Jimmy Rollins Broken Ankle...False?

Thursday, April 24, 2008 ·

Jimmy Rollins is scheduled to take batting practice today in Clearwater today. He is eligible to come of the DL on May 5. Also, Kris Benson pitched to hitters yesterday and will throw an extended spring-training game on Saturday.[Philadelpha Inquirer]

This is good news for the Phllies, whom by no means can continue to ride the bats of Pat Burrell and Chase Utley all year. They really need someone else to step up. Greg Dobbs and Jayson Werth have provided some power, but all fingers are pointing toward the Jolly Man, number 6.

Speaking of Howard, he was given the day off today/benched. The time off helped him out last year and hopefully it does the same this year. He is currently on pace for 236 strike-outs. Jamie Moyer is on the mound today for the Phils.

A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
