Alex Gonzalez Is Out; Who's In?

Now that Reds shortstop Alex Gonzalez is out with a knee fracture, will Wayne Krivsky be on the lookout for a short-term replacement?

New manager Dusty Baker has shown a propensity to trust veteran fill-in middle infielders, so Jeff Keppinger may have an opportunity to play Lou Gehrig to Gonzalez's Wally Pipp if Krivsky doesn't dig up any help.  Bet Keppinger's never been compared to Gehrig before, eh?  Moving Brandon Phillips to shortstop will not be considered.

The free agent market offers next to nothing even as a short-term Gonzalez replacement.  Unless...wait for it...Neifi!
