I was hoping for good things from Gordon this season and this definitely derails any predictions i had

Normally I don't make posts like this, but nothing like losing Mora and Gordon in the same week.

Not much out there in terms of a replacement. I picked up Rolen and hopefully I can swing a buy low trade soon.

He had been seriously sucking it up to start the year, I guess this had something to do with it. I went with Lowell, though Rolen was also available. 3B is super shallow this year. %-6

here's hoping this is the cause for his non-performance to date. 6-9 weeks is the estimated timeline for a return. looks like teahen will cover 3rd, for what its worth.

I made the same move, but considered Rolen as well. Certainly not a fun decision. :-b
