Say Farewell To Jimmy Rollins

By Andrew Porter

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- Jimmy Rollins has given us countless memories over the last 15 years (WOW 15 years!), including an unforgettable World Series Championship in 2008. While he was sometimes criticized for his lack of intensity, looking back, Rollins will be beloved by Philadelphia forever for his vibrant personality, flashy defense, and clutch hitting.

And mostly, because Rollins gave us something Eric Lindros, Allen Iverson, Brian Dawkins, and Donovan McNabb couldn't---a championship.
