Rollins continues plan to marry in Caribbean despite earth trembling

 Jimmy Rollins will not be deterred in his plans to get married this weekend in the Grand Cayman,  despite a 5.8 earthquake shaking the island yesterday. Rollins quickly texted to Phillies spokesman that he was ok, but the danger in this area seems not to have gone away.

   Grand Cayman Islands is just south of Cuba in the Caribbean

         Several Phillies are expected at the wedding, some big names like Ryan Howard, Chase Utley, and Shane Victorino. I suspect the management of the Phillies are very nervous about the event with so much earthquake activity in the Caribbean in the past 10 days. Haiti is not too far away from the Grand Cayman Islands which is the spot of the devastating earthquake that changed Haiti in a blink of a second.

          Rollins will wed longtime girlfriend Johari Smith, who used to be in the Phillies organization. That is how he pair met, and Rollins decided it was time to tie the knot. Which is the plan sometime this weekend in the Grand Cayman.
