Good counter points. I'd guess there is zero chance Rolen is back.
I can't fathom it for this reason but LaRussa could be in charge of those players with issues currently on him. Reds fans would be fine if he won it all....but honestly their hate for him would cause immediate thoughts that you get now that Dusty has had 5 years to accumulate. It would be far worse than now until LaRussa won something for us.
