Dusty is set in his ways, besides being an idiot.
Typical short term thinking here with no foresight into the bigger picture. True, nobody would need a day off on game three, but the Reds need Rolen in September just as much as they do in April. If you keep running him out there with no rest he will break down. There is no reason to over use him when you have a capable backup in Cairo.
It's obvious that no matter what Dusty does, the usual suspects will come here and bash him. The same people that clamor for Chapman to go 2-3 inning in a relief appearance, for example, will be the same people that bash him for ruining his arm if he ends up on the DL. I even saw another thread that was killing him for his alleged CF-SS 1-2 in every lineup. Funny, I thought BP was leading off and Cozart off to a great start in the 2 hole.
Sorry, but I just can't stand the bashing of the manager with little to no logic supporting their continued, ridiculous claims. Same with those who want to trash Stubbs, Arroyo, etc.
