Quotable: J-Roll’s Playboy World Series Prediction

May 8, 2009, 11:57 AM EDT

Jimmy Rollins is the Phillies VP of Predictions, and he's got another one (at least) in the upcoming issue of Playboy. Per Michael Klein, J-Roll is pretty confident the Phils will be back in the World Series, and he has an idea of which team they might face:

"The Fall Classic? I see our boys vs. the Yankees. They spent all that
money. They’ve got to be there. We’ve got a title to defend, so we’re
going to be there.”

Likelihood this quote came before the Yankees got off to a sub-.500 month with poor starting pitching and hitting: Strong. (Accompanying photos of he and his fiancee were taken in the winter.) But who knows… Either way, I hope and assume that Jimmy is currently more focused on making good on his ".400 month of May" prediction. One thing at a time.
