Jerome Williams re-signs with Phils

I don’t mean what I’m about to write to be a swipe at Williams or the Phils.  Here we have a pitcher with 422 IP and an 82 ERA+ from 2012-14.  Sure, the FIP is a bit better, probably close to 90.  The main thing he has going for him is MLB experience (but not any recent success), a willingness to take the mound whenever the manager wants and, after a lot of ups and downs, some durability. 

That’s worth $2.5 M it seems.  Not an obvious overpay as b-r lists his salaries the last two years as $2 M and $2.1 M.
