Today, Jimmy Rollins, Shane Victorino, and Ruben Amaro Jr. all spoke to the media.

It was an upbeat atmosphere and if you are a fan of Rollins returning to Philadelphia, you have to be pleased with some of the things he said. Plenty more after the jump, including highlights of the press conference.

Rollins was asked how he values his situation with the Phillies. “Well obviously winning is always number one." He was also asked about himself playing in another uniform. “I haven’t thought about putting on any other colors."

He also said being a leader was very important to him. If all of that is true, it seems likely that Rollins will be back, but as we all know, it is a business.

How much is Amaro willing to spend on a shortstop who is more of a defensive asset at this point? It is interesting, but diving into what the Phils' GM said, it seems that they are concerned with his offensive production, as they should be.

“It’s hard to argue that he still has the offensive ability to do those things, partly because of his health. But there is no doubt in my mind he is still one of the elite short stops in the game, defensively. That is probably the most important element Jimmy brings, that along with his personality.”

Check out the highlights below.

 

 

It should be an interesting offseason. BIG decisions have to be made.
