JIMMY ROLLINS RUMORS

Phillies desperately need change even though CEO says GM will return

Just about any way you slice it, this has been a disaster season for the Phillies. They come into Tuesday at 63-74 -- 10 games back of a wild-card spot -- and are wasting excellent seasons from Cole Hamels, Jimmy Rollins and Chase Utley. Given their ages (both 35), it might be the last excellent season for both Rollins and Utley. Philadelphia is on pace to win a game or two more...

Rollins with the Howard, Phillies with the Win

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.

Jimmy Rollins makes strong case for the Hall of Fame

Jimmy Rollins scored his 1,200th run on Friday, making him the fourth player since 1921 to score at least 1,200 runs with 400 or more steals. Impressive numbers, indeed, and. . .
