-Ryan Howard wants $18 million and the Phils are only willing to offer him $14 million
I guess it is the same story all over again.
-Shane Victorino agreed on a one-year $3.125 million contract.
-Joe Blanton agreed to a one-year $5.475 million contract.
-Jayson Werth, Chad Durbin and Howard are the only guys left that are still arbitration eligible.
But, from what I can tell, the agreements with Victorino, Blanton and other guys accepting contracts so willingly shows that these guys want to stay here and repeat as World Champs. That is a good sign. Now, if Howard was not so money grubbing, it would be a great sign.
Hey Ryan, the economy is in the dumps. You make a lot of money already. You don't even control your money. Your mother organizes it for you. Can you please stop being so greedy? What the Phillies offered you is plenty.
