The Yankees continue to search for Derek Jeter's replacement at shortstop and according to an ESPN report, they tried to get Jimmy Rollins.
The Philadelphia Phillies currently sit in last place in the NL East despite having the highest payroll in the division.
With tension brewing between Jimmy Rollins and Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg, the possibility of the veteran leaving in a trade has been speculated.
Though Jimmy Rollins has been a mainstay for the Phillies at shortstop - holding the starting job for 13 consecutive seasons - new managers sometimes like to shake it up.
New baseball seasons usually bring new ideas, just look at Matt Williams and the Nationals using inspirational quotes and cargo vans to transport players from field to field.
