The fact that we didn't retain Parise doesnt mean we are going to go out and get a player for the same calibur or price any time soon.
I think if we hadn't signed Rolston the money, and roster space would have been there. Especially if Gio had only wanted $3.5 million to stay. I never liked the Rolston deal, and the most impressive stretch I saw with him during his second tenure was the second half of 10/11. Hate to single him out though. That Pandolfo contract signed in 08 was a really bad one for that time in his career. He fell off a cliff after that.
