Excerpt from 1/9/09- Tom Quinlan played parts of 4 seasons in the majors collecting only 9 hits total, 7 of those hits coming in 1994 with the Phils. Robb Quinlan is still plugging away with the Angels and has collected 275 hits so far. Tom was also a helluva hockey player, being drafted in the 4th round in 1986 by the Calgary Flames...maybe he should have went that route instead.
Well, fear no longer, the better brother has finally joined the Philadelphia Phillies. Amaro, who has been a busy boy inking players to minor league contracts, signed Robb to one yesterday. Thing is, Robb, who will turn 34 next season, has really fallen on tough times since that post going .216/.554 in 77 games over the past 2 seasons. The good news, he can play first, third, and outfield and adds depth in the minors. By the Phils throwing this washed-up/has-been a bone they truly are acting as the City of Brotherly Love.
