Re: Zach Stewart's progress
Scott Rolen on a bad day is better than a lot of guys on a good day. Since August 1st, 2009:
Winning percentage with Rolen: .584
Winning percentage without Rolen: .486
Over 162 games, that translates to a 95-67 record with Rolen and a 79-83 record without Rolen. Washed up or not, I know I'd rather have Rolen at $7.2MM for both this year and next instead of Encarnacion (2 HRs and paid $2.5MM in 2011), Roenicke (1.533 WHIP in AAA), and/or Stewart (1.969 WHIP in Toronto) right now.
