For the majority of Yankee fans, we dodged a bullet!  Jimmy Rollins is in blue, but not with the Yanks, with the Dodgers instead!  Many are rejoicing in Yankeeland.

A deal has gone down to deliver Jimmy Rollins to the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for 2 minor leaguers.  That report comes from Comcast Sportsnet's Jim Salisbury:

"The Jimmy Rollins era is over in Philadelphia.

A source has told, the Phillies on Wednesday traded Rollins, their all-time hits leader, to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Signs point to the Dodgers' sending a pair of minor league pitchers to the Phillies in return for the 15-year veteran shortstop."

The move was essentially done to replace Hanley Ramirez at shortstop.  You gotta wonder if it will improve the Dodgers, or just be a holding place until they find someone younger and better, but whatever it is... the deal's done.

What does this mean? Well again, if you're a Yankee fan, you are probably relieved.  The report on Rollins personally is that he's a nasty teammate and not a good guy. Athletic? Sure, but older these days and he's slowed down considerably. I hate to sound rotten,  I'm just telling you what I've read, but anything close to that means one thing to me as a Yankee fan... not in my clubhouse.
