Chris Schroder Signed

Recommended Posts

The Marlins have signed 31-year old righty reliever Chris Schroder. He pitched in 45 games (1 start) in AAA-ball last year and he was 3-1 with 3 saves, a 2.22 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP. He has pitched in 62 games (0 starts) in his major league career and he is 2-5 with a 4.46 ERA and a 1.28 WHIP. Maybe this will be the newest pitcher that Admin Beinfest pulls out of a hat. Still, it's disappointing watching teams like the Reds (Aroldis Chapman) and the Pirates (Ryan Church) outspending the Marlins.

I bet Reds and Pirates fans would take our 87 wins and Hanley. Chapman isn't worth anything near what he got. Why do we need an OF, since we're keeping Uggla and we have on paper Coghlan-Maybin-Ross.

 

Your criticism is ridiculous. Every team signs minor league players to contracts.

 

 

All I'm saying is that the Marlins are stuck in neutral while other teams with low payrolls are still bringing in players. The Marlins have done nothing to improve while all four of the teams in the division are getting better.

Since our team is relatively young we have the potential to improve and get better without having to bring in big name, expensive players. Of course I would love to have the luxury of signing a guy like Jason Bay, but we know how the Marlins operate and last year is a prime example of how we as a low payroll team can outperform a big spending team like the Mets.

The Marlins were better than the Mets because Jose Reyes, Carlos Delgado and Carlos Beltran all missed huge chunks of the season.

The Mets pitching is in shambles. David Wright forgot how to hit. Don't just blame it on injuries.

 

The Marlins need to sign Johnson. That's all they need to do besides evaluate young talent and see if it develops.

Hopefully we pick up some players who "forgot how to hit" this offseason...

Sometimes it better not to spend the money on lesser talents. If you look at the Royals they've been active but has signing Jason Kendall, Scott Podsednik and Brian Anderson really made them a contender?

 

 

 

Same applies to the Nationals.

It's why those franchises continue to suck.

Absolutely that influenced it, however expensive players are just as likely to get hurt as cheap players. And when you get next to no production out of a $20m guy because he is on the treatment table, you are gonna be pretty unhappy.

The book is still wide open on that 22 YO kid. According to the Reds web site, 6 years for at least a guaranteed $30.25 mil may just look like the deal of the decade if this kid pans out. And it's not that much of a stretch of the imagination to think he will. For a small market team like the Reds it was a very bold move, but one that very well could have a great return.

From reading most of the comments, it seems that everything the FO do is right and the other teams is wrong, you cannot win the lottery if you don't have a ticket, we have to take a chance on somebody, no one knows if a player would make it or not, do anyone think at this time Johnson should be in contract talk with the Marlins?

And now Brian Donnelly signs with Pittsburgh for $1.5 million to maybe close. I'm thrilled for the guy to get the two things he wanted (MLB & a relatively big paycheck).

 

 

 

 

 

Pittsburgh, PA, United States (AHN) - The Pittsburgh Pirates and Brendan Donnelly have come to contract terms. The veteran reliever signed a one-year deal worth $1.5 million.

The contract includes a performance bonus for the 38-year-old. Donnelly could earn $3 million if he meets the incentives.

Donnelly went 3-0 with a 1.78 ERA last season in 30 relief appearances for the Florida Marlins last season. He's 29-9 with a 3.02 career ERA in eight MLB seasons with the Angles, Red Sox, Indians and Marlins.

 

The Pirates decided not to offer Matt Capps a contract last month.

Capps was the team's closer last season. He's now with the Nationals, so Donnelly's signing fills a void.

Pittsburgh also signed former White Sox and Royals reliever D.J. Carrasco to a minor league deal. They're close to a deal with free agent Octavio Dotel.

 

Pittsburgh's bullpen was 18-28 last season and tied for 25th in the big leagues with a 4.61 ERA.

 

Donnelly has to pass a physical and the team needs to clear a roster spot before he can join the 40-man roster.
