The Phillies just signed J.C. Romero, making that jokey headline I posted a few days ago some much more accurate than any of us, while laughing hysterically, could have imagined.So he’s a lefty. That’s good.
So we paid $1.1 million for a single go-around with J.C., rather than extending his sentence for $4.5 million.
So he had his highest ERA since 2006 last season.
So we kind of fired him already, hired a replacement, then fired him for being too fat, then beckoned to J.C. again–the main appeal being that he is left-handed and weighs less than 250 pounds.
So he’s ripped himself up a few times muscularly and its cost him some playing time.
So Charlie’s trust in him has cost us in the past.
So he’s punched a guy (HE WAS PROVOKED) and been suspended for PEDs.
So his recent memories have more failures than successes.
