    Re: Heyman says Rolen to the Reds

    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.

    Re: Heyman says Rolen to the Reds

    So, with that haul, the Jays have to be picking up some of Rolen's salary, right?

    Right?

If they're lucky, that's just assuming he misses his average amount of time that he's missed the past few years and not more, which is a big assumption with a guy in his mid 30s with a bad back.
    Agreed. It's a vapid move to stat with, so at the very least let's hope we traded very little of future relevance for him. I don't believe Alonso for a moment, unless it's a greatly expanded deal from the Jays side. Walt's not moving his top draft pick in this scenario, IMO.

    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.

    Re: Heyman says Rolen to the Reds

    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.

    Don't you feel better about this than you would if the Alonso rumor hadn't been floated first?

    Player for player wise, I love this deal. I hope the economics don't hinder the club.

    They got friggin' hosed in this deal.

    Stewart?

    They must really think Rolen is still what he was seven years ago.

    They better be paying all of it.
