Tuesday December 6th, 2011

A meeting between the Philadelphia Phillies and the agent of their longtime shortstop, Jimmy Rollins, “did not go all that well,” a source has told CSN Philadelphia.

Multiple sources told CSN Philadelphia that Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. met with Rollins’ agent, Dan Lozano, late Sunday night, but two sides did not come close to an agreement.  Rollins is reportedly insistent on receiving a five-year contract, however the Phillies are reportedly not willing to commit to a long-term deal.
