    Eric Chavez?

    Read a piece in the Boston Globe that Eric Chavez wants to resume his career at age 33. He's a lefty bat with nearly the same profile as Rolen when the Reds got him. Top notch defender with power who was derailed by back and shoulder problems. The Reds need lefty hitting and a guy to share time with Rolen. Perhaps holding them both to part time loads would keep them healthy and productive in the middle of the Reds order w/o a drop-off defensively.

    The Reds could do worse than giving Chavez an incentove laden deal, Add a little caddy time at 1B and DHing against the AL teams and maybe 300 productive ABs from Chavez would be just the thing the Reds need to do to piece togther a middle of the order behind or between Votto and Bruce. I think Rolen would be a lot more productive.

    He'd have to come cheap on an incentive laden deal, but if he would, the Reds should consider it.

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
