I guess if you were a member of the 2008 Phillies, it's the summer to sell your house. Yesterday, we featured Cole Hamel's absolutely insane 10-bedroom Missouri mega-mansion, and today, it's longtime Phillie and 2007 MLB MVP Jimmy Rollins, who recently put his Swedesboro, NJ estate up for sale.
Rollins, who saw his 17-year career likely come to a close after a failed stint in Spring Training with the San Francisco Giants earlier this season, listed his five-bedroom, 3.5 bath house less than a month ago for $799,000, the same exact price he bought it for.
According to Realtor.com, Rollins moved into the home in 2005, well before he earned the vast majority of the near $100 million he would pull in during his career.

Especially for the price, roughly $9 million less than Hamels' crib, this house is pretty sweet. It sits on 2.58 acres of land and is a total of 5,292 square feet. In addition to the eat-in kitchen and massive walk-in closets, the best part of this house has to be the backyard, which includes a pool with hot tub and a waterfall.
Other features of Rollins' house include a detached three-car garage, a full finished basement, poker room and gym.
Here's the entire listing, complete with photos and information.
