I think Stewart is one of the more valuable properties the reds had in their minor league system.
I could stomach Edwin and Stewart. I think it's too much, but I could stomach it. Edwin, Stewart AND Roeicke is just terrible.
Is Scott Rolen going to be around for the next reds team that really matters? No. By putting him on the payroll, they can't go shopping for free agents this winter. It stops the franchise dead in it's tracks.
They still need a shortstop and a leftfielder and now with injuries and setbacks a good bit of that minor league pitching depth is gone.
