Stubbs IS likely to get better. He needs experience.
OC...I agree with. But I'm hoping and praying that the Reds do something to address the situation. Janish, a trade, a switch to the batting order, a callup...SOMETHING.
Rolen is getting extra day's off in the first half so he'll be fresher for the second half. That's the whole point of it.
Gomes doesn't have to. I fully expect Heisey to see more playing time.
And the catchers only have to do better than CORKY.
