Way To Go, J-Roll

Performance can hurt.Leading the Philadelphia Phillies with four hits (with a little help from baseball's hottest player and middle-infield partner in crime Chase Utley) in their 12-5 victory over the Cincinnati Reds Thursday, Jimmy Rollins reached two huge career milestones: his 1,500th hit and 300th stolen base.

In the second inning with Chutley at the plate, Rollins swiped second base behind a riled-up Ryan Hanigan's back, marking his fifth stolen bag of the season and the 300th of his career.

Then, in the seventh inning, the 2007 NL MVP hit a 1-1 slider from Jared Burton that marked his 1,500th hit, scoring Pedro Feliz.

Looks like this might just be a milestone type of season for J-Roll, as he's just 9 triples away from 100 in his 10-year career. Plus, he's super tough.

Nice. That commercial cracks me up.
I'm glad to see J-Roll finally coming around. He had a good series against the Nats, hopefully he keeps going.

That video is great. Congrats Jimmy! You think he'll make it 3,000 hits in the next decade?
