Jimmy Rollins is someone that knows a lot about playoff baseball. The last time Rollins played a major league game was 2016 and the last time the Phillies were in the playoffs Rollins was manning short. Thats how long it has been. But that streak seems on pace to end this season as the Phillies are in a wild card spot with an easy schedule down the stretch.

Rollins joined the John Kincade Show Friday to talk about the current Phillies team and what he sees/the difference of now as opposed to at the start of the season.

“I like the way they are going about it. They’ve found that killer instinct. They see the finish line.”

In 2007 Rollins won MVP while carrying the Phillies to their first postseason berth since 1993. But the 07 Phillies got swept. Rollins went on to say that losing in 07 helped them win the World Series in 2008, which is why just getting into the playoffs is so important.

“The knowledge of how fast it could end helped us in 2008”
