8 Players Remain In Arbitration Pool

Eight players remain arbitration eligible for the Phillies. They are:

Ryan Howard, Cole Hamels, Jayson Werth, Ryan Madson, Shane Victorino, Greg Dobbs, Chad Durbin, Joe Blanton.

Of the eight, who would you make your top priority for a long-term contract?

A lot of fuss has been made over handing Hamels a long-term deal, and I still hope the Phils go at it hard to secure Hamels for the next five to seven years. I wouldn’t mind seeing a long-term deal for Victorino, either.

And of the eight, to whom would you outright not offer a long-term contract?

I still think it’s best to let Ryan Howard go year-by-year until he’s finished arbitration. Sure, he’s an impsoing presence in the lineup and would look great as a Phillie for the remainder of his career, but how secure is that career? That’s the question that leads me to my answer.
