But during that 6 year stretch, he was easily one of the best hitters in baseball .. dont look at the numbers, because this was before the dawn of steroids and the offensive explosion of the 90's. at the time there was Tony Gwynn, Wade Boggs, and Don Mattingly ..



i agree as well....mattingly was as good as there was for about 5 or 6 years, but saying that dale murphy was also as good a player as there was in baseball for about 5 years or so and he did not make it to the hall of fame either...so i cant say for certain that mattingly would have made it to the hall without the injury.......

What a second, Scott Rolen is from Indiana, does that mean???

Let's see if everyone from Indiana is cursed:
Dan Quayle - yeah he's cursed
David Letterman - him too
Jane Pauley - yep
Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. - same here
Larry Bird - afraid not. sorry but this blows the whole theory out of the water plus John Mellencamp isn't cursed either. Little story about Jack and Diane... :-D
