Re: Rolen out tonight w/ back issues....
Scary news. Thank god for the All-Star break. Hopefully this isn't that bad and Scott can play in a few days/also play the Alll-Star game to boot, then come back healthy after the break.
Something in me feels like that won't be the case though. Back spasms, sore knee, sore back ... feels like this won't go away quick and easy. To play with a short bench and have to start Cairo the rest of this series really puts the chances of a sweep much higher as well. Dangerous stretch here for the Reds, hopefully they're still 2-3 games up going into the break.
