Jimmy Rollins, a free agent at the conclusion of this season, told SI's Jon Heyman that he is looking for a five-year deal this winter.
"Five would be great. Five would be the number,'' Rollins told Heyman. "I don't think I want six or seven. You start thinking about 39 (years old). Do I want to play at 39?" Later in the article, the veteran shortstop talked about how he's played for the Phillies his whole career. But that doesn't mean that he'll necessarily end it that way.
"Right now there is no better place to play baseball, especially in the National League,'' Rollins said. "With that being said, I've been here since I am 17. I never thought of going anywhere else. But am I afraid to leave? Not at all. Nothing's permanent. I don't get caught up to the point where it's either this or nothing.''
