Mike Schmidt is in Clearwater today to annoy work with select players and, presumably, give his annual Mike Schmidt Gives His Annual State of the Phillies Annual Address state of the Phillies annual address on the state of the Phillies, given annually. He will do so without a mustache, which is moderately alarming.
Two years ago, Schmidt said Jimmy Rollins and Shane Victorino were underachieving. That summer, he threw Chooch under a bus. And just this October, he complained about autographs. My money is on either Cliff Lee or, yet again, Carlos Ruiz being Schmidt’s target today. I base that on nothing, much the same way Schmidt chooses his verbal victims.
