Mastrodonato: Scott Rolen is a worthy Hall of Famer, so stop it with the ‘Hall of Very Good' talk

All the crotchety gatekeepers of the Baseball Hall of Fame had a rough go of it on Tuesday night.
With the announcement that Scott Rolen was the only player of this year's selection process to be inducted into Cooperstown, the complaints could be heard from every corner of the internet.
Here's the song of the gatekeepers who preferred Rolen not get in: “It's not the Hall of Very Good!”

If it was the Hall of Very Good, Robin Ventura would be in there, Jeff Kent wouldn't have come nearly 30% of the votes short in his...

The National Baseball Hall of Fame gained a single new member on Tuesday night.
Scott Rolen, the eight-time Gold Glove winner at third base, made it in narrowly with 76.3% of the Baseball Writers' Association of America's vote. This was Rolen's sixth year on the ballot, and he finally made the push across the 75% threshold needed for election, getting in by a slim five-vote margin.
Rolen was a star from the beginning, taking home the 1997 National League Rookie of the Year award. After six seasons-plus with the Philadelphia Phillies, Rolen was traded to St. Louis in 2002 and later helped...

NEW YORK - Slick-fielding third baseman Scott Rolen was elected to baseball's Hall of Fame on Tuesday with five votes to spare above the 75% needed.

New inductee Scott Rolen is one of four players who received Verducci's vote this year. Don't let this election fool you. The flow of players into the Hall of Fame is accelerating. Here are the number of players annually elected by the baseball writers to the Hall of Fame in my first six years voting 30 years ago: 1, 1, 1, 0, 1, 1. Voting was so tough that 324-game winner Don Sutton waited five years to get in. Here are the number of players elected in the same manner in the past six years: 4, 4, 2, 0, 1, 1. Five electees in six years gave way to 12 in six years. What changed? The volume...
