First of all, I like Scott Rolen, I really do.
I thought the trade for him, while giving up a lot, addressed a very specific need - leadership in the clubhouse.
While I think he will announce his retirement in the next few weeks, many are saying lets bring him back - likely as a role player.
The problem(s) with bringing Rolen back
1) He can only play one position. Most 'bench' guys can play multiple positions
2) Should the regular thirdbaseman go down with an injury, Rolen is not capable of playing everyday for an extended period of time - meaning, if you carry Rolen as a back-up you better have someone else capable of playing 3B on the bench or in AAA.
What do others think?
