    Who plays 3b tomorrow?

    And I don't say that due to Rolen's error. If you play Rolen tomorrow, he doesn't play on Thursday at a 1 PM start time. So over the next two days which do you play Frazier?

    Start Frazier the next two games and there's a good chance he makes a contribution on offense.

    Sorry, but Rolen's playing no matter what.

    Have to agree. He's one of the leaders on this team.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    I don't think the extra day(s) of rest apply in the playoffs. It doesn't bother me much. Frazier had cooled off at the end of the year and Rolen is batting low enough. I'd probably flip him with Hanigan, but hard to be too upset about it. Defense is going to be critical.

    Zito is a lefty. Frazier eats lefties for breakfast. I'd play Frazier on Wednesday and bring Rolen back Thursday if necessary.

    The leaders should be stepping it up in the postseason. If a rookie had committed two errors in three games Dusty would probably put them on the bench for the remainder of the postseason.

    They should play Frazier and get a bat in the lineup. The offense did not look good at all tonight.

    Rolen can play consecutive day games.

    Dusty has to seriously consider benching Rolen. His bat is woefully slow and he's even not fielding well now. Even before the error last night I felt like his range had really diminshed the last two or three weeks. But I expect Rolen to be in there for duration of the post season however long that lasts.

    I'd go Frazier.

    Re: Who plays 3b tomorrow?

    It'll be Frazier due to the night/day back to backs. No other reason than that. Dusty clearly said he wanted to get Todd and Heisey in there but the timing & matchups weren't right. He even pointed to a night/day scenario.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    I'd like to see Fraizer, but I would be surprised. In Cincy I would take Heisey in CF too and if have the lead late put stubbs in for defense. Similar with Rolen. Start Fraizer and get him 3 ab and if we have the lead put the defense in. Just my thoughts. They don't matter though with Dusty at the helm.

    I don't see Dusty sitting Stubbs today against the LH, particularly one he's had some success against.

    I agree with this. Hands down.
