Rod Bearing Wear

I tore down my motor the other day and found that a few of my rod bearings had wore very fast and irregular. Last summer i threw this motor together on a very tight budget. So i figured id do another rebuild but this time the sky is the limit haha. Anyway the bearing has a copper color wear spot in one end and almost like a polished look around the rest. I dont have a picture of my actual bearing atm. But i found a pic of the exact same look that mine had. My bearing looks exactly like the bearing in the middle of the pic:

The crazy thing is that my motor had less than 10 miles on it and it was fresh. The bearings looked like they had a good 100,000 miles on em haha. Im guessing its my crank or my rods are out of round but i need some advise from the pro's. Thanks guys
