On Second Thought....

So far, not so good. Jimmy Rollins was placed on the DL today and is likely to be out for a considerable amount of time. Some reports have him out three to six weeks at least.

If you believe Jimmy is the spark plug of this team, and this observer does, the news could not be worse. On second thought, it could be given the Phillies don't have an adequate replacement either. Juan Castro was brought in to spell Jimmy or Chase Utley once in a great while but the Phils never saw him as an every day player.

It's too bad Jimmy went down at all but especially given his hot start. Heck, J Roll was even taking walks this season!

It's likely Shane Victorino will replace Jimmy at the top of the order with Castro sliding into either the seventh or eighth spot.

With their torrid start and record breaking offense, they might not even miss J-Ro. But then again, it is the Nats and Astros. Time will tell as they face better competition.
