Shane for 3
Another day, another 3-year contract signing. Good to have Shane under contract through 2012.
Ruben and his lieutenants have done a great job in keeping this team together. Carlos is the last arbitration-eligible player for this year. Negotiations continue on that front.
One of the offseason acquisitions has been catcher Brian Schneider, signed as a free agent. He’s a plus addition and gives the Phillies an experienced catcher to work with Carlos. He certainly knows the NL East.
Brian will sign autographs (first 500) on Monday evening (25th), 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Majestic Clubhouse Store.
Chris Wheeler will also be on hand to sign copies of his new book, A View from the Booth.
Phillie Phanatic and the new Phillies ballgirl team will be part of the event open to all fans. Free parking is in lot P on Darien Street.
More Blog Notes
Sue was kind enough to post the following comment in Phillies Insider yesterday:
I also wanted to mention that in addition to the great Phillies Phollowers blog, four other Phillies fan blogs were in the top 100.
#43 – Phillies Red Pinstripes
#63 – Rants, Raves, and Random Thoughts [OK, yeah, that's mine :-) ]
#89 – Outside the Phillies Looking In
#99 – How ‘Bout Those Phils?
Thanks Sue. My fault for not recognizing them. A belated congrats to the four.
