Jimmy Rollins arrived at Miller Park as some of his teammates were taking extra batting practice Thursday afternoon. Leaning on the batting cage, Charlie Manuel saw Rollins walk in from right field. As Rollins reached the batting cage, the manager motioned for the shortstop to follow him.

Into the principal's office they went.

Manuel chastised Rollins for not running out a ground ball in the sixth inning of Wednesday's 9-2 loss in Miami.

"We have two rules: Hustle and be on time," Manuel said later. "That's all I have to say. This is between Jimmy and me."

Manuel said he thought about benching Rollins for Thursday night's game but decided against it because he believed the meeting was productive.
