Re: Zach Stewart's night
I was casually referring to Cabrera's veteraness (my word and its copyrighted)
I think everyone missed my point about that list though. Those weren't the top 37 year olds, they were the only 37 year olds. So out of 60+ guys to play 3B last year that was it for the 37 year olds.
The list is an outlier.
That Chipper had a great year, albeit a short one just shows how hard it is to play the game, and be healthy at that age. And Chipper has had plenty of injury issues in his career. Also, Rolen isn't nearly the hitter Chipper is or was. In the last 7 years, Rolen has hand an OPS below .800 4 times. He's sitting below .700 now. Since 2005 he's played in 130+ games twice.
What I am saying is, he's more likely to post a .720 OPS than .820 due to age and health. I'm saying 120 games might be wishful thinking and I'm saying if the Reds win next year it won't be because of Scott Rolen.
“I’ll just take my walk,” he said, to laughter. One reporter followed up that Hamilton might be able to score from first on a single. “If he does, that’s great. Isn’t that crazy? Think about that: I hit a single and got an RBI. Like I said, crude stat, right?”
