JIMMY ROLLINS RUMORS

Jimmy Rollins tries using the whole field to fight off skills decline

When I wrote about Jimmy Rollins‘ struggles a couple months ago, I mentioned that part of the reason to worry about his production at the plate was that his seemingly “bad luck” BABIP may actually not rebound as much as expected, with one of the main factors being that he had become increasingly predictable in hitting slow choppers to the right side. Sure enough, his BABIP...

No nostalgia: Jimmy Rollins leaves Phillies history in the past

Jimmy Rollins spent the better part of two decades playing baseball in Philadelphia, but once he packed up his bags for Los Angeles, he knew he had to have a short memory and immerse himself in his new team. "I cut my ties when I did and I had to leave all that in the past in order to move forward and accept who I am as being a Dodger, so this is where I am today," the 36-year-old...

Let’s get in a sentimental mood as Rollins suits up to play AGAINST the Phillies

Tonight in Los Angeles, for the first time in his lengthy career, Jimmy Rollins will play in a Phillies game for the other team. For the first 2,090 games of his professional baseball career, Jimmy Rollins played in a Phillies game wearing a red cap and a pinstripe or gray uniform (and at times a powder blue alternate or cream home jersey). But not tonight. With the Phillies opening...

John McCain Has A Rough Time With Foul Ball At Diamondbacks Game (Video)

John McCain has accomplished a lot in his lifetime. But apparently there’s one thing he can’t do. The U.S. Senator was in attendance Tuesday for the Arizona Diamondbacks’ contest against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Chase Field. In the seventh inning, Dodgers shortstop Jimmy Rollins fouled off a pop-up that bounced high off the visitors’ dugout — and right toward McCain’s...

Jimmy Rollins’ bad luck may not explain all his struggles at the plate

“Slow start” seems to undersell just how much Jimmy Rollins has underachieved for almost the first two months of 2015, and that’s only exacerbated by the fact that the rest of the Dodgers offense is achieving what not even the biggest homer could’ve imagined. Rollins will obviously be better than his current .172/.255/.295/.551 line (well, it is already now), if for no other...

Jimmy Rollins: Philadelphia ‘not conducive for a superstar’

There was once a time when Jimmy Rollins was a fan favorite in Philadelphia. The 2007 NL MVP won four Gold Glove Awards, made three NL All-Star teams and helped his team capture a World Series title in 2008. Then, the Phillies went down the tubes and Rollins went with them. Now that he has...Read More

Projecting the Los Angeles Dodgers’ starting lineup

With the season just a couple of weeks away, the Los Angeles Dodgers are beginning to send players down to the minor leagues and their final 25-man roster is beginning to take shape. Here’s my best guess at what the lineup will look like for the majority of the season with some random stat projections.   1. Jimmy Rollins- SS .260 average, .330 OBP, 11 home runs, 30 steals...

Dodgers acquire Jimmy Rollins

The Los Angeles Dodgers didn’t waste much time replacing Hanley Ramirez at shortstop. According to multiple reports, the defending NL West champions have acquired veteran Jimmy Rollins from the Philadelphia Phillies (via CSN Philly). The interesting dynamic here is that Rollins waived his no-trade clause to go to the Dodgers. That has been a point of contention over the past couple...

Report: Jimmy Rollins would green light trade to Dodgers

The Philadelphia Phillies would love to move shortstop Jimmy Rollins and the $11 million he’s owed in 2015. However, Rollins has ten and five rights, and would need to give his approval for any trade. He already shot down a trade to the Mets and wouldn’t approve a deal to the A’s. Rollins did say he would accept a move to the Yankees, but Phillies GM Ruben Amaro’s demands...

The Mets tried to trade for Jimmy Rollins

This would have been something else – according to a report from Adam Rubin of ESPN.com, the New York Mets attempted to bring over long-time rival Jimmy Rollins from the Phillies in a trade. Of course, the trade was blocked. The Mets, in need of a shortstop, spoke with the Philadelphia Phillies about acquiring Jimmy Rollins in a trade, sources told ESPNNewYork.com. The pursuit...
