Really! Scott's so greedy, he doesn't leave anyone on base for Renteria to drive in (and I've got Renteria...)

He could very easily be top 10 in runs scored. Stealing bases and 25-30 HRs are big pluses as well. I think you can trade for him very cheap, or at least undervalued right now.


Agreed! Last season I had picked him up in ealy August off of waivers and he was huge for me! He hit with power, average and stole bases. I play in a H2H league and in the semifinals he stole 6 bases in a week for me!!! Then in the next week (the finals) he pulled an oblique muscle and was lost for the season...I lost in the championship. :~(

Just a little warning, he is very fragile...

Along with Sanders being fragile you have to add the fact that he's so streaky. He can look great for a week, then go hitless for 4 games, striking out 2 or 3 times a game.

I have him and I'm happy with him so far, but it kills me when he comes up with a guy on 3rd and 0 outs and strikes out (which has happened three times in two days).

Just read that they changed the scoring in yesterday's game and Rolen is getting credited with a triple and 2 more RBIs on a play that was originally called an error. I would hope that when Yahoo gets their s*** together they'll update this.

Yup- Beltrans_Boy--- you better make up your mind- you just said Yahoo is a premier provider and now you are talking about it having problems!!! you are a fool!

That's awesome. So that means he has 23 RBIs now including the 4 from today? He'd be on pace for 300 RBIs!! Go Rolen!

yep, 23 RBI's.

I read that Yahoo makes score corrections on Sundays but Rolen isn't currently on the list. I'd like to send them a note that he should be added along with a complaint that their service is simply embarrassing today. A glitch for a few minutes is one thing. They're working on about 5 hours now. Probably outsourced the support to India :-t
