$24 Million

New, 12 comments

There was a time $24 million was a lot of money.  Thanks to Pat Gillick and his free-spending ways (for mediocre-at-best talent), we now know that it's chump change.  After all, here's what $24 million has gotten the Phillies this season:

PLAYER GS IP H BB K ERA K/BB WHIP VORP
Adam Eaton 7 40 47 18 32 7.43 1.78 1.63 -9.9
John Patterson 7 31.1 39 22 15 7.47 0.68 1.96 -7.0
Clay Hensley 6 28.1 42 16 14 7.62 0.88 2.06 -9.4
Tony Armas 6 24.2 40 15 18 8.76 1.20 2.27 -11.1
Mark Redman 5 20.1 34 9 12 10.62 1.33 2.14 -13.3

The chart shows the worst five NL starters with 5 or more starts this season. Is this the only grouping Adam Eaton excels in?
