Phils Sign Romero to 3 years

The Phillies signed left-handed reliever J.C. Romero to a three-year contract extension over the weekend.  The deal is worth $12 million, and includes a club option for 2011 that would bring the total value to $16.75 million.  I think most will agree that this is a good signing.  There is no guarantee that Romero will pitch like he did in September over the next three years, but at this point, considering the state of the Phillies bullpen without Romero this was a necessary move.  The 2008 bullpen is thus shaping up as follows:

Brad Lidge

Setup men
Tom Gordon
Ryan Madson
J.C. Romero

Potential Rest of Bullpen (Pick 4)
Kane Davis
Francisco Rosario
Yoel Hernandez
Matt Smith
Scott Mathieson
Mike Zagurski
Clay Condrey
J.D. Durbin
Kyle Lohse
Joe Bisenius
John Ennis
Anderson Garcia
J.A. Happ
Julio Mateo

Looking for work
Antonio Alfonseca
Jose Mesa
Jon Lieber
Freddy Garcia

As for my four, assuming everyone is healthy, I would like to see Matt Smith (LHP), Clay Condrey (RHP), Scott Mathieson (RHP), and Francisco Rosario (RHP) round out the ‘pen.  What’s your four?
