That's an incredibly real and exigent circumstance. (I'm not saying it won't be dealt with, but if it's not dealt with, this team will absolutely positively have a losing season next year).
Who did you think we were going to play at shortstop? How much are you willing to spend and what would you need to see in return to avoid this tragedy?
