Phillies Re-Sign JC Romero

Sunday, November 11, 2007 ·

The Phillies re-signed left-handed reliever JC Romero to a 3 year, $12 million contract.

The Phillies hold a club option for a fourth year that could bring the total value of the contract to $16.75 million. That’s not too bad considering that in 51 games with the Phillies, Romero posted a 1.24 ERA and held opponents to a .130 batting average. During that stretch, lefties went 5-for-40 (.125) against Romero.
Considering JC Romero was only a good pitcher for about a month and a half in his career, I am not sure what to think of this deal. I praise the Phillies for what they're trying to do, and I understand it is really hard to not overspend anymore, but I would have preferred the deal to be only a 2 year deal with an option for 3.

A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
