Loretta to Undero Surgery

Geoff Young at Ducksnorts has already collected the meaningful links on the subject.

Obviously this is bad, but it doesn't have to be as bad as Bochy is going to make it. Geoff Blum and Damian Jackson will split time at second in place of Loretta (unless there is a trade, which I rather doubt). That's making things worse than they have to be. Geoff Blum is one of the worst second baseman I have ever seen. He doesn't kick the ball or make bad throws. He doesn't get a chance to. The man has no range. None. Also, Damian Jackson is a miserable hitter even if he is half decent fielder. He's a career .243/.324/.357 hitter past his prime.

Well, who else do we have that can play second base? Do we have someone that can play the vacated position? To answer the first question, Sean Burroughs. In response to the second, yes. Xavier Nady is supposedly capable of playing third base. Even if he can't, he can't be as bad a third baseman as Blum is a second baseman and X can rake.

Update: I neglected to mention the call-up this will necessitate. I'm holding out hope that Bobby Scales will be the one asked to fill in for Loretta.
