Jimmy Rollins and the Phillies
The Philadelphia Phillies made an excellent deal with Jimmy Rollins in signing him to a three-year deal worth only 33 million dollars. This is a steal of a deal by the Phillies and is the best deal of the offfseason so far. Rollins is still a very good defensive shortstop. Also, Rollins is essential at the top of the lineup for the Philadelphia Phillies. Ruben Armaro Jr handled these negotiations perfectly. He knew that Rollins would eventually cave in on his demands just like he did. The Phillies have saved some money in this deal with Rollins that they can now spend on signing Cole Hamels to a long-term extension or on signing a corner outfielder like Carlos Beltran or Ryan Ludwick.
