How are the First Impressions of Jimmy Rollins?

SDS

I need a SS and was considering getting him because he is a switch hitter and his price isn't too high...

SDS

He’s pretty beastly out there. I’m grinding the affinity Tatis but if I wasn’t I’d say Jimmy is worth the 30k or so he’s going for. Price might go up tomorrow too when he goes out of packs

SDS

Not sure why he only has mid 60s power, this was the year he had 38 doubles 20 triples and 30 homers.
but then he also had 716 ABs so I guess that lowered his averages.
pinch hitting so far, as I've had gurriel and story at short for Tor and col hr, he hits lasers and is really fast in a small sample size

J-Roll is a beast I'm batting like 380 ish with him and his swing is smooth. He's my leadoff man and he fields well.

If you compare LS players with a similar OPS, they all have similar power numbers as well. Weird that OPS is their baseline, but whatever

Jimmy has been great for me.

Also, Jimmy has been great. Far better than Schmidt has been for me. Really getting tired of them picking 1974.

Is Rollins similar to Reyes last year? Managed to pack Rollins last night with free stubs, I've been playing gold Chipper at SS so I am tempted to keep Jimmy.

I have been too scared to start RS, been playing events but can't work Rollins on my team. Rollins gives me an all diamond lineup if I keep him, so maybe it is time to start RS.

SDS

Managed to get him in a show pack from conquest the other day. He's good, haven't played a ton inline yet but have hit well with him so far. He has a "short" strike zone. I usually hit better with those guys. He also runs well and is a good fielder.
