Ive read it is 2/12 including a vesting option for a 3rd. It is an over payment but if he can get people out in the 8th I dont care. Because nobody last year on the Phillies sure as hell could.

Tim Brown ‏@TBrownYahoo
Mike Adams' third year ($6.5m) vests with Phils if he appears in 60 games in '13 AND '14, or if he appears in 65 in '14 alone.

And now they've signed John Lannan too.

lannan gets 1 yr deal with phils

Jon Heyman ‏@JonHeymanCBS
lannan gets $2,5M guraranteed

Jon Heyman ‏@JonHeymanCBS
lannan can make additional $2.5M in performance bonuses w/ phillies, so could be $5M total. long beach (ny) high grad

adams has appeared in 61, 75, 70 games counting back from this year.

i'd say it's a safe bet that option vests.

3 years for a 33 year old guy in the bullpen is not a good signing.

Both are good signings. I've wanted Adams for a while. Lannan would be good for a long bullpin session guy (2 or more innings). Think of a left handed Kendrick, if he doesn't make the rotation that is.

Adams is a good pitcher for sure. Would've liked to have him back in Texas but that's just more than I would've been comfortable giving out.

I like the deals. Adams could fill in from time to time as closer if Paps gets overworked, too. I like where the team is going!
