NL East Update: The one where the time is now for Phillies and Jimmy Rollins to move on

What is Jimmy Rollins’ future with the Philadelphia Phillies? The answer may surprise you.

It’s time for Rollins and the Phillies to part ways. The shortstop seems to be regressing in recent years due to injury and he isn’t the prototypical leadoff hitter he once was because of that. Of all the “core” players on the Phillies roster, its Rollins turn to go. Break it off now before things take a turn for the worst.

The ageless wonder in Atlanta, Chipper Jones says he plans on returning to the team next season for his 18th year of service.

In a 2010 game against the Houston Astros, Jones left the game to a torn ACL in his left knee. Who would’ve guessed he had at least two more years left in him? Jones was impressive at the plate this season and I expect the same from him in 2012, but maybe this time his team won’t go out the way they did this year.

Are the New York Mets really considering moving David Wright to left field to make room for Daniel Murphy at third?

The answer is no, they most definitely are not. Wright had a bad year in the field but lets remember he had a back issue which makes even the easiest throws uncomfortable. Also, Wright is a two-time Gold Glove recipient, that has to mean something…(W)right?

Apparently Josh Beckett’s in-game etiquette has been an issue since his days with the Florida Marlins according to former manager Jack McKeon.

Personally, I don’t think the several allegations against the Boston Red Sox are a big deal. People just need a reason to explain their poor play in September. My favorite part of this article is how McKeon went chasing after Beckett and Brad Penny with a bat. That’s classic McKeon, what an old timer.

Somehow, someway, Nyjer Morgan aka Tony Plush has found a home in Milwaukee.

It’s safe to say that all Nationals fans were crying out “Anyone but Nyjer!” after his dramatic series clinching hit in Game 5 of the NLDS against the Arizona Diamondbacks. It pains me to say “Good for Nyjer” for finally finding a place that accepts him but in a weird way it makes me question the sanity of Milwaukee fans. This is the Nyjer we know in Washington.
