J-Roll is Playboy's "Player"



    J-Roll is Playboy's "Player"
    Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins upgraded his uniform for the summer on the pages of Playboy.

    The not so always understated, but never underestimated shortstop juggernaut Jimmy Rollins has landed on the pages of the June 2009 issue of Playboy.

    Before you get ahead of yourself, he's not taking his clothes off (this isn't Playgirl, if that still exists)…actually putting them on.

    J-Roll was chosen as the magazine's "Player." That means the bunnies got to dress him up in the summer's hottest styles.

    As writer Conor Hogan says, they gave Rollins a better summer uniform "that didn't consist of polyester and hideous red pinstripes."

    The piece hits newsstands and the Internet this Friday. Now, when your girlfriend asks, you have a reason for having Playboy lying around.
