Weeghman you are right
The Brewers did play him some in LF during ST last year, but he was just as bad, including a single that bounced over his head.
I thought the Brewers had another hotshot LF, Matt LaPorta, who was going to take LF this year. Maybe they are just thinking that Rolen might be a good late-inning defensive replacement who can actually hit, and limited playing time would keep him healthy.
In any situation, the Cards are probably better off without Rolen, even if they are paying off part of his salary
Whether it comes from [the media] or even comes from some fans, who are deservedly upset at a given point, it's really just noise. If we let it affect our decision making, shame on us
