Jimmy Rollins has already agreed to spot Rays’ starter Andy Sonnanstine the first out in tomorrow’s rubber match.

When asked how this should be reflected in the box score Rollins said, “I popped out.”

Rollins then went on to say, “Might as well put me down for an error in the, let’s say 6th inning.  I’m going to throw my glove at a fly ball.”

When asked whether he would further stand Rollins’ insubordination, Charlie Manuel said, “Jimmy’s being honest.  There’s no way he’s getting on base tomorrow.  As long as he get to the game on time and at least jogs when he pops out, my hands are tied.”

Manuel was asked what Rollins would need to do to be moved out of lead off spot.

After thinking long and hard, Charlie said, “Jimmy would  have to literally murder Chase Utley.”

And with no further explanation, Manuel returned to blowing on a jug with the rest of his Country Bears.
