What J-Roll told Playboy

The Phils' star shortstop and his fiancee appear in a fashion spread in the June issue, out next Friday. In a quote, he mentions a New York team to beat -- and it's not the Mets.

What J-Roll told Playboy

Phils shortstop Jimmy Rollins and his fiancee, Johari Smith, appear in a fashion spread in the June issue of Playboy, out next Friday.

The couple, who shot the feature over the winter in Florida, model fashions from designers such as Perry Ellis, French Connection and Nautica. 

The mag quotes him thusly about baseball: "The Fall Classic? I see our boys vs. the Yankees. They spent all that money. They’ve got to be there. We’ve got a title to defend, so we’re going to be there.”

I'll have more about Johari Smith and what she is up to in my "INQlings" column in Sunday's Inquirer.
