Brandon Crawford is not the long-term answer at shortstop.

The two biggest weaknesses that the San Francisco Giants currently have are at shortstop and second base. 

Giants shortstops are hitting a combined .240/.276/.364 and their second basemen are even worse, hitting a combined .208/.259/.216 with just one extra base hit. 

Brandon Crawford, Manny Burriss, Joaquin Arias and Ryan Theriot all simply do not hit enough to profile as long-term solutions at those positions.

There still remains no timetable for the return of Freddy Sanchez, who is in the final year of his contract. 

If the Giants are going to plug these holes, they are likely going to have to go outside of the organization or into the farm system as they did yesterday by calling up prospect Charlie Culberson. 

Let's take a look at Culberson and nine other potential long-term solutions to the Giants' middle-infield woes.
