T-20. Phillies: 6/4/96 (Jimmy Rollins) Just … Jimmy Rollins. That’s it.

And the Phillies’ second-longest line begins and ends with Chase Utley, whom they drafted in 2000. For years, the Phillies have been unwilling to envision a future without their veterans; now, they’ve also managed to erase from their roster any record that a Rollins-free era ever existed.
