Im sorry, but Rolen needs to stop screwing this team, and go to front office and say put me on the DL. His back, and lack of availability is killing us. We always are playing one guy shirt because of him.

Yeah, Rolen is really screwing this team over. Jocketty can't do anything till Scott gives him the ability to do so.

C'mon, give me a break. It's the front office making the calls, not Scott.

It feels like all you can count on him for is a completely meaningless blast in the late innings. That seems like his story for the last two seasons.

Has Xavier Paul ever played at first?

EDIT: just checked. only played in the OF. interestingly, he's logged some time in CF. I hope the Reds consider giving him some starts at center against righties.

That's the approach that I think Stubbs should be benched for.

Refusal to protect the plate, especially on 0-2 and 1-2 counts.

And with two men on base, to boot.

I believe that's called giving away an AB.
