PhilaTude’s First Phillies Post

Yes, here at PhilaTude, we are Phillies fans.  It hasn’t always been easy being Phillies fans, but we stuck with them and got rewarded with a World Series Championship in 2008.  In fact, there was a rough period in Phillies world when it was better to watch the Braves on TBS play good baseball than watch the Phillies suffer.

Today’s main point of a Phillies post is to discuss the potential of Jimmy Rollins sliding down in the batting order.  Manager Charlie Manuel hinted at this to help dig Rollins out of his slump.  I’m all for it.  I hope Jimmy is too.  There is no reason he shouldn’t be.  He has played in the majors 9 years, won an MVP award and has a World Series ring.  He has played multiple times in the All-Star game and is the toast of Philadelphia.  Rollins should do whatever his team needs him to do.  I’m not sure how Rollins will react, but my suspicion is that he’ll slide down in the batting order, but he won’t be happy.

If Rollins doesn’t want to move in the line-up, he better figure out quickly how to get out of his slump to help his team.

Oh yeah, the Phillies pitching staff isn’t really helping to win games, either.
