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.
