Well, keeping it all together for 5 years would be a pipe dream at best. Howard has maybe 5 years of prime left, and who knows what kind of deal the Phils will have to swallow with him? Burrell has 1 or 2 years left as a productive player. Victorino is probably staying 5 years. Rollins is about 32 and is starting his decline. He has 2 or 3 years left on his contract, and who knows how much he'll command at that time? Myers is a FA after 2009. Hamels needs a new deal. Jason Donald is on the way behind Rollins, and Cardenas is a future Utley clone at 2B. There are no legit 3B prospects out there right now. However, Savery, Carpenter, Outman, and Carrasco should be up within the next 2 years.
No announcement yet.
