Moving on to the top of the starting lineup, Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins:
Rollins' home run total in 2006 was unprecedented and probably a little bit of an outlier, but I don't see any reason why he can't hover around high-teens/low-20s home runs for a few years. The extra base hits keep coming, he raises his OBP a bit thanks to taking a few more walks, and he steals a few more bags at a still excellent rate thanks to Davey Lopes.
And undoubtedly the greatest shortstop in franchise history. (Insert "damning with faint praise" joke here).
Rollins in 2007: Home runs, more or less than 20?
