Crappy news on Rolen

Postby Dodger Blue » Sat Jul 16, 2005 1:39 am

Jul 15 Despite soreness and fatigue in his surgically repaired left shoulder, Rolen says he wants to be in the lineup everyday, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. "I'm going to do everything I can to be in the lineup everyday," Rolen said. "I'm going to look at the lineup. If I'm in there, I'm going to go play as hard as I can and do the best I can."
Recommendation: His shoulder injury seems to be sapping his power, as he hasn't gone deep in 20 games since returning from the DL.


Is he even worth keeping?

I'd try dealing him -- because he's Scott Rolen -- but IMO after seeing him in 3-4 games since he's returned, I'd dump him w/o hesitation if you've got another good 3B -- if you can't make a deal.

Figures. I had Rolen/Chavez on the same team and finally dealt away Chavez a week or so ago. :-[

I wouldn't be pinning my hopes on him fantasy wise. The Cardinals have NO reason to push him during the regular year since the replacements proved they are at least adequate while he was out, and they will need him more in the post-season than in a virtually meaningless second half.

Yeah, Rolen's been just terrible since he returned from the DL. I'm frustrated because no one in my league has any trade interest in him but as a cardinals fan I just can't bring myself to drop him. He's just taking up space on my bench unfortunately. I keep predicting a monster second half from him but it's becoming more unrealistic with this prolonged slump and recent news that his shoulder is still hurting him. You just can't ignore the fact he hasn't hit a home run since he returned.

I'm concerned.

I wonder why they are letting him play. They have a huge lead in the Central. They should let him heal.

Keeping him sharp for the stretch run is the only reason I can come up with. :-?
