Desmond's minor league error numbers:

30, 39, 37, 32, 23, 28

Tell me, please, where this massive improvement is going to come from? The pressure of the majors? Our wonderful coaching staff? The guy has never been a consistently good defensive SS, but yet this organization believes that moving a fantastic defensive SS is the right way to go.

Offensively Desmond is average at best. He doesn't walk, he strikes out a lot, and doesn't have a solid average. But he's a "winner," right? So he's the future SS while we will hurt our team by moving Espinosa to 2B.
