You could substitute good fielding SS for Rabbi, and major league free agent market for Brooklyn, and the joke still works.
Jocketty could put out a tweet that the Reds are looking to sign a good defensive SS to back up Cozart, and he will get over a dozen messages from agents in a matter of minutes. And if Jocketty can't find a decent backup SS for close to MLB minimum salary, he should be fired.
That said, I don't even think they need one. This team is a contending team even with Donald or Burriss at SS for the whole season.
I agree with everything except that last paragraph. Yes, they are a contending team even with Donald or Burriss (but it's certainly harder)....but they STILL need one.
Pitching and defense...anything else is gravy. Mmmm...gravy.
