Please say he will not be out to long. He was my first pick in all leagues. This would be a huge blow to all my teams. :~(

From the original source at http://blastmagazineblogs.com/sports/20 ... e-in-foot/ in the comments, the owner of the blog Micah Warren expressed his confidence in his source:

Point taken, but I seriously doubt this will result in Rollins coming back sooner than expected.

Why are you so difficult? It gets old.


WTF? Yoda might not always be a ball of sunshine, but what could you possibly have gleaned from his quote here that you took offense to????

I have been dealing with absent 2B and SS spots in one league where I have Rollins/Kendrick. Theriot and Kaz are holding it down for me, but I hope Rollins at least is back in short order.

Well if it is a break then we can never, ever trust Philly management or their training staff again.

Rollins was overrated anyways. He belonged in the Toluwitzki tier of SS's - well behind Hanley and Jose. No way is he a first rounder.

Hugh? What are you basing this on, being a Mets fan? Nobody knew he was going to get hurt, he was easily a top 6-7 pick going into this draft. Rollins beat Tulo in EVERY single category last year...so how is he in the same tier? I think you should quit fantasy baseball...
