I couldn't possibly disagree with this more. Rolen is the perfect example of a competitive grind it out baseball player. This is just my opinion, but I think Griffey had a lazy laid back mentality, and didn't have the same personality about it at all. Rolen has added a ton to this team over the last couple years, and hes another decent bat in the lineup that could possibly hurt a team if phillips and votto get on. I like Rolen, even though he's injury prone and getting older.
