I don't mean to be rude, but weren't you the one clamoring for Rolen to go to the DL and picking up Miguel Tejada?
After watching this today - another bat may not be a bad idea. Plus, although I like the signings of Springer and Isringhausen, they are risky, because as you have pointed out, neither have pitched in a while and they aren't exactly spring chickens.
I agree that you don't have to give away the farm, but not being willing to part with anyone could prove a bad course to take.
