Throughout the first decade of the 2000’s, it could be argued that Jimmy Rollins was the heart of the Philadelphia Phillies…or was he the motor?

It is not widely known but Rollins actually holds the Phillies’ franchise record with 2,306 Hits.  Rollins did almost all of that from the leadoff position where he batted for the Phils for over a decade.  Using his speed he would lead the National League in Triples four times and would steal 30 or more bases ten times.  Named an All-Star three times, Rollins’ best season was actually in a year when he wasn’t chosen for the mid-season classic, 2007 where he won the National League MVP with a career-high 30 Home Runs.  Despite his small stature (5’ 7”) Jimmy Rollins would show decent power numbers with 231 taters and it can not be forgotten what an asset he was defensively in the Philadelphia infield.

In 2008 Rollins would lead Philadelphia to the World Series where the team won their first title since 1980.  He may not make the Hall of Fame but the Philadelphia Baseball Wall of Fame should see the name of “Jimmy Rollins” etched into it one day.
