As with all international signings where you get a veteran player it's a wait and see deal, but I doubt he's anything less than solid.

SS was a huge hole for the A's after Drew left for Boston. Nak is a cheap signing but he is probably an upgrade over the remaining FA SS. Overall the middle infield positions seem pretty weak so a short term affordable deal for an import might not be a terrible deal. The A's now seem pretty set going into 2013 but I would like to see them acquire one more Vet starter, imo lossing BMac is a huge loss.
