What does future HOF have to do with how he'll perform in 2010 and beyond. How about all those Championships that Junior brought to the REDS? I also could care less about EE. That has nothing to do with it. If it had been a straight swap of EE for Rolen, then that would have been OK....to trade a very poor defensive and young 3rd Baseman for an average defensive way over-the-hill veteran. That would have been OK. The losses of Stewart and Roenicke are unforgivable.
BTW, have you not seen Rolen this season play for the REDS? He's terrible. Get used to it. He'll be older next year.
