Rockin' (and rollin') the Hall vote

CSI: Box Score Answer

The only clue you needed was the name Mulder in the very short pitching line, along with the news last week that Mark Mulder has begun a comeback attempt by signing a minor league contract with the Angels. This fragment is from the last game Mulder pitched in the majors, back on July 9, 2008. A bad shoulder forced him to retire as a player -- he's been an analyst on ESPN since 2011 -- but he's trying to return at age 36.

Is Mulder kidding himself? Well, he's younger than former teammate Tim Hudson, along with several dozen other active pitchers. Plus, one appearance in 2014 would give him 10 seasons in the majors, making him officially eligible for the Hall of Fame. (The Baseball Hall of Fame, that is, not the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.)

So, best wishes to Mark, and here's hoping we see his name in more box scores.
