Brian Schneider is No Longer the Enemy

On the heels of the news regarding Chris Coste signing with the New York Metropolitans, the Phillies have signed Brian Schneider to a 2-year contract. The deal is reportedly worth $3 million for the former Metropolitan and National.

With local ties, Schneider will get the chance to play for his hometown team. He grew up playing youth baseball in Northampton, Pennsylvania.

I approve of this signing. Schneider is a steadily productive and generally healthy catcher who can fill the "2-3 games a week" role that manager Charlie Manuel likes to utilize during the season, to prevent wear and tear on everyday catcher Carlos Ruiz.

Schneider is a career .251 hitter with a .697 OPS in 10 Major League seasons. In recent seasons, Schneider's offensive output has been considerably better in the City of Brotherly Love. In 42 career games at Citizens Bank Park, he is a .266 hitter with a .784 OPS.

In "You're damn right they did" news, the Angels chose to give deceased pitcher Nick Adenhart's estate a full postseason bonus share. The Angels' shares were worth $138,039. More details on playoffs shares around baseball can be found here. Adenhart, a rookie, was killed in a motor vehicle accident caused by a drunk driver back in April.

Frosty Phillies Favorites: 2021 Edition w/ DJ Stewart

Season's greetings to all of you! It's that time of the year to celebrate and enjoy the holiday season. Every year at Christmas time, I survey a group of Phillies prospects about what they get excited for during the holidays.  This year, we focus on just one up and coming player, corner infielder DJ Stewart. The 22-year-old righty batter had a solid season in 2021. In 94 games combined with Class A Clearwater and Class A Advanced Jersey Shore, Stewart notched a .265 batting average with 14 home runs, 42 RBI and five stolen bases.  Recently, I talked with DJ to gain his feedback on all of his holiday favorites.

This Christmas by Chris Brown.  It's the final song of my favorite Christmas movie. -What's your favorit

Season's greetings to all!  It's that time of the year to celebrate and enjoy the holiday season.  Every year at Christmas time, I survey a group of Phillies prospects about what they get excited for during the holidays.  This year I included a throwback Phils name as well. Individuals taking part in this year's 11th annual Christmas favorites survey include former Phillies All-Star and coach Mickey Morandini as well as pitching prospects Dominic Pipkin , Erik Miller and Ben Brown along with corner infielder Matt Kroon. Inquiries and responses regarding each player's holly jolly favorites lie ahead...   -What's your favorite Christmas song and which version? Morandini- All I Want For Christmas by Mariah Carey. Pipkin- Blue Christmas by Elvis.  It's just unbeatable.   Miller- I don't like Christmas music, to be honest. Kroon- I am a big fan of the original Jingle Bells. It reminds me of being a kid again. It reminds me of all the holiday act

This Guy Speaks For All of You

This individual, interviewed by FOX 29 on Friday as the Phillies arrived back at Citizens Bank Park, said it best. When asked how he felt regarding the Phillies, he told Steve Keeley that he was, "Stoked, baby!" The unidentified phanatic then proclaimed, "We are talking about the Fightins here, the Fightins! Said!" Check out the media player below, as the transcribed version certainly does not do this phireball of phandom justice. The Phillies forced game 6 of the National League Championship Series with a 4-2 victory over the Giants in San Francisco on Thursday night. Game 6 will feature Roy Oswalt vs. Jonathan Sanchez in a return pitching match up from game 2. First pitch is scheduled for 7:57 pm EST at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia. Be sure to tune in on 97.3 ESPN's Weekend Sports Guide with Tyrone Johnson this afternoon around 1:15pm to hear me chatting about the Phillies! 97.3 is based in Atlantic City.
