Evaluating Scott Rolen's Hall of Fame case


If I had to wager a guess, I'd say that Rolen is a long shot to be elected to the Hall of Fame within the new 10 year timeframe of eligibility. He is right above the threshold of electability, but so close to it that it's a tough call. Things could possibly change, especially with all the steroid era players being shunned by the voters, but Rolen's inclusion seems unlikely based on past ballot results.
