With shortstop Royce Clayton talking to the Nationals, is there any chance that Cristian Guzman could lose his starting position after such a bad year? I would much rather see Clayton at shortstop.

According to Clayton, manager Frank Robinson believes he could compete for the starting job at shortstop if he signs with the Nationals. I agree that Guzman needs some competition after such a bad year. However, if Guzman loses his starting job, the team would have a very expensive bench player. It would be tough to trade Guzman because of his contract. The way I see it, Guzman is here to stay. (Emphasis mine)
Replacing Cristian Guzman with Royce Clayton is an inspired choice!
