NJ and you Mut's fans are worried. :wink:

Pitcher Adam Eaton and the Philadelphia Phillies finalized a $24.5 million, three-year contract on Thursday.
A first-round pick by the Phillies in 1996, Eaton is 54-45 with a 4.40 ERA in seven major league seasons. He has been on the disabled list six times in his career, but the Phillies are banking on the right-hander to fill out their rotation.
Eaton, who turned 29 on Thanksgiving, was 7-4 with a 5.12 ERA in 13 starts in his only season with Texas, making $4.65 million. He won 11 games in consecutive seasons with San Diego before he was traded to the Rangers last December.
Eaton solidifies a promising rotation that includes Brett Myers (12-7, 3.91 ERA), Cole Hamels (9-8, 4.08), Jon Lieber (9-11, 4.93) and Jamie Moyer (11-14, 4.30 with the Phillies and Seattle).

Adam Eaton, huh? Wow.

You mean the same guy that's posted a career 93 ERA+, (meaning he's 7 WORSE than a league average pitcher) who can't stay healthy, who posted an ERA above 5 last year and who is going to take up 8 million bucks on the Phillies' payroll for each of the next three seasons? That Adam Eaton?

This is a fine example of a good, young rotation...the good pitchers aren't young, and the young pitchers aren't good. (That's a cheap shot; I obviously like Cole Hamels a lot, as does everyone else.)

I like Florida's pitching a lot. I'd swap the Mets' starting rotation for the Marlins' in a New York minute.

Hey, you know what, Joel Sherman just read this post and reported that as a legit rumor! :D

So true.

And Adam Eaton does not scare me at all. He's an extreme fly ball pitcher (.84 GB/FB), which means he's going to get eaten alive (pun not intended originally, but I'm sticking with it) in CBP.

Nothing like bringing in a fly ball pitcher to a park where pop up's end up in the 10 row.

I'll take having Anibal Sanchez as my fourth starter.

Watched ESPN yesterday, and they rated the signing of Adam Eaton by the Phillies the worse free agent signing of the offseason. :lol:
