DateQuestionAnswer
2009-06-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)With Yuni going out for a month or so with a pulled hammy, should the M's go out and get a real SS (if so, who?), or punt with Josh Wilson and Ronny Cedeno? They are only 2 1/2 games behind some flawed teams.
(Buddy Biancalana from Tumwater)
There aren't any shortstops in the market. Tejada, I guess. (Joe Sheehan)
