Confident Crawford Eager to Fill Rollins' Shoes

Now that Jimmy Rollins is officially a Dodger, the focus of the Phillies shortstop position doesn't really focus on Freddy Galvis. Rather, the depature of Rollins will make fans zero in more so on the development of top prospect, JP Crawford. Earlier this week, Crawford along with Aaron Nola and...

Los Angeles Dodgers rumors: Yoan Moncada edition

The Los Angeles Dodgers added Jimmy Rollins and Howie Kendrick to their infield, giving them arguably one of the strongest infields they have had in years. With Adrian Gonzalez at first, Kendrick and Rollins up the middle and Juan Uribe at third, 2015 should be a phenomenal year for the Dodgers’ infield defensively. Gonzalez and Rollins have four gold gloves each, and Uribe could...

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.
