Is Scott Rolen a Hall of Famer?
I don’t have the energy this morning to recap last night’s game. The Reds won and let’s just leave it at that.
While browsing the Reds blogs, I came across an interesting piece from John Fay. Only two third basemen (who have played 50 percent of their career games at third base) in MLB history have recorded at least 2,000 hits, 300 home runs, 1,200 RBI and 500 doubles. One is Hall of Famer George Brett and the other is future Hall of Famer Chipper Jones.
Scott Rolen needs two doubles to join this elite club. He currently has 2,001 hits, 308 home runs, 1,247 RBI and 498 doubles.
Rolen’s defense is exceptional, even at this stage of his career.
So, Reds Country, are we looking at a future Hall of Famer?
