  1. Amazing: There’s a GIF of Jimmy Rollins telling off the fan

    Pretty good weekend for your Fightin’ Phils over at Citizens Bank Park as they helped alleviate the pain of an opening series sweep at the hands of the Brewers by going out and winning three straight of their own over the Miami Marlins. And while the Marlins may have been pushovers in the past, they’ve…

  2. J-Roll tells fan to ‘shut the F up’ by hitting walkoff homer in extras

    Apr 13, 2014, 8:32 AM EDT

    Jimmy Rollins

    Not sure exactly what the conversation between a heckling fan and Jimmy Rollins was on Saturday night at Citizens Bank Park but the words directed at J-Roll clearly paid dividends as the Phillies got a walkoff homer out of their shortstop in extras. Jimmy was asked about the heckling after the game and tried to…

  3. Jimmy Rollins hits an opening day grand slam for his 200th career home run

    Mar 31, 2014, 3:10 PM EDT

    Rollins.Jimmy.Ryne

    Jimmmmaaaaayyyy! Remember how fun this can be? Jimmy Rollins bashed a grand slam to the seats in right down in Texas in his second at-bat of the season. It just so happened to be the 200th home run of his career. It was the second major milestone Jimmy reached on the day. By making his…

  4. No D-Jax? No J-Roll? No Problem! @FakeWIPCaller weighs in

    JimmyRollins.DeSean.Jackson

    It’s been a week of turmoil for our local teams and a couple of their biggest stars, with DeSean Jackson supposedly about to be traded by the Eagles, and Jimmy Rollins reportedly on the outs with the Phillies, who are asking him to show “leadership.” If you ask me, good riddance to both. First of…

  5. Jimmy Rollins’ biggest problem: walk no longer backs up the talk

    Mar 18, 2014, 1:07 PM EDT

    rollins-spring

    “We are the team to beat.” With those six simple words, Jimmy Rollins gave the Philadelphia Phillies the swagger to seize the NL East in 2007, the first in a run of five straight division titles that included a world championship in ‘08. J-Roll was an undisputed leader inside the clubhouse. Of course, it helped…

  6. Watch Jimmy Rollins talk for nine minutes about Sandberg benching and apparent relationship strain

    Mar 13, 2014, 1:58 PM EDT

    Jimmy.Rollins

    “I don’t know, there’s no fire that needs to be lit though.” That’s how Jimmy Rollins responded when asked if the strange past few days is a way of Ryne Sandberg trying to light a fire under his shortstop. Jimmy has been benched the past few days and there’s no real clear reason as to…

  7. Jayson Stark on Larry Bowa, the ‘Rollins Whisperer’

    Mar 7, 2014, 12:52 PM EDT

    larry.bowa

    Philadelphia fans have been yapping about Jimmy Rollins not legging out ground balls for like a decade. That’s nothing new. But fans are also not legendary Phillies shortstop and former coach Larry Bowa. Bowa is back on the bench this season helping out with Ryne Sandberg’s crew. ESPN’s Jayson Stark caught up with the two…

  8. Old video of Jimmy Rollins with an afro dissing hockey

    Jan 8, 2014, 11:35 AM EDT

    Jimmy.Rollins

    Not entirely sure how I stumbled upon this undated-but-probably-old video this morning, but it’s pretty awesome for two reasons. First, Jimmy Rollins is sporting the afro he used to rock back in his early days with the Phillies. And two, J-Roll is asked about what he loves about Philadelphia and gives an answer that would…

  9. Words used in describing Jonathan Papelbon’s performance last night: flaccid

    Sep 29, 2013, 7:59 AM EDT

    rollins

    Phillies scribe Jim Salisbury set the scene in Atlanta last night: ATLANTA — Jonathan Papelbon looked a little like Roy Halladay as he bobbed and weaved his way through the ninth inning with a flaccid fastball and a bag full of off-speed trickery Saturday night. Paps made the Philadelphia faithful sweat it out but eventually…

  10. Loved Jimmy Rollins Slide at Home with the Frandsen Assist and the Fire

    Sep 3, 2013, 12:02 PM EDT

    Jimmy.Rollins.pumped

    We all know the Phillies are double digit games under five hundred on the season but last night’s contest against the Nationals proved that even in a lost season, there can still be plenty of excitement in any one game. Last night it came in a late 8th inning comeback led by some old familiar…

  11. Remembering the 2000 Philadelphia Phillies (The Last Phils Team Worse Than This One)

    Sep 2, 2013, 2:17 PM EDT

    veteranstadium

    Things are bad for the Phillies this season. You don’t need me to remind you how bad–not after they lost two games to the reeling Mets by scores of 5-0 and 11-3 last week, just as it seemed like they might be building some momentum towards at least some sort of moral winning streak to…

  12. Jimmy Rollins Thought Todd Helton Tagged Him But Todd Helton Disagreed

    Aug 21, 2013, 1:36 AM EDT

    MLB: Colorado Rockies at Philadelphia Phillies

    Jimmy Rollins gave his new manager the impression that Todd Helton tagged him at first base on a close and important call with two on and two outs in the seventh inning on Tuesday night. Todd Helton, after the game, disagreed. From CSN’s game story: Apparently, Helton sold the tag well enough to fool both…

  13. J-Roll Quotable: Despite Country Accent, Charlie Manuel ‘Sharp as a Tack’

    Aug 17, 2013, 1:48 PM EDT

    J-Roll

    “You hear his country accent and you think he’s a little bit slow but he’s sharp as a tack,” Jimmy Rollins said of his former manager on Friday night after Charlie Manuel was let go from his role with the Phillies. Last night’s losing pitcher Cliff Lee also commented on Charlie’s departure, noting it’s part…

  14. Jimmy Rollins On Charlie Manuel Firing: ‘I guess I’ll have a fishing buddy now’

    Jimmy.Rollins

    We’re going to hear from pretty much everyone ever associated with the Charlie Manuel Era over the next few days, sharing their thoughts and reflecting on what a great guy Charlie is and how much he loved the game of baseball. Obviously we plan on sharing some of our favorites. Jimmy Rollins was here in…

  15. Matt Harvey Owns the Phillies

    Jul 22, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    matt-harvey

    How did the Phillies lose two of three in a series to the Mets, you ask? It’s almost not even fair when Matt Harvey gets to pitch one of those games. Harvey has started 30 games in the Major Leagues since his call-up last July, five of those against the Phils already – more than…

  16. Jimmy Rollins Faceplants Across Home Plate… For The Win!

    Jul 14, 2013, 7:30 AM EDT

    jroll-face2

    We’re sorry to inform you, Michael Young, that your Chevrolet Player of the Game honors for 07/13/2013 have been repossessed, and hereby awarded to Jimmy Rollins for his amazing sell-out, head-first slide into home on the game-winning play in the 13th inning of the second half of a LONGGGG double header that ended sometime the…

  17. Jimmy Rollins: “I’m not disappointed at all.”

    Jul 1, 2013, 7:00 AM EDT

    J-Roll-shades

    The Phillies celebrated the final day of June by falling a season-worst 9.5 games back of first place in the NL East after dropping a four-game series 3-1 to the equally woeful Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday. The trade deadline is now just weeks away, which means the team is almost out of time to…

  18. Jimmy Rollins and Michael Young Don’t Even Know the Rules of Baseball

    Jun 19, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    MLB: Cincinnati Reds at Philadelphia Phillies

    The Phillies have Ben Revere on second base and no outs when Michael Young hits a shot to Reds third baseman Todd Frazier, who is playing at normal depth. On the pitch, Revere attempts to steal third and is hit by the batted ball while sliding into the base. Even though Revere was on third…

  19. Video: Here’s Jeremy Roenick Swimming in the Long Rough at Merion

    Roenick.grass2

    No, really. That’s former Flyer Jeremy Roenick swimming in the long rough at Merion, the site of the 2013 U.S. Open next week. It’s a jungle out there. You can watch the moving pictures below in an outtakes clip of Roenick’s memorable moments from a round he played with Villanova’s head basketball coach Jay Wright,…

  20. About Time: Charlie Manuel Shakes Up the Batting Order in Boston

    May 27, 2013, 5:10 PM EDT

    manuel-lineup

    Coming off of their tough series loss in our nation’s capital, the Phillies embark on the first part of a home-and-home of sorts against the Red Sox to close out the holiday weekend. In case you were wondering how the team would respond to its latest letdown, Charlie Manuel finally decided to try something different…

  21. Michael Young Is Posting Some Silly Numbers in 2013

    May 20, 2013, 10:37 AM EDT

    michael young swing

    Let me preface this by admitting up front that I liked the addition of Michael Young to the Phillies during this offseason. The club had a hole at third base that the front office was able to fill temporarily with a seven-time All Star for the low-price of two minor-league relievers, while the Rangers are…

  22. Jimmy Rollins Hits Two-Run Homer, Which Apparently Is Allowed

    May 18, 2013, 11:17 AM EDT

    jimmy-blast

    It’s a well-established rule in baseball, but one Phillies fans may have taken for granted. You have to go back almost a full month to April 21 to find the last time they cleared the fence with runners on base – until Friday. If you click here, there is video proof of Jimmy Rollins almost…

  23. J-Roll Says Potential Trade Deadline Blow Up Is a Reality While Ruben Downplays It

    May 17, 2013, 2:38 PM EDT

    jimmy.rollins

    Things have been quiet on the South Philadelphia front. The Phillies had a rare two off-day week and have mostly been kissing babies (and puppies) the past few days. But while the chatter on the wires has been minimal there was an interesting story from Todd Zolecki over at MLB.com where he caught up with…

  24. Phillies Rally in the Ninth, Falter in Extras, Still Took Two of Three off Giants

    May 8, 2013, 8:42 PM EDT

    Frandsen, Utley

    Bad news: the Phillies lost to the Giants 4-3 in 10 innings on Wednesday. Good news: the Phils showed some fight, and after the dust settled, they still had taken two out of three off of the reigning world champions. Not only was it a positive way to kick off a west coast swing, plus…
