The Phillies, currently at .500, about to start their stretch run after failing to make the playoffs last year, are a bit concerned.

Not about this season. They're just a center fielder, better defender at third, several less injuries, and an entire bullpen away from contending hard. No, they're more concerned with five seasons from the past, when they won the division for half a decade in a row.

Here we are, a year and change removed from the last time they did it, and this was their trivia question/fan forgetfulness survey from this morning.

Which is a question that, of course, brings up a second question: Who the hell is Jimmy Rollins?
