Phillies Sign Chad Durbin

UPDATE, 12-21-07 at 9:34am: Well, Durbin only got $900K.  It's hard to complain about any signing at that price; this could definitely be a profitable move for the Phils.  The bigger concern is that this move ends their starting pitching search and leaves little behind Hamels and Myers.  An injury to either, and the Phillies seem done.

FROM 12-19-07 at 6:18pm:

According to Dejan Kovacevic, starter Chad Durbin has reached an agreement with the Phillies.  The Bucs missed out on another targeted free agent.

Durbin, a 30 year-old journeyman, posted a 4.72 ERA in 127 innings for the Tigers.  His numbers were below-average across the board; I'm not sure how much he'll help the Phillies' starting pitching woes.  They're looking at a rotation of Cole Hamels, Brett Myers, Kyle Kendrick, Jamie Moyer, and Durbin (no one's counting on Adam Eaton).  Beyond the front two that rotation is going to be pretty bad.
