If I remember correctly, many people were very much against that trade. That being said, I would have done the trade then. I also would have done it now.
The one thing I would not have done is sign him to the extension. I realize that it helped spread the money out, but why add years to an ageing player?
Also it is kind of dumb to compare EE to Rolen as a 3B, since EE doesn't even play 3B anymore.
