Phillies Ink Romero To 3-year Extension

"The Philadelphia Phillies have re-signed left-handed reliever J.C. Romero to a 3-year contract worth $12M. Romero had a 1.24 ERA through 36.1 innings, quite good numbers especially for Philadelphia’s late September run which eventually gave them a playoff berth.

Seems like the deal is a little too hearty as the 31-year old Romero had a horrible 2006, forfeiting a 6.70 ERA for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Yes, he did have a good half season for Philadelphia, but he was only a decent reliever for Boston to open up the season. I predicted awhile ago that J.C. would get a 2-year deal worth $6M, but making the deal one year longer and paying an extra million per year is pushing the envelop quite a bit." (
