That's a very valid point sisyphus. However, he might make an excellent replacement for Pedro since he will sign with the Dodgers about the same time.

If Walker were to move to third base, it would immediately diminish his value. Walker makes for a good hitter as a second baseman, not as a third baseman.


Walker needs to stay put at 2B. Willton, I agree 100%.

I think you missed my point. Walker may need to move to 3rd as he loses range in a few years, not now. Also, I'm not sure we have seen his full progression as a hitter so I wouldn't rule out being able to provide at least as adequate corner infield bat.

Well, given that he's going to be 27 this season, it's hard to see how his "full progression" is going to be much better than his current ability as a hitter. And at age 32, which is how old he will be in the year you propose he take Pedro's position, I suspect that his hitting ability is unlikely to be any better than what it is currently, particularly in the power department.
