Rolen is older, he should be a sixth place hitter now. But the Reds lack a fifth place hitter.
Get a left fielder who can hit, move Rolen down in the lineup, problem basically solved.
The problem is Rolen though. The guy simply is not hitting, regardless of where he should be hitting in the line up. Coming into today his OBP was .300. That isn't cutting it.
