Jimmy Rollins: Douche bag, or mega douche bag?
Phillies SS Jimmy Rollins apparently wasn't content to put his foot in his mouth just once regarding the rest of the NL East. On Tuesday, Rollins decided to sound off again (courtesy of Metsblog)
We're the team to beat. I can't put it any other way...Look at our team and what we're bringing. Look at the improvements we've made. You look at the rest of the division...The Mets had a chance last year to go to the World Series. They made it to the playoffs. They won the division. Congratulations, but last year is over. They can take that any way they want, but I'm just stating a fact.
Well Jimmy, allow me to begin by stating a fact as well; you need to stop smoking so much crack. Is the Mets' rotation as iron clad as I want it to be? No. But last I checked, the Mets are still the team to beat, until you can actually (GASP!) PROVE OTHERWISE ON THE FIELD. But until then, please, continue making yourself look like a fool. It will make watching the Phillies inevitable failure to make the playoffs that much sweeter.
