PHILADELPHIA—The possibility that Jimmy Rollins won't wear red pinstripes again hasn't crossed his mind.

The 2007 NL MVP and three-time All-Star shortstop is headed toward free agency for the first time, and he wants to return to the Philadelphia Phillies. The team wants him back.

But those mutual feelings are no guarantee Rollins will be here next year.

Rollins made it clear Tuesday he wants a five-year deal. He doesn't plan to give the Phillies a hometown discount, either.
