The winter meetings have concluded.
A number of big-name free agents have signed contracts.
Openings for shortstops have dwindled.
And yet, Jimmy Rollins remains out there on the free-agent market.
Most observers of the contract drama that has unfolded between Rollins and the Phillies believe it will be resolved with Rollins agreeing to a deal this week.
Phils general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. hopes that is true.
"We're still working on it," he said Monday morning. "We're hoping to have a resolution soon."
Amaro continues to negotiate with Rollins' agent, Dan Lozano.
"We talked over the weekend," he said. "We hope to talk again today."
In driver's seat, Amaro patient on Rollins
