Congrats to Jerome Williams & Family

Recommended Posts

Phillies re-signed RHP Jerome Williams to a one-year, $2.5 million contract.

The deal includes performance-based bonuses that could carry the total value up to $4 million. Williams was a nice surprise down the stretch this year for Philadelphia, posting a 2.83 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 38/17 K/BB ratio in 57 1/3 innings (nine starts).

Remember when the Phillies had that 'best rotation in baseball' (or best rotation money could buy) a few years back -- they spent a pant-load to land top flight rotation guys (Hamel etc.).


Now a few years later they've got Jerome WIlliams who pitched for AL West bottom dwellers Texas and Houston this year as a low cost rotation guy for next year.


I mean, I'm, too, any happy for Jerome Williams (who some may forget pitched for the SF Giants way back when) who worked his tail off when we had him and did pretty much what we asked of him.  You have a lot of guys with significant physical talent and often poor attitudes and then you have a Jerome Williams -- not the best talent but a guy who works his tail off to get the most out of the talent he has and maintains a positive attitude........Good for him, good for his family.


Although, this signing is a pretty good indication where the Phillies are as a franchise right now and for the 2015 season.
