Schneider Robs Phils & Minor League Grab Bag


*Why couldn't have Schneider disappeared like the man he's pictured with above?

Brian Schneider will "earn" a guaranteed 1 year $800K contract in 2012 with the Philadelphia Phillies with another $200K in incentives dangling like a carrot before the horse. All that for a .502 OPS and 13% CS. Essentially he'll will be robbing the Phils next season. Blame Amaro!

Meh. With Amaro, I was expecting 3 years/$8 million. At least they can just cut him if he continues to suck, and the backup catcher will never see the field in a playoff game anyway. It's hard to imagine him getting any worse.

Hard to imagine him getting much better either.

Kratz is a good backup atleast . Maybe even challenge to start

astros going to the al west after the 2012 season is over

damn, guess this will be the last year i'll be able to look forward to us playing our has-beens.

I hate that inter-league play will be everyday of the regular season now. Stupid. To DH or not to DH?

This is going to cause more unbalance most likely. Can't see how this works out to an even schedule all around.

it'll be 15 teams in each league, that's how i would see it as even.

also they're gonna add two wildcards now but the wildcards are gonna have a one-game playoff to see who goes to the postseason. so at least it's only *one* more game...

Pavlof Volcano * Review and draft responses to various legal documents and correspondence for the attorney's signature. The law firm that handled this matter on behalf of the family reported that the case went to trial and that the jury awarded the parents $4.4 million.
