SS Situation

Here is a question that was asked to John Manuel from Baseball America on an ESPN.com chat about the Halos SS situation, and I tend to agree with his analysis, even though I know it will never work out this way.

Dan LA, CA: How do you think the Angels SS situation will play out this year? Will there be a big drop off in defense with the loss of Cabrera?

 John Manuel: (2:49 PM ET ) I'm fascinated by that competition actually. I'm betting on Brandon Wood but have very little confidence in that bet; he's the top talent there and to me, they could use the offense. I'm not an Erick Aybar guy (or a Willy Aybar guy for that matter), and I'm not huge on Maicer Izturis, who I think is a great utility guy but that's his optimal role. Give the most talented guy, Wood, the shot, and see how he responds. My ample gut tells me Scioscia will go with the best defender, probably Izturis.
