J-ROLL’S LAST STAND: Jimmy Rollins isn’t thinking about his future, even though he’ll be a free agent after this season. The 2007 NL MVP has spent his entire career in Philadelphia, but likely will test the market.

“It was never really an issue,” Rollins said. “Having the team that we had and being able to come out and perform the way we did, that was first. If you don’t win, all that other stuff kind of goes to the wayside and you deal with it when it comes about.”

The 32-year-old shortstop had his best season since ‘07. He hit .268 with 16 homers, 63 RBIs and stole 30 bases.

It’s hard to imagine the Phillies not re-signing Rollins, a team leader who is the heart and soul of the clubhouse. The team doesn’t have an immediate replacement in the minors, though prospect Freddy Galvis is getting close to making the jump to the majors.

Asked what his legacy in Philadelphia will be, Rollins smiled and said: “It’s pretty solid.”
