Rollins: It was 'tame and civilized' in NY

NEW YORK -- First he said Phillies in 5.

Now Jimmy Rollins is taking shots at the World Series atmosphere at Yankee Stadium.

Asked after the Yankees' 3-1 Game 2 win if this feels more like a World Series than last year did, Rollins responded, "When we get to Philly, it will."

Rollins said he expected more out of the Yankee fans.

"Our ballpark is so loud and rowdy, and I was really expecting some of that here," he said. "But it was tame and civilized, actually. You only heard one big cheer, on the home runs."

After Rollins' pre-Series prediction, you would have thought he'd have heard some New York venom. Instead, the fans seemed focused on Pedro Martinez, and even those "Who's your daddy?" chants sounded a little subdued.

Rollins: It was 'tame and civilized' in NY

1 conference championship in 25 years.  That's pretty good.  And for your average of 40 wins per season during the past 3 years, your Caps have won one less series than the Flyers have, including that painful Game 7 OT loss to the Flyers in 2008 at the "phone booth."

Philly isn't the cleanest city in the country, but some areas of Chicago could use a little soap and water too.  And your smiley face is realllly cute.  Did your girlfriend show you how to do that?

For one thing NY hasn't been in the world series since 2003. NY had been accustomed to being in the middle of everything since 1995. I think Rollins bit off a bit more than he should have with his comments though it may have been his way of playing head games with NY. Wrong move if that is so. I felt this would be a 6 game series from the beginning. Still do. Even if CC does win tonight, I don't see NY sweeping Philly in Philly. Would be great, but don't see it. Also remember the Atlanta Braves were the defending champs in 1996 when who else beat them but the Yankees. 

I think both ball parks are rowdy so long as the teams are doing well. If CC and the Yankees win tonight and AJ can match Cliff Lee tomorrow night maybe, just maybe we will see a shocker.
