Phillies - Signed Rollins
Philadelphia Phillies - Signed SS Jimmy Rollins to a 5-year contract extension.
This one is worth $40 million and has an $8.5 million option for 2011. This is kind of a head-scratcher - if it had been done in the offseason coming off his breakout season, it would have been more understandable than it is now, after his first 2 months suggests that he’s regressed back to his usual play. Now, Rollins isn’t a bad player; he’s essentially a league-average shortstop and young, so this isn’t likely to cripple the Phillies. But what was the hurry? They’re paying market value for a player they don’t have to sign for another year and a half. I do like this signing better than the Angels signing of Cabrera; though Rollins is also a middling hitter with good, though well overrated defense, he’s also on the right side of 30.
