Jimmy Rollins is my guy. Love him. He has been pretty good in the booth tonight, too, during what’s been just a miserable baseball game, but I’m guessing he would like to have at least one call back.
With the Phillies trying to stay afloat down 3-1 in the seventh inning, reliever Juan Nicasio entered the game with the bases loaded and immediately plunked Pete Alonso with his first pitch to force in a run. Understandably, Rollins, a former player, reacted as he would had he been standing on the field:

Barring a drastic change of events, Rollins’ word choice seems appropriate, as the Phillies appear headed for their fourth loss in five games on what has quickly become an ugly road trip.
