The good

<squinting> nope.

The bad

If we’re gonna get specific here, it kind of sucks that Hammer wasn’t that good. He had it all - the glasses, the stuff, the name - everything a town like Philadelphia would want in a reliever to become something akin to a cult hero. Once he struggled here, he carried it over to Lehigh Valley and was bad there too.

Other than that, the rest of the guys were just not that good. Of the quintet, there seems to be the most hope for Arano since he has the best OOTP ratings had a modicum of success in the major leagues already, but even still, the latest injury will cloud that optimism.

The future

Salas and Anderson? See ya.

Rios? Buh-bye.

Arano and Hammer? Ah yes.

These are the two to watch for. They’ll both remain in the organization and probably have a real shot at making the bullpen next year. There will be openings to had, so with a strong spring, perhaps can be that last guy to make the staff.

Listen, folks, we’re trying here. I promise, the reviews get better as the players get better. We’re gonna make it. Together.
