lol, I was the one who started the thread. Therefore, you can take my word on why it was started.
It was started because the Nats walked Votto twice and struck out Rolen both times, and because I haven't seen Rolen do anything remarkable on offense for a couple of years now. Nothing to do with 4-6.
But hey, I'm just the OP, what do I know?
how did encarnacion do tonite, oh he hit a home run but that does not matter because rolen is good in the clubhouse
Scott Rolen walked 10 times in 269 at bats last year. What we pay him is not worth 10 walks and 1.4 WAR. Not even close. There is much much better value out there. If you think a .242 hitter who walks less then 4% of the time with an OBP under .300 is worth six million dollars and batting clean up, then you're insane. Rolen's numbers won't be much different than last year.
I am not making excuses for the guy, but I always thought his numbers were down because of the shoulder, I wanted to believe after the surgery he could get back to the performance he had his first year with us. I am now starting to believe this is not possible and even questioning whether he maybe hurt again. He was given the day off on Fri or Saturday, I cannot remember, which one? I thought that was odd, rest already? Normally, Dusty gives him a wed. or thur. game off ( afternoon or Sunday).
Rolen has sucked for like 1.5 seasons now.
but he is a good leader heck of a boy scout
Rolen is done and I think he knows it. He is 6'4 245lbs and is now a Judy hitter.
3 HR's after Allstar break in 2010, and 5 in 2011.
Hannigan had 6 last year, Cairo 8, and Frazier 6.
too bad I had this fraud correct two years ago
