View Full Version : 3B a concern?

10-11-2010, 06:53 PM
Anybody starting to worry about third base next year? Rolen is great, but seeing how he ended the year with increasing neck and back problems, his decrease in power, and seeming stiffness in the playoffs, it might not be a smart idea to entirely count on him for next year. Francisco has known defensive defficiencies and is still pretty unproven. What do people think of third base next year?

I would have to probably guess that Rolen will still be the guy, but may get more rest than he did this year...something like...

60-70% Rolen
30-40% Fransisco, or whoever else we have that can play the position

Im worried about 3B, not because of Scott Rolen, but because of who his backup is. I don't care if Fancisco can hit the ball 3 times around the moon and back, he is just an AWFUL defender. Nor, have I seen, does his bat make up for the lack of fielding (i.e., Gomes, for the most part).
