Jeff Freier, Hot Stove New York – I haven’t been keeping a close eye on the Rollins situation, but it has to be Rollins, right? He has a track record of success and led the team to a division title last year. Performance can overcome one insult to the fans. If he goes on a tear and the Phillies win again the fans will forget all about it. Aaron Heilman’s been the Shea whipping boy for years now. Even if he throws 15 consecutive shutout innings, it’s hard to forget about all the meltdowns and blown games. Sometimes just the look on his face and his slumped shoulders incite the Shea crowd to want to go after him like they were an angry mob of villagers with torches and pitchforks.

J Platt, Hot Stove Philly – I’d have to say Jimmy Rollins. Rollins made some comments which he took a lot of heat for. Outside of using the word “frontrunner,” I don’t think what he said was entirely terrible, and was sort of blown out of proportion.  It’s just a poor choice of wording. Rollins did hear the boos after the comment, but he was also in a batting slump. Over the past week, Rollins has heated up, and is back in the fans good graces.

Outside of his family (and that might be questionable), no one in Flushing likes Heilman.
