Anonymous poll - Should Gordon Beckham be on our opening roster as starting second basemen?

The purpose of this poll is to validate whether a debate truly exists in the SSS community about whether Gordon Beckham should and will be heading up North come April. If you haven't voiced your opinion on this topic, especially if you think he should start, participate in this anonymous poll and avoid the wrath of Larry.

The question is fairly specific based on a number of assumptions:

1. Alexei will play shortstop, non withstanding defensive concerns.

2. KW stated his preference that Beckham starts, i.e. gets regular at-bats, either at the minor or major league level.

Personally, I don't think Beckham should be on the opening roster. He's only played 14 games in the AFL, and needs to work on his craft more. Perhaps later as a September call-up assuming that Getz / Nix are playing below replacement level. There are very very few players who have succeeded at the Major League level with the number of minor league at-bats that Beckham has thus far accrued.
