Jimmy Rollins: The Return

Jimmy, I super duper miss you.

Tonight, Jimmy Rollins returns to Citizens Bank Park for the first time since he was traded last year. And whenever a former player comes back to CBP, our fanbase always runs the risk of embarrassing itself horribly. Let's all join hands right now and say a prayer to your chosen deity that the Phillies fans at the ballpark tonight give Jimmy Rollins what he absolutely deserves: a loud, thunderous, lengthy standing ovation. He's the best shortstop in Phillies history and I miss him every single game.

I mean, Freddy Galvis is fine and everything, but he's not Jimmy Rollins. There is no other.

Today's Lineups

Jimmy Rollins - SS Cesar Hernandez - 2B
Howie Kendrick - 2B Odubel Herrera - CF
