Rolen joins the Reds!

Well the Jays managed to trade a great clubhouse player in Scott Rolen to the Cincinnati Reds on deadline day.  I have been a huge fan of Rolen since he broke into the league as a Philly and won rookie of the year in 1997.  He has a great bulldog mentality both at the plate and in the field, something a lot of pros could learn from.  In return the Jays managed to get some good pieces in Edwin Encarnation and maybe a future closer in Zach Stewart.

It was great seeing Rolen in a BlueJays uniform, but after quitely requesting a trade closer to home I wish him the best of luck making the Reds a better team.
