1) david weathers is the short answer.

2) kent mercker may be brought into a closing situation to face lefties.

3) ryan wagner is not ready, yet, though most reds fans assume he'll have the job by season's end. weathers has not been terrible in the role (surprisingly), so there's not a lot of reason to rush wagner.

yeah, yes...

It's a committee of mediocre options, with Weathers its putative head. Few save chances in any case.
I'm sure the Reds would love to have Wagner step up and grab the job, but he's been seriously scuffling since about the time Graves was jettisoned.
