$10.8 million over three years.

That's right, folks, Scho is going to make $3.6 million per year. I guess it pays to be a lefty.

That guy could have been offered a one-year minor league deal and he probably would have taken it.

To really put it in perspective:

MacDougal: 3 years/$6.45M
Thornton: 1 year/$0.355M
Sisco: 1 year/$0.3465M
Jenks: 1 year/$0.34M
Floyd: 1 year/$0.33M
Logan: 1 year/$0.327M

Anyone care to guess how long it will be before the New York Chapter of Schoe's Foes organizes?

I can't believe he started 19 games for the Sox in 2004...and a fabulous year it was: 6-9 with a 5.59 ERA.

Exhibit A was Omar Minaya is not a smart GM

I hope Shoney didn't injure his pitching arm in his rush to sign that before they came to their senses. Just boggles the mind. I imagine "negotiations" went something like this:

SSagent: "If Ted Lilly is worth $10M/yr for 5 yrs for maybe 6 innings of work per outing then my main man Scotty is worth $3M/yr for 2 yrs for 2 innings a crack"
Minaya: "No way! Make it $3.6M/yr for 3 yrs or we're finished here."
SSagent: "We'll take it. You drive a hard bargain, sir." (to cell phone--> "Scotty, get you ass over here ASAP. Minaya has lost his mind and offered $3.6M/yr for 3 yrs!"

Paying players millions of dollars won't make them play like million-dollar players.

As Bill Veeck once said: "How much can you pay a flower to bloom?"

My father switched me from being a lefty when I was a kid. Conversely, I tried unsuccessfully to get my son to toss lefty when he was a yoot. Dad did it because he didn't like me being a lefty. I attempted it because I knew someone like Mets would pay my son a lot to throw BP and still have a job every year. Amazing.

So, will we take the entire White Sox bullpen for $3.5 million a year or Schoe alone for $3.6 million?:rolleyes:

Or in good ol' Schoney's case, "How much can you pay a turd to sink?"

What's really scary is if the Mets roatation is as flimsy as it was in 2006, he may get the opportunity to start some games.

Schoenweis is the latest example of why everyone should teach their son to pitch left-handed. Catching and being a switch hitter are both good choices, too.

With all the cash being thrown at pitchers this winter, shouldn't Chuck McElroy be considering a comeback?

He lead the league in quality starts until the end of May when he got hurt. Felix Diaz was recalled and had a miracle win against the Cubs in early June.

Please don't remind me. I was telling all my friends how Diaz was the real deal and gonna be the next big pitcher for the White Sox. After about 2 more starts I realized what an idiot I was. I apologize, he got me excited.


But yeah I'll take the 6 guys in our bullpen over Scott Schoeneweis (who for the record has way too many e's in his last name).

My kids will learn all three skills. Even if I only have daughters. :D:

This is a prime example of why I understand what Kenny was doing with the Freddy/Brandon trades.

If Scho got that kind of dough to blow, who knows what it would cost for a guy who can actually throw?
