How's that for a title?
- Todd Zolecki (@toddzolecki) reports that the Phillies' full playoff shares are $123,140.50. That means each rostered player and coach (43 folks in total) will receive a hefty paycheck for being the National League runner-up. And who said second place was the first loser?
Each Giants player will receive $317,631.29 for winning the World Series. Bengie Molina will likely receive full shares from both the Rangers and the Giants (his former team), totaling $563,910.84 or $43,377.75 per playoff game. Life is tough in The Show.
- Domonic Brown, who didn't get an at-bat in his first four winter league games, is 0 for his last 17 with Escogido of the Dominican League. That's not good, folks. Perhaps he's not the obvious replacement for Werth…
- And finally, the Phillies released their 2011 promotional schedule. Highlights? A Roy Halladay Cy Young Collectible Tin (at least it's not a creepy ass bronzed hand) on April 2nd and a Placido Polanco Bobblehead on August 16th (head shipped separately).
Now, back to Winter.
