Re: I hope Rolen doesn't come back.
I wouldn't mind seeing Rolen come back and playing maybe 2 games a week or something, but I def. do not want him coming back and playing 5 games per wk. or anywhere near that often.
Especially not with Frazier getting pretty hot as of late. Yeah, he's certainly not got the glove of Rolen, but I don't think he is as awful as a lot of people do and the only way he is going to improve is by going out and playing often. Learn from his mistakes. Votto wasn't always the fantastic defensive 1st basemen that he has become, but through playing time and a lot of hard work and dedication, he turned himself into gold glove caliber. And I think Frazier, with a lot of playing time and putting in the hard work could do the same. Frazier's bat, in comparison to Rolen's is simply more important right now IMO.
I'm glad that Rolen is still around for the rest of the season to hopefully work with Frazier on his defensive skills as well as the value overall of his veteran presence in the clubhouse. But no, I def. DO NOT want to see him being trotted out there night after night. Not unless he just starts tearing the cover off the ball offensively and I would be shocked if that happened.
