10. Jim Thome (2012)   One-year $1.25 million

Thome was signed by the Phils to bring some veteran leadership and to bring some fans back to the stadium.  Well past his prime, Thome hit 5 homers and drove in 15 runs while mainly playing as a pinch hitter.  He was eventually traded to Baltimore for two minor leaguers.  The future Hall of Famer makes this list solely on the fact that he did exactly what he was supposed to do for the rebuilding Phils.
