Ruben Amaro is determined to sign every over-30 player available. The Phillies have signed Chad Qualls to a one-year, $1.15 million deal.
Another upside move for The Big Poker– Qualls, 33, was 6-8 with a 3.51 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP last season in the Padres‘ ginormous park.
The Phillies' focus this offseason has been on rounding out the roster with experienced Major League players, not infusing the aging lineup with young talent. It's clear that they are going for broke while the Halladay-Lee window is still wide open. And we wouldn't want it any other way.
