Victorino Wants Five-Year Deal From Phils

"Shane Victorino wants to leave Florida in a month ready to have the best season of his career.

He'd also like to leave with a contract extension from the Phillies.

"Why not make it happen now?" the all-star centerfielder said.

Like Cole Hamels, Victorino will be eligible for free agency after the season. He says that the Phillies have had recent discussions with his representatives, but "we're not close" to a deal. He is hoping the gap can be closed so he doesn't have to test the free-agent market next off-season."
