What can you guys tell me about Jimmy Rollins? I know he hasn't run this spring. Any thoughts as to how valuable he is going to be? Anyone know of any good articles about him?

Rollins has 2 steals and 1 caught stealing so far, so I'd say he's running some. I don't know how he'll do. I took him as the last SS drafted in a 12-team league because he was the only SS out there that could give me 20 steals, so I'm hoping he does well. He's been in the #2 spot in the lineup for most of the games he's played, so that's good too (I have Thome also).

I have him at ~.270 90R 10HR 60 RBI and 20 SB.....The last article I read on him said he has been working with Tony Gwynn on cutting down on his strike outs....and trying to get on base more...should help him out alot if he does.... :-)

I agree with the K's issue. When he plays scrappy and gets on base, he's dangerous.

He added another CS today and I'm not sure how to take that. It's great that he's running, but seems his % was bad last year too.

If I owned him, I'd prefer he get caught stealing rather than not attempt any at all.

That being said, I don't know why he's batting second when Polanco is probably much better suited for the spot. I don't think any manager really wants a .320 OBP who whiffs a lot in the 2nd spot.

But as long as he's batting first or second, he has value.

They have been working with him on bunting for a basehit, vs his usual swinging for the fences
