Would you have prefered Rosales over Rolen, I know Rolen has not been very good this year though, will give you one point for that
These are really strange posts to try to comment on. There's so much you put here, the rebuttal could be 20 pages in length. Corey Patterson alone had 100's of pages devoted to his uselessness. Janish not only was light's out better than Cabrera Defensively, but had a better OBP than Cabrera. When you're batting in the top of the lineup in front of Votto, the goal is to get on base at any cost.
And, where does Adam Rosales come into the picture? Any number of others would have played 3rd Base instead of him, including not having to deal with this fiasco of Rolen on the team this year taking away at-bats from Frazier. Frazier would be further developed than he is right now. What a wonderful thing that would be?
