I do not agree with you as to how much help Troy Glaus will provide Albert Pujols. Glaus was limited to 20 home runs in about 115 games last season. He is an injury risk; equaled to the one of Rolen. The Cardinals need to rebuild. Now if they are just delaying so that their prospects can rise up and play regularly, then I can understand the move however, I believe Rolen could have earned them someone better than another injury prone player. Scott Rolen is only less than a year older.
