Re: Fay: Rolen wants to play - do you want him back?
I am more sympathetic to my fav team having all 25 spots on the roster filled to maximum capacity. Rolen has made millions of dollars playing this game. Rolen has been a great teammate since joining our fav team. He is and has been an injury risk. Time to move forward.
I agree -- you want the best team you can get. I think it's possible that carrying Rolen will improve the bench -- they have said Hannahan can back up SS, in which case Rolen would replace Izturis or Donald. That could work.
At the very least, having him in spring training offers valuable insurance in case a player goes down.
