Re: Rolen expected to retire
I also wonder though if Rolen feels a little unfulfilled, the way the season ended. And I'm also wondering if he feels a little miffed that his career ends by him striking out when he had a couple men on base.
Knowing this team, and knowing the future of this team, Rolen may decide the give it one more season. Even if all he does is basically take Cairo's place, Rolen could have a decent enough year to feel he is leaving on a high note.
As long as he knows his everyday status is over, I'd love to have him back as a reserve player.
Opinions are like belly buttons. Everybody has one, and they don't want someone else's shoved into their face.
