It's been confirmed that the Phillies have re-signed lefty reliever J.C. Romero with a 3-year, $12 million deal with a club option for a fourth. It's a lot of money for a very middle reliever who's been inconsistent at best over his career, but it's hard not to like the deal after seeing how well Romero pitched down the stretch.
