This is an ominous — or exciting, depending on your point of view — tweet:
In course of Rollins conversations, Dodgers and Phillies also discussed Chase Utley, according to source. Now Dodgers have traded their 2B.

That they have. Now, they still may make a Justin Turner and . . . someone, their platoon at second base.
But if they had a Rollins-Utley middle infield I think the collective Phillies Nation would plotz. Especially if they won something with them. Hell, at this point I want the Dodgers to trade for the entire Phillies roster with the exception of Ryan Howard and win the World Series. Mostly so I can see if Phillies fans would still defend Ryan Howard to me. I bet some would.
