Bulletin board fodder out of Clearwater, with Philadelphia shortstop Jimmy Rollins saying the Phillies are the team to beat in the NL East?
What else is he going to say? “We’re going to lose again this year.’’
The Mets weren’t biting, saying pretty much the same.
Billy Wagner did say: “Our motivation isn’t to beat the Phillies. Our motivation is to win the World Series.’’
