The Phillies are bringing back Brian Schneider for another season as their backup catcher. They announced this afternoon they had signed him to a one-year, $800,000 contract. The contract has $200,000 worth of incentives.

The Phillies have hired former closer Tom Gordon as a part-time scout in Florida. … Phillies bench coach Pete Mackanin is no longer a candidate for the managerial jobs with the Boston Red Sox and Chicago Cubs. The Cubs hired Dale Sveum, while the Red Sox are looking elsewhere. … Triple-A manager Ryne Sandberg did not get the St. Louis Cardinals’ managerial vacancy, which means he will be back with the organization next season. … Friday is the deadline for the Phillies to protect Minor League players by placing them on the 40-man roster. … The Phillies have hired Minor League conditioning coordinator Shawn Fcasni as their assistant athletic trainer. He replaces Mark Andersen, who resigned after the season.

I can’t believe that they can’t find somebody better than Brian Schneider and I hope they have better backups in the system in case anybody gets hurt. I’m sick of guys like Sardinha.

Gee, thanks for having my back (not) when I was critical of that move 5 days ago. Stepford Phillies fans think he was a good signing. I think it’s a shame he’s the best they can do.

The Phils traded away Estrada, Jaramillo, Marson, and D’Arnauld. I hope Sardinha is not the only option left in the Pharm system…..
