Right as Jonathan Papelbon appears to have not only entered his biggest slump in a Phillies uniform, but also have gotten fed up with not winning, the Phillies bullpen got more encouraging news today. *Sarcasm alert*

“Not good,” he said after having his right shoulder examined in Los Angeles on Tuesday. “I’ve got some tears in there — rotator cuff and labrum.”

“This season doesn’t look good — highly unlikely,” he said. “This year almost probably a no.”

Those quotes come from six million dollar a year setup man Mike Adams, who is all but a certainty to be out for 2013 according to CSN Philly’s Jim Salisbury. 

Ruben Amaro signed Adams to a three-year deal worth 18 million dollars this past offseason, and sold Philadelphia that the 34 year-old Adams would be the answer to the eighth inning woes that plagued the Phillies in 2012. Instead Adams mixed another DL stint with a 1-4 record, while posting a 3.96 ERA. And now he is out for the season.

Ruben Amaro’s contracts, the gifts that just keep on giving. But guys, he isn’t going to sell at the deadline.
