The Role of Aaron Miles

This fairly substantial St. Louis Post-Dispatch article showed up in my Yahoo! news feed today. It describes the crisis of conscience recent Cubs signee Aaron Miles faced when choosing between the team that "made [his] career happen" (boo, hiss!) and the one offering a bit more guaranteed money (oh, baby!).

One might say he was torn between two lovers, feelin' like a fool...ahem...

More interestingly, the article offers seemingly contradictory clues as to what Miles' role will be on the Cubs this year. At one point, reporter Derrick Goold states that the Cubs "[are] going to clear a spot for him in the lineup," which implies (to me at least) that he'll be a starter.

But then Goold immediately follows that up with, "He may play multiple positions for the Cubs," which implies (again, to me at least) that he'll be the utility guy most of us expect him to be.

So which is it, BCB faithful? Let's take it to a poll...
