not even worth responding to.



Actually you did, but I had already qualified my initial statement, so your scorn is wasted.Even in a down year he's a good SS, that was a little too much I admit.

However, to put it another way- if your song starts out with a flat note, it's gonna suck now matter how good the music looks on paper.

Rollins is a bent reed, a broken string, an out of tune key.

Wait, why is Rollins a cancer and why isn't he considered a "real" short stop?

He's got the best fielding percentage among short stops. Sure he's having a horrible offensive year, but I wouldn't consider that to make him a team cancer.

Man Ryan Howard has been awful lately. I knew he wouldn't make the greatest contact, but a sub .800 OPS isn't what I was expecting this year. :-[
