John Bowker, we hardly knew ye. John Bowker has been released. Bowker will wisely head to Japan, where even Scott Mathieson is a millionaire.
The Phillies' primary left-handed August trade deadline acquisition, Bowker went 0 for 13, for a lusty .000 batting average, and clogged a 40-man roster spot for most of the offseason.
The Phillies now have a 40-man roster spot to add another player.
Please post your favorite John Bowker memory. Mine is that time he hit a ball foul down the line that was *almost* a hit.
