Good riddance: Adam Eaton is an Oriole

Philadelphia has lost another beloved sports figure! No, wait, it's just Adam Eaton.

Lost in all the news about the Eagles was a move the Phillies made on Friday when they finally got rid of Adam Eaton. Despite owing him another 9 million dollars, the Phils chose to eat salary and waived Eaton, ending his illustrious Philadelphia career. Eaton spent two years with the Phils and finished 14-18 with an ERA in the high 5's. He played absolutely no role in the Phillies championship run.

Shockingly, another major league club was willing to pick up Eaton. The Baltimore Orioles, obviously desperate for pitching help, signed Eaton to a minor league deal. The Orioles invited him to Spring Training and even expect Eaton to compete for a spot in the starting rotation. If he makes the team at all, the Orioles will officially be the worst team in baseball.

The Phillies will still be on the hook to pay Eaton for this season but they have to look at it as addition by subtraction. Eaton may go down as one of the worst free agent signings in not only Phillies history but also in the entire history of baseball. I guess 24 million doesn't buy what it used to.

How would Eaton making the 40 man roster make the O's the worst team in baseball? Yeah he did not do good with the Philly's, but at least we signed him for a minor league contract. I'm sure a lot more teams in the MLB have a worse vet pitchers in their organization then Eaton. Not like a high 5 era is absolutely horrible, not good, bot not horrible. He would just be a inning eater in case of a injury.

You obviously haven't watched Eaton as closely as us Phillies fans, he is an absolute waste. If the Orioles are so bad that he makes the team then you can bet another last place finish is in order. Eaton is horrible!

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of troubles when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in large initial investment.
Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I started to get real income.
It's all about how to choose a correct partner who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the income with me.

You may ask, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I earn money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.
