(Video) Top hits of Jimmy Rollins' career as selected by J-Roll himself

For a moment last night, the fact that the Phillies were struggling to muster runs en route to their 37th loss on the season didn’t matter.

In the bottom of the ninth, prior to the Phillies failed rally, Jimmy Rollins led off the inning with a double, that was his 2,234th hit, which tied him with Mike Schmidt as the Phillies’ all-time hits leader.  

While I’m sure that hit, and the hit when Rollins breaks the team’s all-time hit record, Rollins had a chance to put together a video (I’m sure he did all the editing in iMovie) of his favorite hits of his career.

That video kind of makes you remember why Ruben Amaro tried to sap every last ounce out of the 2008 core. The team might not have been full of personalities, but they could rake. While this clip brought back a few of my favorite calls from Harry Kalas, I forgot how great the Franzke and L.A. call of Rollins’ 2009 NLCS game five walk-off was. Special moments from a special player. Now
