Congrats to Jimmy Rollins for collecting his 100th career triple in the 9th inning of Monday's game.
The 32 year old is set to hit free agency this offseason and is reportedly looking to secure a 4-5 year deal worth 8 figures annually ($10M+). Hahahaha, apparently Young James is a part-time comedian too. The oft injured shortstop will likely receive something in the neighborhood of JJ Hardy's 3 yr/$22M deal, and if that's the case I hope he remains with the Phillies. If a bidding war breaks out and the contract gets lengthy and ends up around 4 yr/$40M or more, I hope the Phils thank him for his service and let him walk.

The Phillies have decided to tank the rest of the regular season. Hope all that rest and ambivalence pays off come playoff time. Guess we'll see if they can flip that nonexistent magic switch.
