You can platoon Frazier and Ludwick and screw them both up.
Frazier was hitting even when he was in the platoon earlier in the year. I think it's safe to assume he'll be OK. And it's not like Rolen will be able to play everyday anyhow. They'll find days off for him and Votto and Ludwick as well. Frazier will manage to play two of every three games in some fashion or another.
