Mike Gill went over the numbers SS Jimmy Rollins has had in the month of June. The team overall doesn't have a great record, but Rollins is certainly living up to his contract. Gill also went over the schedules for the Phillies, Dodgers and Pirates heading into the All-Star Break. He thinks if the Phillies can cut the Wildcard deficit to 3 games or under, they are in prime position in the final 75 games to sneak in the post season. The Phillies continue their four game series with the Pirates tonight, with Vance Worley on the mound.

Ryan Messick in on and likes the fact that the line is young and has another year of growth under their belt.

Eagles training camp begins with selected rookies/veterans July 22nd.
