Roster projections via MLB Depth Charts. Jimmy Rollins, Mark Teixeira and Prince Fielder will enter the fray in '22, followed by Francisco Rodriguez in '23. Not that there's anything defining about the 400/200 club. I will pretend that I'm a high school student and I've been given the assignment of presenting an argument in favor of Rollins being a Hall of Famer. Only 12 shortstops have ever been on base more often than Rollins (3,413 times). As eluded to before, one of the big things that will work in J Roll’s favor is his legendary status in Philly. With the hand-wringing over the steroid players, a logjam from newbies like Mike Mussina, Craig Biggio and Mike Piazza along with newcomers Greg Maddux, Curt Schilling, Jeff Kent and then Pedro Martinez, Randy Johnson and Ken Griffey waiting in the wings, Rollins is going to have to wait in line. Some people wish that's what the Hall of Fame was, but that reality has long since departed. Larkin also has more RBI’s, a higher OBP and a higher slugging percentage. He finished as the all-time hits (2,306), at-bats (8,628) and doubles (479) leader for the Phillies and helped lead the Phillies to a World Series Championship in 2008. By scoring more runs than Ozzie Smith or Joe Cronin, Rollins consistently did his duty as a leadoff hitter. Typically Hall of Famers are players who were far and away the best at their position for a period of time and it’s tough to label a 3-5 year stretch where that was the case for J Roll. He was recently hired by the Phillies as a special advisor. Rollins led the league in triples four times, steals once and runs once. 2,235 on … For instance, guys like Tim Raines, Jeff Bagwell, Larry Walker, Lou Whitaker, Luis Tiant, Ted Simmons, and former Phillie Dick Allen are on the outside looking in. An MVP award is something that could make up for where J Roll’s lifetime numbers and other achievements fall short. Jimmy is special. His 1,421 runs are good for 86th and 936 RBI from pretty much always being in a table-setting position is pretty solid as well. Ready for the shortstops who are on this list? Blue Box seats can be obtained by purchasing a season ticket, mini plan or flex bank. He was recently hired by the Phillies as a special advisor. And, as I've already made clear, I no longer believe there is any set of magic numbers that makes any player an automatic Hall of Famer. (Reading, PA) - The Reading Fightin Phils, proud double-A affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies, have announced former R-Phils shortstop Jimmy Rollins will be inducted into the Penn State Children's Hospital Baseballtown Hall of Fame on Tuesday, August 6th at 7:10 p.m. when the R-Phils host the Hartford Yard Goats. Angels? His total counting numbers do not impress. Career offensive numbers are quite comparable, but there are some notable discrepancies. There is also quite a large gap in career WAR, with Larkin having compiled 70.4 lifetime to J Roll’s 46.3. And that'll be a fun discussion, too, because Jimmy Rollins has had a fascinating career. 69% Upvoted. A common misconception in Hall of Fame discussions is that it only includes the absolute, upper-tier elite. Of all the members of the 08′ squad, Hamels has the best chance at Cooperstown. Rollins was one of the core members of a team that won five consecutive NL East titles. Hamels has had a very long, highly consistent career and is closing in on some surefire Hall of Fame milestones, including 3,000 strikeouts. 2007 was far and away Jimmy’s best season statistically, a campaign in which he slashed .296/.344/.531, led the league in runs scored, stole 41 bases and hit a career high 30 home runs. Rollins compiled more walks (51) than strikeouts (47) in 598 plate appearances and 532 at-bats. How did Rollins' teams fare? Rollins played for the Reading Phillies during the 1999 season. His production has dipped off in recent years and the numbers could lead some to believe that Rollins is a bit of a compiler -- he’s getting his numbers and milestones without much behind them. Whether he makes the Hall of Fame cut remains to be seen, but there is certainly a case to be evaluated. Because there is zero chance the person making that argument hears Dave Bancroft and reacts with a knee-jerk "HALL OF FAMER.". I love watching him play and playing alongside him.
