“I think I’ve established myself as a big-leaguer,” Eaton said. “I’m getting paid extremely handsomely, probably more than I’m worth. But everyone is not worth what they’re getting paid. It’s fun. If you don’t like the competition, what are you doing here? Everyone should thrive on competition.”
He said this after giving up a 3-run bomb in his first appearance of the spring.
Yes Adam, you aren’t worth what you’re paid. You were one of the bottom 5 starting pitchers in the league, and got this mark because the Phillies refused to sit you or send you to the bullpen. I understand a pro athlete has to think highly of themselves, but no one should be THIS delusional. A 6.29 ERA and 1.63 WHIP is really all that I need to counter any sort of argument that Eaton is a good pitcher. I don’t need to delve into higher stats, I don’t really need to go over scouting or counter with anecdotal evidence. Those numbers are really all you need. Apparently Eaton needs more to convince himself he sucks.
