Halladay, Lee, Hamels Shine in Cy Young Voting

Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels finished in the top five in NL Cy Young voting.

Read the story here.


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…..
