Phillies Ace- Jerome Williams


When Ruben Amaro shoveled Jerome Williams out of the garbage heap of released players without employment, it was out of necessity, not genius.  Well, Amaro is rocking a smug smirk now that Williams has pitched brilliantly through his first 4 starts with the Phillies.  Let's jut hope Amaro doesn't extend him for 3 YR/$30M, because 4 starts is an extremely small sample size.  Adam Eaton even looked good over some 4 start stretches.  However, I applaud Jerome for the work he's done (3-0, 26.2 IP, 2.03 ERA, 1.01 WHIP).  His season ERA still stands at 5.23 thanks to 28 piss poor appearances with the Rangers and Astros earlier this year.

They're letting their draft pick get worse every week. If I go to a Phillies game in the near future, I'm putting a paper bag on my head.

john mayberry jr traded for some guy we'll probably only see for next month and that's it

Mayberry traded to open spot on roster for Franco or someone else to be called up.
Doesn't sound like what's his name will ever been seen in the show

Don't really care Mayberry is gone. Dude they got for him is pointless (makes an error 1 out of 10 plays). Should have taken grass.

It would be fine to bring back Williams next year but to compete for a spot along side Pettibone, Buchanan, and likely another pitcher thrown into the mix. Hamels and highly likely Lee along with possibly Burnett will occupy the top 3 spots in rotation. I don't forsee Burnett passing up on 10 plus million, but he may.

Williams on a minor league deal is fine, but nothing more.

Mayberry traded for something makes sense, since he'll be more expensive than he's worth next year. He was a good 4th outfielder, but they could never use him that way due to injuries. Should have just taken cash or something for him, this Pierre prospect sucks.

Phillies throw no-hitter!
