Yea, I see where you are coming from. I would still feel that Rolen's salary is a luxury we can't afford, given that his addition would still leave us needing to vastly upgrade SS, LF and a mid-high rotation spot. A lot of money allocated to a guy who hasn't produced consistently in years, and who is on a first name basis with the DL.
