J.P. Crawford on fast track to replace Rollins

J.P. Crawford – Photo Credit – Tom Hagerty There is no easy task in professional sports. It’s not easy to become and remain a starting shortstop with a Major League Baseball team, especially when you are heralded as the guy replacing a legend on that club. New York Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorious will soon find that out as he has the task of replacing Derek Jeter. That is...

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. The caveat was if the team got an offer they couldn’t refuse or if the player decided to take one last go at a title. Both of these...

Eflin & Windle may be heading to Philly for Rollins; moves lost in the shuffle

So many Dodgers moves were made on Wednesday that it was really overwhelming. I must’ve made about 500 cocaine/meth jokes about Andrew Friedman and Farhan Zaidi the other night, simply because I was exhausted just watching all this unfold, and you know they didn’t sleep for like four days. Understandably then, some minor moves got lost in the shuffle, along with some news we’ve...

Elephant in the Room: Who Replaces Rollins?

As you know by now, Jimmy Rollins is on his way to Los Angeles. After the dust clears, there will be baseball to play and a short stop position to field in 2015. So just what options do the Phillies have? Unfortunately, with a tight budget and no urgency to win in 2015, not many. The Obvious Candidate Freddy Galvis Galvis, still just 25 years old, started 23 games for the Phillies...

Phillies nab two minor league hurlers in return for Rollins

At long last, it was announced on Thursday what the Phillies would obtain in return for franchise all-time hits leader Jimmy Rollins.  Righty pitcher Zach Eflin and lefty Tom Windle are the players headed east. On Wednesday, news leaked that the Phillies and Dodgers agreed on a deal for the three-time All-Star and 2007 National League most valuable player, Rollins, but it wasn...

Dodgers acquire Jimmy Rollins

The Los Angeles Dodgers didn’t waste much time replacing Hanley Ramirez at shortstop. According to multiple reports, the defending NL West champions have acquired veteran Jimmy Rollins from the Philadelphia Phillies (via CSN Philly). The interesting dynamic here is that Rollins waived his no-trade clause to go to the Dodgers. That has been a point of contention over the past couple...

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...
