Izturis wants to stay

As the Orioles look ahead to the 2011 season, who is going to play shortstop?

It's way too soon for Manny Machado and there is not a player pushing for that spot in the upper levels on the farm.

Cesar Izturis told Josh Land of the Carroll County Times that he wants to remain an Oriole.

Some fans will want someone there with more bat. But of all the positions on the diamond, short is one where you just can't skimp on the defense.

In looking for next year's shortstop, he may already be here.

Now they just have to work on a new contract if the team feels the same as Izturis.
