Honored to call JRoll a teammate for the last few years. All time great player, amazing person and teacher. pic.twitter.com/qkkxuOTITF

Well so much for a quiet off-season.
Word is out that the Phillies have traded Jimmy Rollins, who has been a mainstay on this team for the last 15 seasons. Rollins has been with the team as their continuous shortstop for many years before the team got real good and then through arguably one of the best stretches of the Phillies history ever.
Something had to break though with this team, players had to be traded and now news that Rollins is apparently headed to LA and Antonio Bastardo is heading to Pittsburgh.
Could Chase Utley be joining his double-play partner out west? http://t.co/1lU69tJ2EK #WinterMeetings pic.twitter.com/OMQZbkWXfn

Now word is spreading is Utley may be on his way out to Dodgerville? Well, Hollywood Hamels might as well go out there too, and the Phillies might get 62 wins this year? The Rollins deal wasn't announced as official by either club yet as of the time of this posting, so we'll just have to wait for the official announcement.
