JIMMY ROLLINS RUMORS

John McCain Has A Rough Time With Foul Ball At Diamondbacks Game (Video)

John McCain has accomplished a lot in his lifetime. But apparently there’s one thing he can’t do. The U.S. Senator was in attendance Tuesday for the Arizona Diamondbacks’ contest against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Chase Field. In the seventh inning, Dodgers shortstop Jimmy Rollins fouled off a pop-up that bounced high off the visitors’ dugout — and right toward McCain’s...

Right-leaning McCain comes up short in foul ball bid

PHOENIX (AP) The ball from the left and John McCain leaned to the right. Not much surprise from the Republican senator from Arizona. An avid Arizona Diamondbacks fan, McCain was taking in a game against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday night when a foul ball flew in his direction. The foul by Dodgers shortstop Jimmy Rollins landed in the seats, took a big bounce and caromed into...

Jimmy Rollins’ bad luck may not explain all his struggles at the plate

“Slow start” seems to undersell just how much Jimmy Rollins has underachieved for almost the first two months of 2015, and that’s only exacerbated by the fact that the rest of the Dodgers offense is achieving what not even the biggest homer could’ve imagined. Rollins will obviously be better than his current .172/.255/.295/.551 line (well, it is already now), if for no other...

Jimmy Rollins: Philadelphia ‘not conducive for a superstar’

There was once a time when Jimmy Rollins was a fan favorite in Philadelphia. The 2007 NL MVP won four Gold Glove Awards, made three NL All-Star teams and helped his team capture a World Series title in 2008. Then, the Phillies went down the tubes and Rollins went with them. Now that he has...Read More

Projecting the Los Angeles Dodgers’ starting lineup

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...

The Mets tried to trade for Jimmy Rollins

WATCH: Umpire Laz Diaz salsas with Phillie Phanatic

Whether it’s driving a four-wheeler around the ballpark or shooting a hot dog gun at a pig mascot, Phillie Phanatic has been known to pump up crowds with his antics. And he can dance like a pro—other mascots dare not challenge him. But umpire Laz Diaz had no problem engaging in a dance-off with the team’s mascot during Wednesday night’s Astros-Phillies game. And he showcased...
