Giving him a contract was the beginning of a bad winter. It was a sign that this team is not moving on. This is not 2008-2011, they can no longer afford to have him on the roster when there are better players ready to take his place. I never saw a righty have less ability to hit lefties til Mayberry. His only saving grace was his ability to field many positions average. Is that what we are looking for? An average fielder and below average batter? We have Galvis for that, among others who have more of an upside, like Mayberry once promised to do once upon a time but the phillies didn't need him but now the outfield is piecemeal

Actually, they gave Mayberry a major league contract, so they'd be on the hook for his full salary.
