Ok, forget all this OPS/RF/WARP statistical evaluation garbage for a second. Scott Rolen just clearly laid down a first-ballot-hall-of-fame press conference. For anyone who actually cares about the man or what was wrong with him last year, go check out the recap of the press conference or the pitch f/x look at him last year. Otherwise, let’s just recap his wacky and amusing antics.
(Oh yeah, and this picture is decidedly unfunny- that’s Rolen immediately after his career-unhinging injury, an entirely innocuous sounding report of which can be read here).
