Re: Scott Rolen question
Rolen (if healthy) should probably play 6 of every 9 at 3rd when he comes back with Frazier picking up 3 starts in left. At least when he does come back the Reds will be in Cleveland and he should not take any at bats from Frazier. After the Cleveland series the Reds go on to play 17 straight with 11 of those coming on the road on the dreaded West Coast tour.
Cincy needs to find out if Rolen has anything left, so he should play 3b at least 10 of those games with Frazier picking the other 7 at 3b and maybe another 6 in left. A healthy Scott Rolen would be a nice problem to have but the guy needs to be taken care of to get the most out of him. One thing for certain is our bench will be a lot stronger.
