Jimmy Rollins is likely still headed for the disabled list with a strained right calf, but the Phillies decided to delay any decision on their shortstop's status for at least one day. After suffering the injury while running wind sprints just before the start of the home opener Monday afternoon at Citizens Bank Park, Rollins went to Jefferson Hospital's Rothman Institute on Tuesday afternoon for a magnetic resonance imaging examination that confirmed...

They are minus injured all-stars Chase Utley and Aaron Rowand. Their rotation includes a castoff who has been with four organizations this season and who fell into a three-run hole last night. None of that matters to the surging Phillies. Erupting for a season-high eight runs in the fifth inning, the Phils defeated the hapless Pittsburgh Pirates, 10-5, before 45,149 fans at steamy Citizens Bank Park. "It's like we've been doing all year," shortstop Jimmy Rollins said after collecting three hits and drilling his career-high 13th triple.

Hoping they weren't marking a goodbye to Citizens Bank Park, the Phillies nonetheless gave their fans a memorable 3 1/2-hour home finale to what turned out to be a wild regular season. Unfortunately for the Phillies, it became a little too wild. Three walks issued by relievers Rick White and Matt Smith set up a three-run Houston seventh inning that was capped by an infield single by pinch-hitter Mike Lamb that clinched a 5-4 Astros victory last night. The loss dropped the Phillies back into a tie for the wild-card lead with the idle Los Angeles Dodgers.

Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins is making the transition from young phenomenon to seasoned veteran. Once the symbol of the Phils' promising youth movement, Rollins, 26, will enter his fifth season as the team's starting shortstop. Rollins had a breakout season in 2004, batting .289 with 119 runs and 73 RBIs, all career highs. But this year, he wants to help the Phillies in another way. With his leadership. "I don't know if they need to be led, or are ready to be led, but I'm ready to be that inspiration," Rollins said.

SAN FRANCISCO - Jimmy Rollins grew up just across the bay, a bridge and a world away from the glitz of San Francisco. That doesn't mean, however, that the Phillies shortstop is coming home for the second act of the National League Championship Series. Rollins may be from here, but he's a Philadelphia guy now. As much as any of our adopted athletic heroes, Rollins belongs to the place where he plays rather than the place where he was born. Thanks to these Phillies, an entire region believes its beloved baseball team can step out on the field and win and win and win. With one championship delivered, one just missed and another in their sights, these Phillies have transformed the way a city thinks of its baseball franchise and just maybe of itself.

Last off-season, the Phillies exercised their $8.5 million club option on Jimmy Rollins for the 2011 season. They did it on good faith, knowing they wanted their shortstop and one of the faces of the franchise back for another season even a year in advance. There will be no such assurances this time around. When asked if the team will begin negotiating on a possible contract extension for Rollins before next season, Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. made it clear that's not in his plans.

A HIGH FASTBALL, a hard swing, and a chorus of boos that began as the popup descended into a Dodger infielder's glove. Thus arrived the unsatisfying end of another Jimmy Rollins plate appearance. This one played out Monday night in the bottom of the third inning, a half-frame that produced an RBI single from eight-hole hitter Freddy Galvis and a two-run home run by two-hole hitter Placido Polanco, but nothing from the veteran leadoff hitter who bats in between. The timing of the sequence was impeccable.

Every baseball season has its landmark moments. Opening day, the All-Star Game, and the trade deadline are all part of the annual cycle. And if you follow the Phillies, there is always that point in every season when you wonder why in the name of Pete Rose is Jimmy Rollins still batting leadoff. It arrives at different times for different people, but almost everyone at some point questions manager Charlie Manuel's logic for sticking with Rollins at the top spot in the lineup.

It looks like a good plan. Add David Bell, Jim Thome and Kevin Millwood to Pat Burrell, Bobby Abreu and Randy Wolf and you'd think the sum of those parts would be enough to make the Phillies a contender in 2003. What could possibly go wrong for a team that invested so much time and money into getting better during the off-season? Take a look up the middle. That's a vital part of any baseball team's success or failure, and it's possible it could be a strength for the Phillies this season.

The Phillies' offense had become stale and needed a kick-start. So Charlie Manuel started at the top. He batted Shane Victorino first and Jimmy Rollins sixth yesterday in a 5-3 victory over the New York Mets at Shea Stadium. It marked the first time that Rollins had not hit leadoff since June 3, but the move was expected to be temporary with Aaron Rowand ready to return to the lineup tomorrow. Victorino was 1 for 4; Rollins was 0 for 4. "The order was fine," Rollins said.
