You can take the Devil out of the Tampa Bay Rays nickname, but you can’t
take the devilish behavior out of their fans. Jimmy Rollins, who apparently
does not have a Garmin or TomTom in his sleek Audi R8, pulled over to ask a cop
for directions to the Pirates spring training facility in Bradenton, about an
hour south of Tampa. Surely still bitter from the Rays losing the World Series,
the officer opted to direct J-Roll to the Pirates minor league complex in hopes
that the Phillies all-star shortstop’s eventual tardiness would not sit well
with manager Charlie Manuel. Uncle Charlie saw right through these shenanigans
and demanded a full-scale investigation of the Bradenton PD.
No such luck.
Manuel: “I believe him. He’s fine.”

Sticking on the topic of #11, has anyone else seen the Dick’s Sporting Goods
commercial
featuring the former MVP? Hilarious. I just hope this doesn’t
lead to him topping MLB in hit by pitches this season. Rollins has become quite
a marketable icon in the advertising world. If you appear in a “This is
Sportscenter
” spot, you’ve done well.

 

Finally, a note to the baseball gods. Do not let that Yankees third
baseman have a monster season and dominate the headlines. Unfortunately, within
the last 24 hours, he has hit a homer on the diamond while reportedly being chauffeured
by his steroid-providing cousin afterwards. Wait, there’s more. Selena Roberts’
book doesn’t come out until April 14th, but rumors
are now surfacing
that Rodriguez will be connected to more than just performance-enhancing
drugs.

 

Have a phantastic Phillies day!
