So What Now – In the Disciples of Uecker article I linked to above, Ryan does a great job of laying out some possible replacements for now lost for the season Alex Gonzalez.  Can’t believe we’re even having this discussion seeing as we were just talking about replacements for Mat Gamel last week, it’s really pretty sad then you think about it.  Out of the choices Ryan lays out my preference would be Barmes from the Pirates as I think he’s most likely the best all-around player on the list.  Problem is of course the Pirates may not want to do anything till close to the trade deadline which leaves a whole for a pretty long time.  I’ll put my trust in Attanasio & Melvin that they’ll do something to fill the position, just not sure how quickly they can do it & what damage will be while they’re working on it.
