I Just Don't Know...
Jimmy Rollins, a Top 20 shortstop in Major League Baseball history, a possible Hall of Famer, and a Philadelphia Phillies franchise stalwart has been traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers. For what? I just don't know. It's likely Amaro took his typical fleecing and whatever returns to Philly is a package of crap that are about as useful as a fart in a bathtub. I'm sad. I'm mad. I'm disgusted. I hate Ruben Amaro Jr. A tribute to J-Roll is forthcoming, but I need time to marinate on this before posting.
In other news, Antonio Bastard is set to become a Phucco (Phillies + Bucco = Phucco), as he was sent to Pittsburgh for a minor league pitcher named Joely Rodriguez. He's a lefty that pitches to contact (only 5.3 K/9 in 441.1 IP) and hasn't done anything noteworthy aside from a nice 2013 (2.70 ERA over 26 starts). Doubt he ever makes an impart and quite possibly never a MLB debut. Yeah Amaro! Idiot.
