I Got Your World Series Ring Right Here

"Don't steal anything on your way out, kid."

R.I.P. Adam Eaton. Released by the Phillies in the 3rd year of a 3 year $24.5 million deal. The world champs will pay him $8.5 million to not show up to work anymore. Let's face it though, he never actually showed up for work:

  • 2007 - 10-10, 30 Starts, 161 2/3 IP (5 1/3 innings per start avg), 30 HR allowed, 97 K's, 1.63 WHIP, 6.29 ERA - In short, he was the worst regular starter in all of MLB.
  • 2008 - 4-8, 19 Starts, 107 IP, (5 2/3 innings per start avg), 15 HR allowed, 57 K's, 1.64 WHIP, 5.80 ERA

The only thing worse than signing him to that ridiculous deal would have been allowing him to finish it out. I can't believe I'm saying this, but...Good....Work.....Phillies.....!

Oh, gotta run. I have to go swallow some lit fireworks.
