With so many holes to fill, it is hard to believe that Philadelphia decided to put so much of its 2012 payroll into Ryan Howard. Guaranteed WS? Several top prospects? And we haven't even discussed what Cole Hamels, signed for $9.5MM in 2011, is likely to get in 2012 in what will be his final year of arbitration. Let's take a look at what Philadelphia will be spending money on as the 2012 season dawns. Roy Halladay is signed for $20MM. he is a historic slugger and will continue to be a threat in the lineup for years to come.
And if they decide to sign current right fielder Jayson Werth and shortstop Jimmy Rollins– both likely to cost $10MM or more annually and both entering their age-33 seasons in 2012- the entire remaining team will have to be low-cost options fresh from the farm system to make the numbers work.
By Howard Megdal | April 27, 2010 at 8:13am CDT. Ramirez and Gillies are both nice prospects, too, but they’re not what anyone would call an elite prospect. That year he went 5-6 with a 3.20 ERA in a season again split between the Double-A and Triple-A levels. Call me biased, but I think the Yanks situation is pretty good.
I still think Posada will be a DH in 2012 but Montero/Romine is quite the discussion issue. I just don’t see a guy being brought up straight into a DH role.
Brummett was released by the Phillies and signed in mid-October with the Toronto Blue Jays.
They can’t re-sign Werth. Here's a page to find all of the links about the 2012 draft. When you trade someone as valuable as Cliff Lee, you should get more than Aumont/Gillies/Ramirez.
It was by far his best season yet, and it appeared to come to an end with his final appearance on August 31. In other words, the $140MM threshold the Phillies find themselves at right now isn't far from where they expect to be in 2012. Amaro Jr.’s tenure so far has been disappointing. They should have traded Howard after their WS win. his numbers for HR and RBI over the last 4 years are the best in baseball. A 3 year deal still seems ridiculous, though. Brummett was called to join the team, just in case.
I think he makes 10 million next year. I know this is the internet where hyperbole was born, but come on…. Not that big of a deal, really. Brummett’s best was still was not deemed good enough to get a big-league promotion. It seems fair to assume that the money that would have gone to Lee went to Howard instead. Not to mention (though I am) the deal they gave Joe Blanton… Certainly, they had no intention of being at $160MM, which is where Lee plus Howard would have landed them. YEAH! I still think that was the way to go. Is that what you were looking for? Not to mention most of those players have 3 year deals, which hardly classifies 2012 as the end of the Phillies run.
As for AJ, I just hope he stays healthy.
Big trades that take people by suprise happen all the time! Anonymous commenter from Yahoo or ESPN, gladly. Copyright Matthew Veasey and Phillies Bell, 2004-2020, Not affiliated with Major League Baseball or the Philadelphia Phillies. Joe Blanton is signed for $10.5MM, Shane Victorino for $9.5MM, Placido Polanco for $6.4MM, Carlos Ruiz for $3.7MM, and almost certainly, Brad Lidge will be given a $1.5MM buyout. 35mm left to spend for 2012 for a SS, 5th starter, two pen arms and some various bench guys–and again, internal guys like Aumont (5th SP or late inning guy), Mayberry (4th/5th OF) or Gillies (4th/5th OF) are candidates for some of these spots–is far from an OH NOOOOEZ situation, especially when you still have the vast majority of the core of the current NL favorite, and the only really older (35+) guys are Halladay and Polanco, Now if we want to talk about 2013 and onwards, it probably gets a little dicier. how many raw sluggers of howards ability are left anymore in this post-juice era?

With some bad luck, this is the sort of team that could get much worse very quickly. yes i do and one of the best hitting 2nd basemen as well which is why there was a common thought that he might get moved to 1st eventually to extend his career. Cervelli is good as well. By Howard Megdal | April 27, 2010 at 8:13am CDT. Ruiz. That's $87MM going to seven players to play and one player to not play.

I think I can speak for the rest of the NL East teams by giving a big thank you to Ruben Amaro Jr. His bat is way too good) then the Yankees have other in house options at backstop, such as Austin Romine who is excellent behind the plate and could have a nice bat to go along with his defense. DH-Posada (40-41). The Phillies weren’t about to give up 7-8 of their own prospects for Halladay…The Phillies not keeping Lee had nothing to do with money at all. If Jesus Montero proves to be somewhat competent at catcher, he will be starting there and perhaps even during the 2011 season.
And at the risk of hyperbole, the key takeaway may be: when the Mayans said the world would end in 2012, were they specifically talking about the Phils? Imagine the return they could have gotten for Howard? Chase Utley is signed for $15.3MM.
Returning again to the minors in 2010, Brummett was given a shot to pitch in the Arizona Fall League following that season. players that produce like ryan howard come around once in a great, great while. You forgot about Raul Ibanzez!
In other words, even without any decline from any of the seven players under contract that year, the Phillies are going to need a lot of their prospects step up. He was released on August 11, bringing Brummett’s career to an end just days before his 30th birthday. Ibanez, Polanco, trading Lee away for surprisingly little, and now Howard. And that’s a big time “yet”. Despite making the Southern League All-Star team, the Dodgers never gave him a shot to return to the majors. 9.5 mil is alot of money for Victorino! If you have any concerns about the Phillies bullpen, you can take a deep breath and relax.
Add that to your core of 7 mentioned above, add 5 internal bullpen pitchers (Bastardo plus the four I mentioned earlier), and now you have 4 SPs and 7 starting position players accounted for at a total ~115mm budget, with a total of 9 roster spots to fill (two starting players). He allowed just 74 hits over 90 innings with an 83/29 K:BB ratio. Then in 2011 he split the year between Reading and Lehigh Valley, after which he went to pitch in the Venezuelan Winter League. Then in 2009, Brummett again pitched at three levels, this time reaching Triple-A Lehigh Valley. Werth / Other R handed OF This is for 2012, once Howard’s new contract kicks in, not 2011.

He is (hopefully) going to have a lot of innings come 2012 and you have to wonder how long he can keep his pace up. The age-31 season of a pitcher with a career 4.21 ERA (Blanton). I never realized that this deal blocked utleys future with the team having hoard locked into 1st with limited no trade basically says to utley hey man sorry but once your deal is done and howard is stil at 1st we are going to part ways with our best over all hitter because we cant move him to first…good on phills.
