The Phillies, In A Nutshell

With the Miami Marlins signing Chone Figgins to a Minor League contract, I looked up the least valuable players over the last two years. As you would expect, Figgins is way up there.

1 Greg Dobbs -2.6 781 2011 2012 32-33
2 Wilson Valdez -2.5 508 2011 2012 33-34

If your memory is sharp, you’ll notice that a whopping six of the nine players on the Least Valuable Players in the Last Two Years list have had some involvement with the Phillies in the not-too-distant past. If you’re an optimist, you can look at it as, “hey, at least most of those years didn’t actually come with the Phillies.”
