I don't know what it is. He looks like he's aged 20 years since 2004. Unbelievable what has happened to this Cardinals lineup. In 2004, I think that was one of the best lineups I've ever personally had a chance to watch, with Pujols, Rolen and Edmonds, but Rolen and Edmonds have completely fallen off the face of the earth. Rolen used to be able to drive the ball to all fields, he was a strong line drive hitter... he just isn't doing that anymore. He seems weaker and his bat speed seems a lot slower. Just something about him isn't right. Edmonds on the other hand still shows flashes of that big uppercut swing and his powerful stroke but he has really faded. The Cards are doomed if those two don't get it going. I believe Rolen will get it going somewhat, maybe 23/90/.290, although a far cry from 2004 numbers, still not terrible.

Rolen had that one big game against the Cubs. Other than that he's been worse than horrible!! I've been trying to swing a trade for a mediocre 3B, and I can't even land Beltre or Teahan!! I'm not going to dump Rolen, but man he needs to step it up!! :-t

I dropped him in two leagues. He was killing my team. I don't miss him one bit. :-[

I usually don't like dropping established guys this early, but Rolen just doesn't look good out there. Add in the fact that Billy Butler is already hitting like a batting champ (3 of his first 4 games have been multihit... :-° ), and I think it's time to put Scotty out to pasture...
