Storyline: Consistent and predictable are the Phillies

Please, scroll down for this edition of Genuine Insight: One More Time. TAL’S STORYLINES Welcome, Newcomers: This article represents the thinking of a baseball man in my opinion. Reading people is the answer to their...

Early Trade Rumors: Rollins, JMJ, Utley, Brown

As the baseball world wonders what the Phillies are, the Phillies have been one of the most interesting teams on the rumor pages. Most, like Pat Gallen’s 97.5 FM co-host Jayson Stark, have concluded that the Phillies don’t have a whole lot of pieces that would return much value much like we did ten days ago. Yet, in that time, the Phillies have won seven out of nine games and...

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. He recently broke the team record for hits, passing Mike Schmidt this past Saturday, and now he stands alone as the Phillies all-time...

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...

Jimmy Rollins sets all-time Phillies hits record

The day finally came. After eight straight games with a hit each, Jimmy Rollins continually inched towards Mike Schmidt's Phillies record until he tied it with 2,234 hits on Friday night. All eyes were on Rollins today and Rollins pleased the fans at Citizens Bank Park. In the fifth inning...

Phillies Shortstop Jimmy Rollins Steals Two Bases On One Pitch (GIF)

Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins has 435 career stolen bases — good for second behind Billy Hamilton on the franchise’s all-time list — so it’s not necessarily news when he nabs a bag. When he steals two bases on one pitch, however, that’s a whole different story. The Phillies were taking on the San Diego Padres on Wednesday when Rollins hit a single in...

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...
