Jingle Bells- Phillies Remix

Through the competition we mow
Backs of the rotation horses we slay
O'er the NL East we go
Laughing all the way
Dreams of World Series ring
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to laugh and sing
A slaying song tonight

Oh, Phillies go, Phillies go
Phillies go all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
Hamels, Lee, and Halladay
Phillies go, Phillies go
Phillies go all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
Hamels, Lee, and Halladay

A month or two ago
I thought we'd take a ride
And soon St. Louis Cardinals
Were seated by our side
The playoffs were ours we thunk
But misfortune seemed our lot
Bats fell into a funk and stunk
And then we got upsot

Oh shit, Cardinals go, Cardinals go
Cardinals went all the way
Oh, what hell it was to watch
On a big screen TV
Oh shit, Cardinals go, Cardinals go
Cardinals went all the way
At least they lost Pujols
Now I laugh at their tragedy.

From David Murphy.

But in reality, it comes down to Rollins and the Phillies. Rafael Furcall just singed a two-year, $14 million deal with the Cardinals. That's a pretty significant chunk of change for a guy who has barely been on the field the last couple seasons.

To me, an at-market deal for Rollins would be 4 years, $36 million with a club option and reasonable buyout. There were some rumblings that Rollins could get $13 mil a year. To me, that's a huge overpay, just based on the market rate for short stops. Now that there does not appear to be much of a market for Rollins, you would think a four-year, $40 million deal would easily get it done. If Phils really don't want to go beyond three years, I think a 3 year, 30 million deal with a club option that has a big buyout and vests on certain incentives would make sense.

This is what I have been saying. Jimmy feels that he was under paid for his last contract. With the current economy there are no teams who are going to bite on 5 years.

There should be a 3 year offer with a 4th year option. He is worth 8 million per because of his constant DL issues during the last 2 years.

Give him 10 mil for 3, and a 4th year option to reward him for past Franchise Excellence. If he does not think that is a top notch deal and not able to run out ground balls for 30-40 million dollars then let him go.

Here's my thing I agree with the contract thing with JRoll but the reality is and I know it's my heart talking and not my head...I can't imagine this team without Jimmy...Hell I don't want to lost the one guy that consistently defends us when we are the bad fans!
