Last winter/spring Jimmy Rollins called the Phillies "the team to beat". Unoriginal rip-off artist Carlos Beltran belted back last week with, "To Jimmy Rollins, we are the team to beat". Now J-Roll is a bit miffed because Carlos performed the illegal act of plagiarism and isn't even getting a 15 game suspension from everybody's buddy Bud Selig. Naturally Rollins has a response- "First I will rip out Beltran's heart and eat it for a midnight snack. Then my crew (Phils) will demolish the Mets during the season leaving them at home profusely weeping in October yet again. To put the sprinkles on the cupcake, we'll finish off by winning the World Series and dedicate it to Beltran's inspiring words." Damn Jimmy, didn't have to go all ninja on the poor guy. By the way, is that a roll or a "jimmy" on that poster?
Speaking of inspiration, I aspire to be this guy in 20-odd years. Seriously, he's got the cash flow to lay down on Phillies fantasy camp and look like a total stud in his uniform. Okay, I may have taken a bit of a liberty referring to him as a stud, but let's cut the guy some slack.
