All-Star Scott Rolen

Scott Rolen’s 2004 season is one of the best seasons ever for a Cardinal hitter, everyone knows that. His incredible .314/.409/.598 slash line will catch anyone’s attention. Follow that up by the fact that he hit .371 against lefties with a 1.210 OPS.

Cool, he’s a third baseman that rakes? Those aren’t uncommon.

What if I told you he also had a 3.3 dWAR with 30 DRS at third base. Now you’ve got an elite hitter and an elite fielder. Scott Rolen would have the fielding of Brooks Robinson, while also being one of the best hitters at the position.

The only part of the game he would be lacking would be speed, but that not an essential quality for a third baseman. He would more than make up for it in every other aspect of the game.

Rolen is easily my most desired Cardinals player to get put into the game. His batting stance is already in the files, they would just need to design a player to look like him and rake like him. He would have not only one of the best Cardinals cards but one of the most utterly dominant cards in the whole game.

Although baseball isn’t happening, and might not in the near future, many fans get their fix in through video games. Playing with your favorite players and legends together is a rewarding part of a fantastic game, and the game designers could make the game even better with the addition of more legends.
