Rollins on the NL East: “It still runs through Philly”
Jimmy Rollins is so cute. From CSNPhilly.com, here are the Philly shortstop’s views on the balance of power in the NL East:
Whatever motivates you, Jimmy. But do know that when “the Mets took it from Atlanta” after the Braves’ string of division titles closed in 2005, the Braves finished 3rd, 3rd, 4th, 3rd, 2nd, 2nd and 2nd. The division title still technically ran “through Atlanta” in the sense that, sure, every team that won it had to play road games there, but they were not assumed to be the big dog anymore.
Same with Philly.
