Rolen stated he didn't want to go to ST. He has said you won't see him leaning against a fungo, so he clearly at this time has no aspirations to coach. He's made a ton of money, waaaaaay more than Cairo, so he doesn't NEED a job.
Why does everyone label a player his age as indecisive when it comes to continuing as a ball player? Seems to me that this is the time for him to have questions and doubts about enduring the rigors of a MLB schedule. My retirement from working is at the very minimum, 11 years away and I have doubts...
“I’ll just take my walk,” he said, to laughter. One reporter followed up that Hamilton might be able to score from first on a single. “If he does, that’s great. Isn’t that crazy? Think about that: I hit a single and got an RBI. Like I said, crude stat, right?”
