    Scott Rolen

    So the Nats have figured out you walk Votto, strike out Rolen.

    In all seriousness, at this stage of his career, when does Rolen say, "My bat is hurting the team more than my glove is helping it, I'm gonna hang it up"?

    Re: Scott Rolen

    I mentioned it in the game thread....why don't you just put Bruce at 4? Is it really that bad to have two lefties back to back? When you're facing a closer, they aren't gonna change..and Votto/Bruce are good enough to hit Righty and Lefty pitchers

    I'd swap Ludwick and Rolen. Ryan will hit. I think he's still nervous about doing well as a Red, since he's always wanted to play here. Hitting 6th will help take some of the pressure off Rolen.

    And I'd platoon Heisey and Stubbs. Stubbs in not an everyday player until he gets his head out of you know where.

    Yeah I'm hoping today was a sign of things to come for Ludwick, maybe he's just getting comfortable here. It'd be nice if he can hit a decent 4th.

    Rolen has been toast since July of 2010. I see no reason to think he will get much better. Pathetic number four hitter.

    .358 OPS so far this year. He'll pick up somewhat, but I don't want him hitting (not walking, thanks Dusty) through this slump in the cleanup spot. Goes a long way towards neutralizing our by far most potent threat, Votto.

    Rolen is an awful number 4 hitter. I'd have Ludwick/Bruce hit 4 and put Rolen at 6.

    It has been clearly stated numerous times by many members of this forum that rolen is stealing money, this criminal should be cut immediately, even francisco is hitting more than rolen

    I did mean Ludwick. His grandparents live close enough that they always rooted for the Reds and Ryan loved the team growing up.

    He won't.

    People (even announcers) still rave about Rolen as if he invented the game.

    "Best baserunner I ever saw", ad nauseum....

    No player ever feels they are done plus he has 8.16 Million other reasons to play this season

    Very funny post...I visualize Rolen stepping to the plate with a mask on.
