Rollins - any predictions?

Postby ramble2 » Sun Mar 30, 2003 5:09 pm

I'm completely at a loss for what to expect out of Jimmy Rollins this year. Is he even going to be leading off? Are they going to let him steal bases? Anyone out there feel like they've got a good handle on what to expect from him this year?

He is definitely a big question mark this year. I expect him to be better than last year, and would expect about a .250 average, 35SB, 10-15HR, and 80 runs scored. He is currently the leadoff hitter, and should stay there unless he really sucks again....

I think he will improve, but will not be a huge fantasy factor. You never know though.

Rollins

Postby joe61878 (guest) » Mon Mar 31, 2003 9:02 pm

The word on Philly Sportsradio from some is that Rollins is trying to hit home runs more than he's trying to get on base. I think he'll have a similar season to last year (the stats one guy put in his post were around my prediction). Nothing spectacular unless he learns how to get on base more.

Today, he was 0 for 5 against Florida -- on a day when everyone else in a Phillies uniform seemed to be able to get on base, even Kevin Millwood.

Bright spot...he could get traded to Oakland w/Brett Myers for Tejada...but he probably wouldn't do any better there. I don't think that trade will happen anyway, though.

I don't see that trade going down either, although it would be interesting to see Tejada with the Phillies.

I agree - Rollins should improve upon last years numbers but not be great. He'll at most be valuable in the stolen bases category, sort of like an Eric Young.

Joe is dead on. I live in the Philly area and the beat off the street is that he has a loooong ways to go before he can hit leadoff. He's trying to be a cleanup hitter at the #1 spot in the order.

Gonna be a long year at the SS position for me this year. I cant stand having Rollins. You go from having Arod last year to Rollins this year. Really makes you thankful for what you had.

Yikes. This is exactly what I'm worried about. I have an opportunity to trade Rollins for Furcal - another SS with question marks. Any thoughts?
