I also wouldn't have a problem with signing Reyes.
Given how much he's going to make... you wouldn't have a problem giving huge money to a guy that is going to be 29 next year, and hasn't gotten through a season healthy three consecutive years?
Valdez is barely a ML player... and a significant downgrade from Rollins. He's also older than Rollins.
A 3 year deal for Rollins is probably what everyone should hope for given the fact that he remains a solid starting player for his position, is integral to this team's clubhouse, etc. It shouldn't be huge money, and I would be wary with anything past 3 years, but the criticisms of Rollins are largely driven by lack of knowledge about the lack of depth at SS.
