Baldelli Shut Down

The Devil Rays have decided to shut down Rocco “Fantasy Heartbreaker” Baldelli, for the rest of the year. Also Baldelli is contemplating retirement at the ripe old age of 26. That’s right Rocco is having chronic hamstring problems, and thinking about calling it quits. I might be wrong, but didn’t Rocco quit three years ago. This guy was supposed to be the next Joe Dimaggio remember? At this point we’ll settle for Dom Dimaggio. Has there been another athlete that has broken as many fantasy owners’ hearts as this guy? When he came up, he was touted as the next big thing, a five tool athlete, etc. Then it was one hamstring problem after another. I guess his heart was just as weak as his legs, because now it seems like the end might be near in this sad chapter of baseball lore. Rocco we barely knew ya! I hope you saved some of your paychecks, because I sure lost a dime or two drafting you every year.
