(Philly.com) It’s up to you to tell us who should be part of the Phillies All-Time team. During the winter, we’ll unveil one position at a time for you to vote on. After all the votes are tallied, and all the position filled, we’ll release the results. Make your vote count! Granny Hamner (16 seasons, 3x All-Star): .263 avg, .689 OPS, 103 HR, 705 RBI, 16.3 WAR Larry Bowa (12 seasons, 5x All-Star, 1x WS Champ): .264 avg., .624 OPS, 13 HR, 421 RBI, 288 SB, 19.4 WAR Jimmy Rollins (13 seasons, 3x All-Star, 1x MVP, 1x WS champ): .270 avg., .760 OPS, 193 HR, 793 RBI, 403 SB, 40.3 WAR Who we’re voting for: -Pat Gallen: It’s clear that Jimmy Rollins is the greatest shortstop in team history. I think the better question would be, how high does he rank among all players of this generation? He’s in the Top 40 among active players in WAR, with several players ahead of him being involved in PED’s in one way or another. -Don M.: On a team with Chase Utley and Ryan Howard it’s sometimes easy to overlook just how good a player Jimmy Rollins has been. J-Roll’s 162 game averages include a .270 batting average, 17 HRs, and 36 steals, all while sporting a plus arm and stellar defense at one of baseball’s premium positions. Rollins never had the On Base Percentage that many fans would’ve liked, and it’s obvious that his range at SS is declining, but I think it’s fair to say that every team in MLB would’ve loved to have Rollins penciled into their lineup for the past 12+ seasons. -Ian Riccaboni: Jimmy Rollins leads all Phillies shortstops in hits by 226, doubles by 150, triples by 24, home runs by 90, walks by 248, runs by 366, RBIs by 88, stolen bases by 115, and fWAR by 26.5. Rollins has also saved over 40 runs in the field and earned over 79 on the basepaths. Statistically, this one isn’t even close and it doesn’t include his Gold Gloves, All-Star games, his 2007 impersonation of Nostradamus or his 2008 World Series win. This one might be bigger in separation than Mike Schmidt v. the field. Note: There is a poll embedded within this post, please visit the site to participate in this post's poll.
