Both LH bats for the outfield.
Sweeney as a platoon partner for Frazier in LF (with Frazier moving to 3B and Rolen getting a rest) wouldn't be the worst idea.
If the Reds could then land a legitimate CF guy who can lead off, you might have something:
Frazier 3B/ LF
Sweeney LF/ Rolen 3B
Cozart/ Gregorius SS
That's not a bad bench, as Rolen could handle, IMO, a reduced role and thrive.
