…. Ridiculous

That’s what this is.

“We said from the beginning of our offseason that we would try to improve the club in any way we could,” assistant general manager Ruben Amaro said. “We feel that with the acquisition of Feliz, we have helped to solidify an already productive infield. Pedro is an above average defender who will provide some overall balance to our lineup.”

Feliz gets $3 million this year and $5 million next year. Philadelphia has a $5 million option for 2010 with a $500,000 buyout.

Pedro is an out-making machine who kills far more rallies with his bat than he does with his glove. He is one of the worst everyday regulars of the last twenty years, rivaling only Neifi Perez and a handful of others for overall offensive ineptitude, 20-something home runs notwithstanding.

A GM who cannot see how terrible he is deserves to be tarred and feathered. A GM who goes out and gets him has no business running a team.

David Pinto thinks like me:

Feliz owns a .276 career OBA on the road, and hasn’t had a season with a .300 OBA since 2004. It’s not like he’s a decent hitter with a great glove. He’s a black hole of outs at third base.
