The Phillies have declined the $4.5million option for 2011 on J.C. Romero's contract. A shell of his 2008 self over the last few seasons, the Phillies' situational left-hander was reduced to the role of "situational walk machine" as he compiled a strike-out to walk ratio of under one.
The only remaining lefty that can be counted on is Antonio Bastardo, who is far from proven. This will certainly have to be an area that the Phillies address during the off-season.
Now, who will fist-pump and crotch grab their way to the dugout?
