News starts to trickle out that it’s more than an ankle sprain for Jimmy Rollins. It looks like Rollins has a broken ankle. If only he had wrapped that Ace bandage around his ankle as tight as he braids his hair. If this news turns out to be true, I’d say you have two options: trade him ASAP or put him on your DL for at least a month. I think you’re better off grabbing a shortstop (try Eric Brunlett on for size) and putting J-Roll on your DL. Before you jump off the Tappan-Zee, I had Chase Utley in a very important league last year. I grabbed Iguchi when Utley was hurt and won the league. Was Iguchi as good as Chase? What, are you drinking at 6 o’clock on a Wednesday? No, of course he wasn’t. And Brunlett will not be as good as Rollins, but he should get a handful of stats to ease the pain of the Rollins loss.
BTW, I should specify this was nothing but internet rumor when I wrote it. And for tiers of truth, internet rumor ranks just below the ‘Nam story your crazy uncle keeps telling you.
