    Rolen Out 4-6 More Weeks

    Not a huge loss. An injured Rolen isn't any better than Cairo or Frazier. I'm all for him taking however long it takes if it means he can get back to where he was at the start of last year. I'm not even sure if that is possible though.

    I think they should shut him down for the rest of the season and let Frazier take over 3B.

    Basically his season is over, at his age there is no way he gets healthy and rehabs before the final few weeks of the season which ends in late Sept this year.

    Rolen's defense is still MILES better than Cairo....that's what I miss.

    That's why we should see what Frazier can do...

    I just think it's time to call it quits Scott. You are very close to a Hall of Fame 3rd Baseman. You are basically Ron Santo from a Hall of Fame similarity perspective.

    Not with him injured it isn't. He hadn't been getting to balls that in previous seasons he did get., There's been a big drop-off from even last season to this year both in the field and at the plate.

    Rolen was a great pickup for the Reds but I think his time is done. He should probably hang it up even if the surgery is successful.

    Agreed. He gave the Reds one very good half-season.

    Made over $100 million during his career already.

    He could save the Reds $6.5 million if he retires at the end of this season, but John Fay reports zero chance of that. Gamer.

    I expect this to play out like the Griffey debacle. Baker will mindlessly keep running him out there, batting him 5th or 6th, out of respect. A shadow of a shell.

    or bad ones -- certainly if they happen to be lefty catchers or relievers
    The older I get - the better I was

    and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)

    I'm sure you would retire and forgo 8.5 million bucks too
