Mike Lacy

A snapshot of his numbers and career would seem to say no.

But an MVP award and a team's all-time leader in hits will go a long way towards swaying some voters.

If I had to guess, I'd say he doesn't get in.

Fred Jones

He is not a Hall of Famer. He didn't hustle, except for once: When he was chugging around the bases on the last day of the 2007 season for his 20th triple to complete the 20-20-20-20 feat.

schmenkman

Just imagine how special he must have been to get those 19 other triples without hustling! I guess those should have been inside the park home runs.

The fact is Rollins got more out of his 5'8" frame than just about anybody not named Altuve or Morgan.

Steve

I always go back to this when the SS position is brought up. If Ozzie Smith is in, Rollins has to go in. Trammel and Larkin are in...Vizquel will get in at some point. Different era, but Rollins was almost as good of a fielder, better hitter (more hits, home runs and RBIs in 2 fewer seasons). Ozzie has a slightly higher OBP and more steals, but he played two more seasons than Rollins. I liked Ozzie, but besides steals and gold gloves, his offensive numbers stunk. You can't tell me that a guy gets in solely because he's a terrific fielder and can steal bases. I just hate the bias these voters have.
