he got sick

You should know that Rolen was out for about 2 weeks with a mysterious illness - at first team doctors said it was bronchitis, but then they said they didn't know what it was. He apparently is not quite at full strength even now that he's been back in the lineup for more than a week.

But I wouldn't worry too much. Rolen's OBP so far this year is only .009 below his career average, and his SLG is only .029 lower. I imagine he will pick up with both when he's fully healthy, which will probably just take a few more weeks.

Fantasy Baseball managers are constantly neurotic people, ready to drop great players if they go through a cold stretch. it's only may and he was out for like 10 games because he was sick. give him a little more time, he'll be fine.

Yeah his average was low but he gave us 3 runs, 5 RBI, a HR, and a couple walks last week. That's really nothing to be complaining about. Especially considering that he was probably a 8th round pick or later for you.

Some people are never happy.
