I just finished writing an article at Beyond the Boxscore detailing Jimmy Rollins career and his current contract extension, as well as where it fits in the scheme of the shortstop market. Here's a preview:Rollins was hitting .262/.304/.378 after August 22nd's game against San Francisco. After that (the start of his hit streak, which is impressive no matter how much I bash reliever hoarder extraordinare Ed Wade today), up until today, his season line is .288/.333/.431, with a .386/.435/.629 line during the streak. His VORP has increased to the point (47.6; 7th among shortstops) where it has outdistanced his PECOTA projection of 34.9 VORP. Is he really an elite player though, or even a star? I think not. Two things: First off, I like EqA better than VORP, and his EqA says he is essentially league average offensively. Secondly, Net Runs Above Average confirms that he is essentially league average (actually a tick below if you want to be precise). What am I attempting to get at?"> Hope you enjoy it, thanks for reading! Also, authors of this site, I'd like to talk to you about something pretty time sensitive. If you could e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org, I'd appreciate it.
