They really didn't have a reason then. A offensively weak SS is ok to carry if you have a good defender and strong lineup around to pick up the slack. This year the reds are looking at a offensively slumping BP, a streaky lineup, and although Cozy is one of their better hitters these last two months....Walt would be fooling himself to not consider a stronger SS candidate.
