Fleeing Phillies to leave much different team

Ruben Amaro wants to be plain that now since he's made plenty of errors with the make up of the team in the last few years, he's rolling out the 'see you later' spiel to any other long time Phillie on the team

Jimmy Rollins is now gone from the Phillies. He's in the hills of LA with the Dodgers with a much better Dodger team.

You can say what you want about Rollins in terms of his hustling in the last couple of years. He's been admonished for not running every play out, and just generally not giving it his all when he is on the field sometimes. One thing that not a lot of people talk about is his 'team' centric mentality.

Rollins seemed to embrace the team mentality, not just the 'me' mentality.

Cole Hamels was very much the same, he embraces the team theme most of the time. Now, he's thinking about leaving that former World Series winning team to go somewhere else, according to many trade reports from around the league. He's due nearly $100M dollars from the Phils in the next 4 seasons.

Who will be the next long time Phillie to leave the team?
