As expected, Jimmy Rollins became a free agent on Sunday, along with fellow Phillies Ross Gload, Raul Ibanez, Brad Lidge, Ryan Madson, Roy Oswalt, and Brian Schneider. The Phillies are in discussions with Rollins’ agent, but it may be tough to reach an agreement that gives him what he’s looking for:
Yep, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer, he’s not a seeking a five-year contract, but a five-year contact.
I’ve heard of extended wear contacts, but they seem to top out at 30 days, making 5 years seem a bit extreme.
Good luck with that one, Jimmy! 😉
