It was the final day of spring training in Florida when Charlie Manuel officially anointed Jimmy Rollins his de facto No. 3 hitter. The shortstop had a new contract and a baby on the way, and Manuel predicted big things from the more mature Rollins. "He's at a point right now where he feels real good, he's been married a couple years and he's going to have a new addition to his family," Manuel said. "I think that's really helped him. I think he's got it together. And when he's got it together, that's when he's flamboyant, that's when he's electrifying, when he's interested."
