"The guy I think could be really good in center is Adam Dunn. If someone asked me if Dunn could be a center fielder for the next 10 years, if he started working on it, no one could explain to me why he couldnít do it." - Brad Kullman
I hope Walt got a jar of vaseline in the deal
What are you, people? On dope? - Mr Hand
I would have been okay with EE and Roenicke... maybe. But Stewart, too? It's not like Rolen is on the upside of his career... I still think this is a stupid move.

scared the total _uck out of me, I officially hate the trade dealine
So, with that haul, the Jays have to be picking up some of Rolen's salary, right?

I'm slightly less angry!!!!

Put an end to the Lost Decade.
I'm still kind of bullish on this deal. But I've at least talked myself off the cliff I was about to jump off of.
I'm OK with this deal.
I believe the FO lost faith in EE becoming the consistent player they needed. Rolen is a temporary fix until a younger player is ready, to be sure, but I'm fine with taking a shot on the guy.

Player for player wise, I love this deal. I hope the economics don't hinder the club.
I've seen enough of Walt Jocketty.
They got friggin' hosed in this deal.
They must really think Rolen is still what he was seven years ago.

I have come to expect those types of scenarios with the Cardinals and it makes me sick." - Lidspinner
"My mission is to be the ray of hope, the guy who stands out there on that beautiful field and owns up to his mistakes and lets people know it's never completely hopeless, no matter how bad it seems at the time. I have a platform and a message, and now I go to bed at night, sober and happy, praying I can be a good messenger." -Josh Hamilton
