    What if this is a quick-end for Rolen? If the shoulder is too banged up, does anyone see him retiring mid-season?

    It would be sad to see, but it could open up $$$ and room to bring home Youk.

    At least it may explain his struggles. Given his lack of production offensively, the Reds will be better with Frazier in the lineup.

    I don't wish Rolen ill will - but this team needs someone else at 3B IMO
    The older I get - the better I was

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

    That is disappointing in light of the fact that he said he was feeling so good in spring. His body is telling him it's time.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!

    It's really sad to watch a one time great player not know when it is time to step away from the game...

    Kinda saw it coming. Not saying he isn't hurt, but with the way he was struggling I figured he'd take a trip to the DL.

    I don't think he was ever fully recovered to begin with. He hasn't been the same since he first hurt the shoulder.

    I had the same thought. Not sure if he would go through with it before the season ends - but the thought did occur to me.
