“Because I can’t be traded,” the veteran shortstop told MLB.com on Wednesday. “It doesn’t matter. I don’t care which way it is tried to be twisted or said, or if it is exactly how it was said, or even if it was said, I can’t be traded. It doesn’t matter. If I was tradable it may have weight because that means I could be moving soon. But I am not tradable and so it doesn’t matter.”
Pay per head services know that Rollins, who in 1996 was drafted by the Phillies, is able to veto any trade proposals as a 10-and-5 player.
On Sunday, the shortstop, who’s a big favourite with price per head sportsbooks, told CSN Philly that he will not give up his no-trade rights anytime soon, saying that he’d like to surpass Mike Schmidt’s franchise record for hits. Rollins has 2,175 hits, 60 less that Schmidt.
On Tuesday, sources reported that there is a strong feeling within the organization that it would be better for the Phillies to trade Rollins and get a new shortstop, and pay per head services could see how concerned many fans were after they heard about this.
Price per head sportsbooks saw that earlier this month, the player was benched on three consecutive days by Ryne Sandberg, who is serving his first full season as manager. They both talked and Sandberg downplayed the notion of any problems.
MLB.com reported that on Wednesday, Rollins briefly met with general manager Ruben Amaro Jr.
“Absolute silliness,” Amaro told the website. “Jimmy Rollins is our shortstop. One of the ways we’re going to be able to win is with Jimmy being Jimmy.
“We have no intention of moving Jimmy. We need Jimmy to play for us to win. It’s as simple as that.”
When asked if Rollins needed to improve as a leader, Amaro told MLB.com, “I don’t have any issues at all with Jimmy.”

Pay per head services know that Rollins, 35-years-old, is coming off one of his career’s worst seasons – one in which he hit .252 with six home runs, 39 RBIs and 65 runs scored in 600 at-bats, leaving many very unhappy fans, and price per head sportsbooks hope to see a much better performance by the player this season.
