Shortly thereafter, I sold a call side against -- the 48/51.50 short call vert short here -- for a .23 ($23)/contract credit, so I'm net credit for the roll. (I could not get enough credit out of the 48.5/52 to bother with, so dropped the spread down a half strike. The resulting setup is pictured here.
Ideally, I need price to move back toward the "body" of the setup to get out for scratch or better. If that doesn't happen, I'll naturally take the call side off at near worthless, and then "lather, rinse, repeat" with the rolling/selling an oppositional side against.
