Rollins predicts he'll hit .400 for next month.

Let's make this a running tally:

http://www.philly.com/inquirer/sports/20090428_Phillies_Notes__Rollins_predicts_a__400_month.html

After saying in spring training that he had retired from the prediction business, Jimmy Rollins unretired yesterday afternoon.

Well, sort of.

Mired in an early-season slump that has resulted in his not being in the starting lineup on each of the last two Sundays, Rollins took extra batting practice about four hours before the Phillies beat the Washington Nationals last night.

Afterward, he sat at his locker with a big smile on his face.

"I felt pretty good, ready to rock and roll," the Phils' leadoff man told The Inquirer. "I'm ready to hit .400 for the next month."


Tonight so far:

1-4 (which raises his average)

HAHA someone should extinguish that fire as well as his prediction career. To be honest, no one (except his fantasy owners) care what he thinks he'll produce next month. Mr. Rollins, here is my prediction: You will never put up MVP numbers again and should focus on PRUDUCING more funny commercials ;-) ;-D

Why is he not running? He is worthless without SBs.

In his defense, he can't steal first base.

Also, he does have two CS's to go with that stolen base. So, he's kinda running, just not very well.

Bust. of. the. year.
