Victorino Wants To Re-Sign With Dodgers
Shane Victorino has been with the Dodgers for less than a week, but the soon-to-be-free agent is already looking towards the future.
Victorino has informed his agents that he would like to re-sign with Los Angeles this winter.
The Dodgers acquired Victorino in a trade with the Phillies last week.
"I don't want to just be a two-month or three-month rental," Victorino said. "I want to be here."
He likes playing on the West Coast, where he is closer to his parents in Maui. His wife and two young children can also fly from the family's home in Las Vegas to Los Angeles in less than an hour.
"Don't get me wrong. I still miss Philly and I still miss everything about that place, but now that this chapter has come into play, there are a lot of other things I look at," Victorino said.
"I'd love to stay here for the next however many years and win one here."
