There truly is such a thing as addition by subtraction and the Phillies need to apply that new math to their questionable bullpen. Rheal Cormier hasn't gotten the job done this spring and has generally been pretty disappointing during his stint in Philly. Cormier is guaranteed a nice chunk of change this season, but so what? The left-hander has worn out his welcome in the city of the cracked bell and needs to be shown where the entrance ramp to the turnpike is.
