The Reds are 2 and 12 when he doesn't appear in games this year.
That means they are 47-28 when he plays.
I know he's an all star, but I can't say for sure, definitively, what it means to have him in the lineup. Cairo has been serviceable in his stead.
He was not in the game for the debacle in Atlanta, and was not there for the two most recent heart-breakers in Philadelphia, either. It is this most recent stretch that underlines the point for me.
I feel we win last night with Rolen, for example.
What are your thoughts?
