I was thinking of how dead-on the Rock would've been in his promo had he mentioned Scott Rolen instead of Mike Schmidt.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't know of a time when the city turned on Schmidt.

On the other hand, Rolen was their best player and got booed every game during the last year. He had a dispute with a hard-ass manager and the fans all sided with the manager. I can't think of anyone at Rolen's level so cruelly run out of town. I don't even think they got much in trade for Rolen when they unloaded him.

Philadelphia had a love/hate thing with him from the beginning of Schmidt's career to about 1986

Let's see: Philly Thirdbaseman, best player on team, booed every game, cruelly run out of town...turn back the clock to the 1960's and we could be talking about Dick Allen.

I am with that. What happened to the glory days of Rivera and Wetteland? Wasn't that the winning formula? You need the pen, and you need the dazzling setup guy for a solid closer. With the Yanks, it has been a proven formula.
