Release This Pitcher

The name of this blog is We Should Be GMs, so playing that role is the name of the game here. As a GM, one should always be evaluating their team and looking to make improvements wherever possible. Today I provide the reader with an exercise in roster management.

I present Exhibit A:
39 G, 36.1 IP, 8.67 ERA, 1.95 WHIP, and 7 HR allowed since All-Star break 2016.

This pitcher is not a prospect. This pitcher is not locked into a multi-year multi-million dollar contract. This pitcher owns a 0.3 WAR over 8 MLB seasons. 

What do you do with Exhibit A?

RELEASE THIS PITCHER!!!
Peace out Jeanmar Gomez. Thanks for half a season of excellence followed by endless frustration.

So glad to see To-Jo connect on that homerun. The offense needs him to start hitting like last season.

Odubel being Odubel...

Flips bat on a fly out in top of the 7th followed by a botched pop up in the bottom of the 7th.

What goes on in his head?

Hoby Milner and Pat Venditte (the switch pitcher) have been great for Lehigh Valley. Release Jeanmar and call-up one of them.

I agree

Phils bullpen struggles are real. Real bad.

The level of shittiness in the Phillies bullpen astounds me.
