The truth is likely somewhere between you and Cedric.
The Reds are better with Rolen no doubt, but the Reds have been lucky too when in the line-up. It's counter intuitive to think that Rolen can change the skill level of the team to that degree by simply being on the field rather than in the dugout. It's just not logical. Otherwise, even more skilled teams, like the Cardinals of the past would have won 115+ games annually. They didn't because a large sample will weasel out clearly ridiculpus stats with no merit like those shown in this thread.
