Fill with Delight, for it's Barry Enright

Barry Enright might very well be the nicest guy on the planet, but professionally he's bad.  Yet, he's Amaro's latest minor league depth signing.  Over parts of four seasons with the Angels and Diamondbacks, he owns a 7-13 record, in 31 games, 26 of them starts, pitching 148.2 innings with a 5.57 ERA and 1.47 WHIP.  His minor league numbers are underwhelming too, a 4.67 ERA overall, but more pointedly a 5.62 ERA in Triple-A.  As you can see from the picture to the right, he may have pitched for the aces, but sure as hell wasn't one of them.

Enright is 27 years old, right-handed, and is a former 2nd round pick of the Angels backs in 2007.  He's prone to the long ball as well- 114 in 831 minor league innings and 34 in the Majors.

I'd rather give some dude who schlepped for years in the minors without ever getting the call to The Show a shot than this guy.

Hopefully he never pitches for the Phillies, on the Iron Pigs before getting released in May.
