“Don’t Waste Your Time, Guys”
According to 94.1 WIP, this is what Jimmy Rollins told reporters after the game when they came to him for comments. Not sure what to make of this, but it doesn’t sound good. Earlier I wrote that it seems like some players have given up. I don’t know if Jimmy falls into this category, but the Phillies are in sorry shape right now, really looking like sellers. After the game there were rumors that Shane Victorino wasn’t happy about batting seventh and did not play. Obviously if that is true, it is very unprofessional and Victorino needs to take a look at his numbers and realize that’s where he SHOULD be batting.
Thankfully, Victorino could be on his way out the door, according to Jon Heyman of CBS sports. With the Phillies as bad as they are, if the Phillies do trade Victorino, it would make sense to call Dom Brown up. He had been playing some center in AAA and was doing better than he was in right field.
