Jimmy Rollins- King of Pop

Phillies won in walkoff style, thanks to a bases loaded single in the 9th.  Yippie.

Now onto more important matters like making fun of Jimmy Rollins.  He's the King of Pop...popping up!  Seriously, he hits weak pop-ups to the infield more than any other player in the game (not proven by statistics, just a hunch).  Glad we have a leadoff man that is struggling to get on base even 30% of the time (current OBP- .304).

The Phillies in need to some minor league depth at the higher levels in the area of catching have signed Jake Fox. Some power potential and is versatile. More of a Quad A player.

Since the trade deadline.....
Victorino and Pence are a combined 6 for 39 with 2 runs scored 5 rbi's and zero homers.

Dom Brown and Shierholtz are a combined 10 for 33 2 runs scored, 3 RBI's and 1 homer.

Small sample size but so far so good. They have also combined for quite a few walks.
