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!
The following is a list of some minor league free agents I feel as a wannabe GM the Phils should throw a bone and add for depth playing for the Iron Pigs.
Matt Daley - Bucknell University graduate, my Alma Marta.
Jose De La Torre
Robinson Tejada - former Phillie
Mark DiFelice - 3.77 ERA/1.22 WHIP with nearly a K per inning in the Majors.
Ryan Edell - in Phils system last year
Tony Abreu - 27 years old, .310/.799 in 8 minor league seasons.
Jesus Merchen - used to be in Phils system
Drew Sutton - 28 years old, .280/.815 in 8 minor league seasons.
Brendan Katin - .262/.874 over last 4 seasons in AAA
Brandon Moss - September callup for Phils
