An Actual Battle?
I really see this as unnecassary, but Jed Lowrie and Julio Lugo are still competing for the starting shortstop job! I made a post about this earlier, but back then I though that Lowrie would still get the job. Now, I'm not sure, they have both gotten off to good starts in spring training however. The problem is that, every season he has played for them, Lugo has disappointed in defense and offense. Last year, Lowrie wasn't spectacular, but he was still a very good shortstop and wasn't that bad on offense. I do say that the job will eventually be solely Lowrie's.
