Jimmy Rollins Agrees to Three-Year Deal

17 Dec

The Phillies waited it out and got what they wanted…. Jimmy Rollins agreed to a three-year, $33 million contract with a vesting option for a fourth season.  It appears as if the fourth year is pretty attainable at $11MM, so it’s basically about how healthy he can remain.

As the market crumbled around him Rollins was left without many choices as his 5-year demand was just too high.  In the end I think he made the right choice, and I’m happy that he’ll be back.  With the caliber of the starters that we have, and the questions with the offense, we need solid defense, and that’s exactly what Jimmy provides.

It would have been difficult for us to see Jimmy in another team’s uniform, and thankfully now we won’t have to.  Here’s hoping that Rollins can be a Phillie for life.
