    But can you toss them right away. In that case you’d have to toss all the Phils pitching hopefuls. Seems like it starts with who signed these clowns to begin with.

    Pivetta is cheap. Who else is ready?

    You start spending big bucks to upgrade the back half of your rotation, and you wind up with garbage like Adam Eaton.

    When the FO had a chance at some pretty darn good pictures earlier in the season and before the trade deadline and did literally nothing except they went dumpster diving and ignored the obvious to wit, the Bitches and Mutts didn't and improved their ballclubs as a result.

    I wonder how many people will think you’re talking about the Nats’ outfielder in this post....

    Freddy Garcia was an ace compared to Adam Eaton. LOL

    Pivetta is headed to surgery. He's done like the proverbial Thanksgiving turkey.

    Just for fun, lets revisit this one.

    The Phillies sign Andy Ashby as an amateur free agent and in a couple partial seasons in the bigs he is awful. so they leave him unprotected and someone takes him in rule 5. He bounces around and somehow starts pitching well in San Diego.
    As always when this happens, the Phillies feel remorse over letting Ashby get away. So much so, that they trade their No. 1 Draft Pick, Adam Eaton along with 2 other players for Andy Ashby.
    Back in Philadelphia, of course Ashby completely busts to the point where they flip him to the Braves for Bruce Chen after half a season.
    Meanwhile, Adam Eaton, their former No. 1 pick has had some success in San Diego (most pitchers do by the way-it's a great pitchers park).
    So now they are like "we gotta get Eaton back, Lucky for us he is a free agent!"
    15 million dollars and -2.6 WAR later, he is on the Orioles, then out of baseball.

    Classic Phillies......

    Him getting booed at the ring ceremony is a top 5 Philly fan moment.

    Freddy Garcia is a poster child for analytics. But back then the front office saw those 17 wins and got all excited. If you looked at the rest of his numbers the year before in Chicago he was brutal.

    The best thing that came from Freddy Garcia was that he was damaged goods and the Sox had to give us Tad Iguchi for peanuts.
