I’m slowly coming around on Rolen’s career
Sometime last year, someone mentioned that Scott Rolen had a decent shot of making the Hall of Fame. Not first ballot, mind you. But once you’re in, you’re in, regardless of how long it takes. I immediately scoffed at the idea. Scott Rolen? Hall of Fame? No way.
Over time, I have warmed up to that idea some, and the fact that he is one of only three third basemen (along with George Brett and Chipper Jones) and only 29 major leaguers to hit this milestone certainly doesn’t hurt his case.
