« Phillies best-case scenario: Bourn, Willingham, Youk | Main | Phils, Rangers in 'advanced talks' for Michael Young »

Rube knows that the answer to all our problems lies in the Rule 5 draft.

I could see where Schierholtz was kept with Nix since the bench is likely very right handed (Kratz, Mayberry, Frandsen and maybe Ruf). I hated getting Schierholtz in the Pence deal but there is a chance he hits for more power in another home park.

I'd prefer him over Nix because defensively he is better but with Nix already paid it seems redundant. For all the hate both these guys get they both seem like decent platoon options.

Now a Young rumor? Ugh. Even if the Rangers eat half of his salary and don't expect much in return, $8M next year for him seems like an awful lot for a guy who there is a strong chance is at the end of his rope.

Ugh, why is Corey Seidman all over this blog all the sudden?
