Fantasy Baseball: Suck-watch '09

Jimmy Rollins, who has yet to get anything going 3 months into the season, came back last night from his 4-game benching, a.k.a. "rest", to go 0-5 with 2 K's. His batting average is now .207 and he hasn't had a hit in 24 at bats. At the rate his average is falling, I'm guessing he'll barely be hitting his weight by the end of this month.

At least one of my fellow Fantasy leaguers is dropping the S-word.

Cliff Lee, coming off a career year in 2008 (22-3 with a Cy Young Award) had his worst start in 3 seasons yesterday. At least in terms of innings pitched, as Lee was done after 3 having given up 7 ER. This from a pitcher who was working a streak of 47-starts going at least 5-innings, the longest such stretch in 30 years.

It's not all his fault, as the Indians are close to, if not the biggest disappointment in Baseball right now and Lee has had multiple good starts and been hung out to dry by his offense but this is ridiculous. Certainly no one should expect anybody to follow a 22-3 season with a similar level of near-perfection (well, maybe Clemens) but 4-7 halfway through the season? Really?
