The Sad End of an Era

Hearing the news of Jimmy Rollins being traded to the Dodgers wasn’t shocking, but it was quite saddening. As the first piece of this core group of players to be dealt, the J-Roll deal signals the end of a very memorable era of Phillies baseball. When I look back on this core group of players, I’ll instantly think about those five straight NL East championships, the potent offense...

Philadelphia Phillies showing commitment to their rebuild

This past week has been one of the busiest weeks in recent Phillies history. Last week, I wrote about how I would be surprised to see Rollins or Utley go, given their value to the city beyond just baseball and now, a week later, Rollins is gone.

Report: Jimmy Rollins would green light trade to Dodgers

The Philadelphia Phillies would love to move shortstop Jimmy Rollins and the $11 million he’s owed in 2015. However, Rollins has ten and five rights, and would need to give his approval for any trade. He already shot down a trade to the Mets and wouldn’t approve a deal to the A’s. Rollins did say he would accept a move to the Yankees, but Phillies GM Ruben Amaro’s demands...
