder what we will do when Mike Moustakas, our #1 pick in '07 makes it to the bigs, and Eric Hosmer, our 2008 #1 pick...

Gordon at 3rd
Moustakas at SS
Aviles at 2nd
Hosmer at 3rd

That sounds like a beast IF in when we get around to it in the next couple years.

You mean Hosmer at 1st?

^Yeah my bad. Hosmer is a hell of a prospect at 1st. Some say he's like the next Mark Teixeira. That would be epic to have another stud bat come to KC.

Bloomquist was iffy in Seattle, but who knows...maybe he'll pan out to be a decent starter at 2nd?

We will have to thin out the herd at 1st base a bit. Jacobs is currently leading the majors in homeruns, Shealy has been playing well, as has Gload. If Billy Butler ever starts fielding well, then you have to deal with him, too!:confused:
