When Ruben Amaro shoveled Jerome Williams out of the garbage heap of released players without employment, it was out of necessity, not genius. Well, Amaro is rocking a smug smirk now that Williams has pitched brilliantly through his first 4 starts with the Phillies. Let's jut hope Amaro doesn't extend him for 3 YR/$30M, because 4 starts is an extremely small sample size...
