Phillies vets Rollins, Utley tune out trade talk

Even though the media -- social, mainstream and otherwise -- is a abuzz with the potential for an active trade deadline for the Phillies, the players have been able to ignore most of the chatter. Burrowed into a cocoon where TV and computers are used for watching video on hitting and pitchers, the trade chatter hasn’t filtered into the clubhouse. Or so they say. Though the stands...

Jimmy Rollins Could Be On The Trading Block

Jimmy Rollins – Photo Credit – Keith Allison   2,236 hits. Five-tool player, 3-time All-Star, 4-time Gold Glove winner, MVP in 2007, World Series champion in 08′. Quite an impressive resume for Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins.

Record set, Rollins softens stance on potential trade

The fireworks have stopped and the champagne glasses have been put away. Jimmy Rollins has overtaken Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt as the Phillies’ all-time leader with 2,235 hits. Now, the question that has quietly lingered in the background becomes louder. How much longer will Rollins be a Phillie? Would the 35-year-old shortstop waive his full no-trade rights if the team asked...

Rollins with the Howard, Phillies with the Win

Congratulations to Jimmy Rollins for cranking a homerun, striking out, and committing an error in last night's win over the Reds.  You sir, just collected your first Howard of the season.  Let's be honest, this season is a lost cause for the Phillies, so these are the type of things we need to celebrate, because otherwise it's all just pointless.Check out how bad the...

Rollins’ Historic Place in Phils History

Yesterday, Jimmy Rollins walked two times and hit his fifth home run of the season. Rollins is getting on base and hitting for power: his .359 OBP ranks third and J-Rol ranks ninth in slugging and fifth in OPS among all MLB shortstops. His .262/.359/.428 line is his best since 2008, the year after he won the NL MVP award. It is sort of amazing that Rollins’ accomplishments aren’t...

WATCH: Jimmy Rollins hits walk-off homer, curses out fan

Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins has had quite the start to his 2014 MLB season, so I’m sure last night was his reaction to everything that’s gone on. Rollins hit a solo home run over the left field wall to give the Phillies a 5-4 win over the Miami Marlins at Citizens Bank Park in the top of the 10th inning. Rollins knew it was gone the moment he hit it, and stoical...
