Report: Meeting Between Jimmy Rollins And Phillies 'Did Not Go All That Well'

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. Last season in 142 games, the 33-year-old Rollins hit .368/.338/.399 with 16 home runs and 87 runs scored. The former National League Most Valuable Player has a career 162 game average of .272/.329/.432 with 17 home runs and 107 runs scored.
