And not to say Rolen didn't have a career year last year, but he spent over five weeks on the DL w/ a shoulder injury in May/June.

I realize that, I was just pointing out that he hasn't played the entire season (up to this point).

avg. .272
hr 22
rbi 77
runs 52


despite a lower average, I can't agree that a guy averaging 40 hrs and 150 rbi in a season is having the biggest drop-off.
