1- Jimmy Rollins (2000 – 2014)

Rollins leads in nearly every statistical category among Phillies shortstops, including games, runs, hits, doubles, triples, home runs, RBI and stolen bases. He won the MVP in 2007 after hitting .296 with 38 doubles, a league-leading 20 triples, 30 home runs, 94 RBI and 41 stolen bases. One of the key components during the best era in Phillies baseball, Rollins is also a four-time Gold Glove award winner and has a career fielding percentage of .983. He’s likely to get a decent amount of consideration for the Hall of Fame and a certain Phillies Wall of Fame inductee in the near future.
