Phillies 2010 Report Card: Jimmy Rollins
by Scott Butler 1/21/11

Now it is time for the leader, team quarterback, team captain, etc. for the Phillies: Jimmy Rollins.

Jimmy Rollins had another very forgettable season in 2010. After going through a horrible slump in 2009, I didn't think it was possible Rollins could get worse, but he did. J-Roll missed half the season due to injury, but he wasn't much of a factor when he did play. He finished with a dreadfully low .243 average and .320 on-base percentage. His 48 runs scored prorates to about 88 runs scored in a full season, which is way to low for a leadoff hitter in this lineup.

One thing that hasn't changed one single bit is his defense. J-Roll still mans the shortstop position as well as anyone in the game. No matter what he does at the plate, Rollins never, I mean NEVER lets it affect his defense.

Overall Grade: C-

I hate to give Jimmy such a low grade, but his numbers are just not very good. It is hard to be much of a sparkplug when you are not effective on the field.
