Padres.com: Padres prepared to find shortstop GM Towers says he has interest in veterans Eckstein, Vizquel
"By next week, we would like to get that done," Towers said. "That's probably priority No. 1 now for us, getting shortstop protection. We don't want to end up empty-handed there."
Towers mentioned he is looking at Vizquel and Eckstein.
"There are a couple of other guys, too," Towers said. "We've got three or four options."
Currently, the Padres have Luis Rodriguez -- who filled in admirably for Greene during the final two months of the season after Greene broke his left hand.
So the question is who do you want as starting short stop? I still like Rodriguez but I think I'm the only one.
