    With the Reds scuffling the way they are, could his presence in the clubhouse be useful?
    How many games is Rolen worth by being in the clubhouse?

    By the time Rolen would be game ready, the season would be over.
    Opinions are like belly buttons. Everybody has one, and they don't want someone else's shoved into their face.

    I think just having his leadership around would be a major help, I was on board with bringing him back from the get go in a reduced role of course. I think this season illustrates how important it is to have a true leader in the club house and the Reds lost their 2 best guys in Rolen and Cairo.

    Leadership or some sort of it needs to come from a player instead of a coach, Cairo is management not "one of the guys".

    I thought this was a gag thread, and I almost did!

    Who should Rolen replace on the roster?

    I doubt Rolen would come back as a bench player.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    Bring him back as a coach.
