Community Projection: Jimmy Rollins

Moving on to the top of the starting lineup, Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins:

AVG: .279
OBP: .348
SLG: .462
HR: 18
R: 122
RBI: 77
SB: 43

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).
