    If he retires, does he continue to draw the contract salary??? My guess is yes.

    Alonso singles to right. 1st and 2nd.

    Being a sunk cost, I'm sure the money could be worked out.

    He does not draw the salary if he retires

    I'd love to see Rolen retire during the AS Break. It's painful watching great players go out like this. Willie Mays-esque.

    I think he suggests Rolen did not take them, hence the decline.

    I always root for the Reds to win, but so far they don't deserve to win this ballgame.

    They score on long home runs but don't seem capable of taking advantage of opportunities with men on base at all. Not at all.

    Thanks for the clarification! I was thinking the opposite, which is par for the course today.

    They deserve to win because they have homegrown an outstanding pitcher.

    Ok. I'll clarify. The offense doesn't deserve to win.
