With Manzella out, the Astros are comfortable with Navarro and Blum

It makes sense, but seriously, God help us all.

"We're comfortable giving Geoff playing time over there and as is the case with Johnson and Bourgeois and Castro, we have to find out about Ozzie. He's only about 26 years old, and if he can show the steady play he showed at [Triple-A] Round Rock at this level, then it behooves us to give him a shot instead of somebody with experience that doesn't carry the upside because of age or whatever.

Right now we're not actively looking for a shortstop. That said, if something came along we thought would make sense, we'd pursue it."

There it is...
