Jimmy Rollins appeared on 97.5 the Fanatic this morning with Harry Mayes and Brian Baldinger, and had this to say when looking at the future:

"Business is buisness, and the numbers are the numbers…there's no such thing as a home-town discount"

Hmm, well, if that's the case, then the Phillies might have to go do business elsewhere.   Would the Phillies be better off overpaying Rollins for a few years, or letting him walk and getting a primariliy-defensive shortstop to play shortstop? 

J.J. Hardy anyone?  Jack Wilson? Rafael Furcal?

Should be interesting.
