Rolen for Glaus

I'll say it. I'm upset that we broke up the MV3 but I respect Scott's wishes. This is going to be a very different team than we have seen in prior years but I trust that they will play hard.

Glaus and Rolen are very similar when it comes to the offensive numbers that they put up when they are healthy. Troy Glaus is a 4 time all-star and a past recipient of the World Series MVP award.

Rolen, on the other hand, won Rookie of the Year in 1997 and went on to capture six gold gloves, five of which came in consecutive years. The defense that we lose in Rolen is not comparable at all.

The irony of this all is that Toronto is my favorite team in the AL, if that's even a real league at all.
