Grading The Offseason To Date



Let’s count the offseason progress:

Additions
Ronny Paulino (C)
Raul Ibanez (LF)
John Mayberry Jr. (OF)
Jamie Moyer (SP)
Chan Ho Park (SP/RP)
Scott Mathieson (SP/RP)

Subtractions
Jason Jaramillo (C)
Pat Burrell (LF)
Tadahito Iguchi (2B)
So Taguchi (OF)
Greg Golson (OF)
Rudy Seanez (RP)
Tom Gordon (RP)

Yes, the Phils have basically filled holes this offseason. Burrell out, Ibanez in. Seanez out, Park in. Golson out, Mayberry in. Jaramillo out, Paulino in.

Are the Phillies finished with their offseason shopping? Reports say Ruben Amaro has looked at more than 20 non-tendered players, meaning he’s still fishing the lake for minor catches. It’s possible the Phillies will add another bench bat (especially right-handed) and a reliever (would love some veteran experience near the back).

But, for posterity sake, let’s say Amaro has finished his offseason shopping. Are you satisfied?

Grade the offseason (on the A to F scale) so far. At this moment, I’d give Amaro a C-plus. The plus is the Chan Ho Park addition. While everything else seemed to be lateral, Park could turn to be a coup if used correctly.

What’s your grade?
