JIMMY ROLLINS RUMORS

Has Anyone Noticed That Jimmy Rollins Is Hitting The Ball Again?

Jimmy Rollins hasn’t had an easy go of it in his first, and likely only, season as a Dodger. I mean, we’ve been talking about his struggles constantly. (Here, here, here, and here.) Because the Dodgers just so happen to have Corey Seager, arguably baseball’s top prospect (to be fair, in part because seemingly every other prospect has already been recalled) playing the same...

Jimmy Rollins gets standing ovation in Philadelphia return (Video)

For 15 years, shortstop Jimmy Rollins was a staple of baseball in Philadelphia. During that span, he brought the Phillies faithful three All-Star appearances, four Gold Gloves, a Silver Slugger, and an MVP award. Not to mention that Rollins played a pivotal role in claiming the 2007 World Series title, one of only two in franchise history. And the City of Brotherly Love definitely...

WATCH: Jimmy Rollins gets big ovation in return to Philly

There are a lot of things you can say about Philadelphia Phillies fans. And throughout the years, Jimmy Rollins had a hot and cold relationship with the city. But when Rollins returned to Citizens Bank Park on Monday for the first time as a visitor, the reception given to him by the Phillies phaithful was fantastic. That must have been quite overwhelming for Rollins, who tipped...

Jimmy Rollins tries using the whole field to fight off skills decline

When I wrote about Jimmy Rollins‘ struggles a couple months ago, I mentioned that part of the reason to worry about his production at the plate was that his seemingly “bad luck” BABIP may actually not rebound as much as expected, with one of the main factors being that he had become increasingly predictable in hitting slow choppers to the right side. Sure enough, his BABIP...

Let’s get in a sentimental mood as Rollins suits up to play AGAINST the Phillies

Tonight in Los Angeles, for the first time in his lengthy career, Jimmy Rollins will play in a Phillies game for the other team. For the first 2,090 games of his professional baseball career, Jimmy Rollins played in a Phillies game wearing a red cap and a pinstripe or gray uniform (and at times a powder blue alternate or cream home jersey). But not tonight. With the Phillies opening...

Jimmy Rollins’ bad luck may not explain all his struggles at the plate

“Slow start” seems to undersell just how much Jimmy Rollins has underachieved for almost the first two months of 2015, and that’s only exacerbated by the fact that the rest of the Dodgers offense is achieving what not even the biggest homer could’ve imagined. Rollins will obviously be better than his current .172/.255/.295/.551 line (well, it is already now), if for no other...

Jimmy Rollins: Philadelphia ‘not conducive for a superstar’

There was once a time when Jimmy Rollins was a fan favorite in Philadelphia. The 2007 NL MVP won four Gold Glove Awards, made three NL All-Star teams and helped his team capture a World Series title in 2008. Then, the Phillies went down the tubes and Rollins went with them. Now that he has...Read More

Projecting the Los Angeles Dodgers’ starting lineup

With the season just a couple of weeks away, the Los Angeles Dodgers are beginning to send players down to the minor leagues and their final 25-man roster is beginning to take shape. Here’s my best guess at what the lineup will look like for the majority of the season with some random stat projections.   1. Jimmy Rollins- SS .260 average, .330 OBP, 11 home runs, 30 steals...

Dodgers acquire Jimmy Rollins

The Los Angeles Dodgers didn’t waste much time replacing Hanley Ramirez at shortstop. According to multiple reports, the defending NL West champions have acquired veteran Jimmy Rollins from the Philadelphia Phillies (via CSN Philly). The interesting dynamic here is that Rollins waived his no-trade clause to go to the Dodgers. That has been a point of contention over the past couple...
