Jimmie Rollins And Phils Reach Deal

Jimmie Rollins has always been a Phillie and that will not change for the near future. Rollins has reached agreement with Phils on a three-year contract with a vesting option for a fourth year. ollins, 33, is a three-time All-Star, three-time Gold Glove winner and won the National League MVP award in 2007. He is fourth on the Phillies' career list behind Richie Ashburn, Mike Schmidt and Ed Delahanty with 1,866 hits, and ranks among the franchise's top five in games played, plate appearances, runs, total bases, doubles, triples and stolen bases.

Getting Jimmie Rollins back in the fold was very important. He was hurt some last year, but when he is healthy he is one of the best in baseball. The Phillies needed him and in reality he probably did not want to go anywhere else anyways. Getting a three year deal will keep him a Phillie something Phillie fans should be excited about.
