Domonic Brown and Ben Revere, underachievers both in their own ways (namely defensively), have avoided arbitration, with the Phillies signing each of them to one-year deals that amount to gigantic raises. According to Austin Laymance at

Revere will earn $4.1 million after making a base salary of $1.95 million in 2014. Brown, eligible for arbitration for the first time in his career, will earn $2.5 million after receiving $550,000 last year.

And thus, the arguments that they both just became overpaid can be heard on WIP and The Fanatic from now until this time next year.

  1. Wrong. WIP & The Fanatic will ignore this until they’re finished spending the next four months taking about getting a QB they have not shot at getting. Regardless, they should ignore it.

  2. That Cowboys loving, horrible player isn’t worth 25 cents. Couldn’t they have just released him?

  3. Revere posted a 2.0 WAR, worth $11.1 so he’s actually still a decent bargain. Brown is a waste and should have not been tendered.

    1. You must be kidding me. These fucktards here don’t know who Bill James is without Googling it. You’re wasting your breath, most of these people have been brainwashed by the head fucktards on WIP who think WAR is good for absolutely nuthin’. I’ll say it again. Absolutely nuthin’. Huh!

      The fact is in 2014 that Ben Revere has 4th highest batting average for an OF in both leagues. The lowest strike out rate in both leagues for an OF. Third lowest strike out rate of any MLB player period. He’s fast. I’m not saying he’s great but people need to realize he has good value in spite of his deficiencies. OBP, arm strength, and walk rate are real problem, but he’s got an upside. Give him a break, we’re lucky that trade worked out for us.

  4. At first base, Bugs Bunny….at second base, Bugs Bunny….at third base Bugs Bunny……..ah, you get the picture.

  5. How does Ruben still have a job? I’m legitimately baffled. He is the absolute worst GM in all of baseball. I bet the Sixers win more games than the Phillies this year. Unreal.
