He's one of the most fierce competitors I've ever seen. It's his career. His goodbye to baseball, after a lifetime of excellence and hard work.
How would you like it if you were criticized for chosing where you want to work, to end your career, to take your family?
Scott Rolen is a shining example of giving back to the game, on the field, in the clubhouse, in the community.
I'll root for him no matter where he ends up and I'm grateful for the influence he's had on the Reds both on and off the field.
