Frazier should be batting 4th or 5th, Hanigan 1st or 2nd, and Rolen dead last. Even if Rolen goes on a "hot" streak, where he OPS's .750 for a week or two, he should still be batting last.
Last time I checked, how you win doesn't matter, and right now we have 4-5 game lead and are 10+ games over in the win side. As my friend said, all you can do is win, you can't "super win" or double win a game, you just win and they have. So why change it if it ain't broke.
