Wow. John Mayberry must have one hell of an agent.

Well I think it’s based on time of service, and Mayberry’s been up and down from AAA to The Show and back several times since he was first called up in May 2009 (and subsequently took Pettite yard with a 3-run shot in his second at-bat).

I believe the reason Mayberry got so much is because he has appeared in at least 50 major league games. Worley, Carpenter, and Brown all have major league experience and get more then the minor league minimum. However, Carlos Rivero has a great agent because has not been above Double A and gets more then the monor league minimum.

Mayberry’s $400,000 salary was signed in 2009, after he was traded for Greg Golson. He didn’t get any Major League at-bats until the 2009 season. How does that equate to Major League service?
As Whitey used to say, “You could look it up.”

I stand by my statement.

His salary is $193, 969/minors and $414,000/majors. All of the people on that list got $414, 000 because it is the major league minimum. I was refering to his $103, 969 for the minors while most of that list got $33,000. The $400K at that website was the major league minimum in 2009 and has nothing to do with the trade.

Whatever the reason, this year determines whether Mayberry will be a MLB player (even a bench guy) or a career minor leaguer. Let the man earn some cash

Halladay, Lee, Oswalt, Hamels, Blanton, Kendrick, Lidge, Madson, Romero, Contreras, Baez, Howard, Utley, Rollins, Polanco, Ibanez, Victorino, Francisco, Brown, Ruiz, Schneider, Gload, Valdez.
That’s 23 players that are pretty much set to make the ballclub. The last two have to come from a mix of Mayberry, DeFratus, Herndon, Mathieson, Bastardo, Worley, Stutes and any one of the veterans they signed to minor league contracts (guys like Sullivan, Quinlan, Young and Grilli). There’s a good chance that players like Blanton and Kendrick get traded this spring, which could open up a few spots for the young kids, especially in the bullpen. Who’s the backup first baseman? Who’s the backup CFer? The team is really good, but it has some vulnerability if there are injuries. I think the bullpen will be fine but I worry about the bench.

your 23 is spot on.The back up 1B is gload, the back up CF is, by media reports, Valdez. Given that your 23 breaks up to 11 pitchers and 12 posistion guys, the question is how many Pitchers do they carry. If they go with 12, then look for Bastardo to make it. I can’t imagine them going with 13. If they carry a 4 man bench, (14 posistion guys) then Mayberry looks like he has the best shot, unless someone has an amazing spring. IF they go with a 6 man bench he makes it with no trouble. Big question is, are both Blanton and KK on the team still come opening day, or has one been traded already?

I think Delwyn Young might have a shot. Brandon Moss for that matter, as well, if he gets any shots this Spring.

If 12 pitchers it’s either Bastardo Or Worley.
