Fairly simple question...

Should I switch to Abominations Bloody Ring (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=50790) which I just picked up or keep Clutch of Fortification (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47731)?

I gain:
30 Stamina
9 Def. Rating
16 Dodge Rating
47 Hit rating (puts me at just over 7%)

I lose:
27 Strength
560 Armor

Thoughts?

I would stick with http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47731 unless you want the hit. I know the general consensus is expertise > hit for threat (and survivability perhaps), but I find the nuisances of insufficient hit unappealing. Since the ring has a good bit of hit rating on it, it may be worth it unless you personally don't mind the low hit.

If you have access to Dreamwalker 25 or will in the future, http://www.wowhead.com/?item=50185 is the way to go for replacing Clutch (heroic version even better of course down the line).

If you don't, then I believe your best bet for replacing Clutch is http://www.wowhead.com/?item=48027 without a doubt.

I'm currently using Clutch and http://www.wowhead.com/?item=50404.

I'm using the Exalted Ashen band as well, it's quite nice, although the proc leaves a bit to be desired from what I've noticed. I've yet to be able to get into an IC 25 on my tank, unfortunately, so that Sindragosa ring (although very nice) isn't something that's going to happen any time soon I don't think.

I do like being hit capped (my Wife is a Dreanai healer, so she's always in my group), and i'm well above 32K armor, so i'm not sure that bit of armor is making a huge difference, especially with the +30 Stam... But, bleh... I also have the Signified Ring of Binding (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=49489), but I decided to go with Clutch over that, so maybe I should get rid of it, haha... My bank is full of old gear. =/
