    I can't imagine... But, Dusty always suprises me. Maybe he'll have Rolen pinch run this year.
    Pinch hitting for Pedro Borbon...

    I know you said that in jest but Rolen is actually a great base runner.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    Well, that's what we're supposed to believe.

    In reality, he's got 5 SB (and 5 CS) in four years with the Reds.

    When he challenges an OF arm, he's dead meat as often as he isn't.

    Stolen bases don't equal a good base runner, Rolen goes first to third better than anyone on the roster. I watch most of the games and I honestly don't remember Rolen getting thrown out on multiple occasions.

    I'm fairly certain that that isn't even remotely true.

    Not the worst OF part, but the part about anyone saying that in the first place.

    I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.

    If he'll accept a role as a bench player, at greatly reduced salary, to make a run at a WS ring, great, he'd be a huge veteran presence.

    Unfortunately, the Duhsty would have to be talked into using him that way, Huge risk that he doesn't. Duhsty loves him some crunchy vets, and gives struggling guys starts even when there are better options available - see Cairo, Miguel.

    I'd rather we got a solid SS backup, not sure we have anyone on the current squad capable of spelling Cozart. IMO, he is the wild card to this season - he needs to get fully recovered and back to his pre-injury upside. If he can hit in the lower parts of the order, and stay healthy, we literally have NO weaknesses.

    I think that in a year or two, one of these guys - Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, Stubbs - will be ready to replace Dunn. They won't hit as many home runs as Dunn, but they should have similar OPS. - 757690, July 22, 2008

    Alonso will be playing 1B for the REDS and batting 4th one year from today. - Kingspoint, July 9, 2009
