Happens to even the best of them, not just guys like Weathers.
    I would take my chances with Rolen.

    I'm guessing that 100% of MLB managers would have done exactly what Narron did and pitch to Pujols.

    If we had a solid closer, then pitch to him... Unfortunatly, I dont believe the Reds have any pitcher (except maybe Harang) that can shut this man down. The Reds should have Walked, Walked, Walked... Hell, they should have walked him all day.
