For weeks, David Wright and Jimmy Rollins were teammates. They were partners on the left side of the Team USA infield. They worked together, ate together and showered together. But the WBC is over. The détente has expired. According to Adam Rubin, Wright’s parting words to Rollins as they rejoined their teams were, “It’s on again.” Obviously, he’s hired Michael Bay to write all of his copy. I, for one, support this 100%.
The Mets and Phillies are just a couple of weeks away from renewing their rivalry. Sure, the Marlins and Braves think that they can contend in the NL East and we think that’s adorable. And the Nationals? Didn’t they move back to Montreal to begin touring as the opponent of the Harlem Globetrotters? It’s the Mets and the Phillies. It’s David Wright and Jimmy Rollins. There’s a new cold war and we’re at DEFCON 1.
The Wright Stache is thrilled that David has thrown down the gauntlet and is already posturing. But David, if you’re going to sound like an action movie star, don’t you think that you should start looking like one?
