Scott Rolen on the DL

In an uncharacteristic move, the Reds stopped considering Scott Rolen to be day-to-day and actually put him on the DL, retroactive to Saturday. If only that meant they could go back in time and play those games again with that roster spot filled by someone not suffering from spinning-world-syndrome.

Now, I don’t want it to sound like I begrudge Rolen taking time off for a head injury. It’s not as if he’s slacking off or something: dude can’t seem to shake headaches for days at a time. What I am saying is, “darn the luck.” Edwin Encarnación could have sat the DL just as well as Rolen, and it would have cost less. Either way, Adam “Goober Pyle” Rosales is the one on the field.
