David Hernandez is a Lucky S.O.B.

David Hernandez is one lucky son of a bitch. He makes millions, yet is bad at his job. He was a free agent and somehow secured a guaranteed deal worth nearly $4M! He hasn't been good since 2012, missed all of 2014, and has posted an ERA of 4.41 and WHIP of 1.28 over 96 innings in the last two years he's pitched (2013 & 2015).  That's worthy of a minor league contract, not a guaranteed pact of $3.9M. Signing Hernandez was a mistake by Klentak.  Let's hope he's not allowed to blow too many games. Many relief pitchers with better stats than Hernandez had to settle for being nothing more than non-roster invitees in hopes of being added to the 40-man roster for 2016. Let's take a look at some of those guys.

Relief Pitchers Signed to Minor League Deals:
Cumulative stats over past 2 seasons pitched
*Fernando Abad - 2.74/1.17 , 105 IP
*Burke Badenhop - 3.09/1.31, 137 IP
*Matt Belisle - 4.12/1.44, 98.1 IP
*Blaine Boyer - 2.91/1.17, 105.1 IP
*Joba Chamberlain - 3.97/1.41, 90.2 IP
*Neal Cotts - 3.88/1.30, 130 IP
*Brandon Gomes - 4.06/1.17, 93 IP
*Joel Peralta - 4.38/1.20, 92.1 IP
*Cesar Ramos - 3.33/1.35, 135 IP
*Carlos Torres - 3.67/1.33, 154.2
*Alex Torres - 3.26/1.48, 88.1 IP

Opening Day Thoughts:
*Ryan Howard looked absolutely pathetic, at both the plate and in the field.

*Carlos Ruiz started for sentimental reasons according to Mackanin. That's bullshit, you play the best player (aka - Cameron Rupp).

*Speaking of mistakes by Mackanin, pulling Hellickson after only 6 innings and 79 pitches was the wrong move. Going to the bullpen before necessary is moronic with the crapfest the Phillies have in relief this season.

*Maikel Franco was trying to kill the baseball. He didn't. Don't press, just swing normally.

David Hernandez sucks, doesnt anyone else hate the fact charlie morton has a rotation spot over adam morgan?

I hate it! Charlie Morton should have never been traded for. Both Morgan and Oberholtzer are younger with more upside and cheaper.

Playing for another draft pick over trying to win now sucks
