Walker's next stop?

I was checking out one of my favorite Web sites,, earlier today when it mentioned former Airline and LSU star Todd Walker could be headed to Pittsburgh.

The rumor came from Bucco Blog, which apparently is a good source of Pirates' related rumors and innuendo. And it got me thinking, where would Walker fit right now?

Pittsburgh makes sense because Freddy Sanchez, last year's NL batting champion and a similar defensive player to Walker, will open the season on the disabled list.

Oakland could be a fit. General manager Billy Beane loves Walker and the A's could use someone like Walker behind Mark Ellis, who has been injury prone.

Atlanta and Boston both have young second basemen who are untested in the majors. The New York Mets are employing retread Jose Valentin at second base. Colorado has turned to Mets castoff Kaz Matsui.

There aren't any starting positions available right now, but Walker shouldn't have trouble finding somewhere to land starting tomorrow.
