When he was signed and I laughed about it people said he was just insurance, etc. A lot like the Delmon Young thing. But it seems like he’s on a course to actually contribute to the Phillies. And, with the Nats sorta sucking air at the moment, those contributions will come in what, for a while anyway, might be a race for second place.
