Two perplexing moves have come out since I started the Chris Coste column I’m writing, which is taking way longer than it should because I keep getting interrupted by actual work:
Brian Schneider has signed a two-year (!) deal with the Phillies and Kelly Shoppach has been traded to the Rays for a player to be named later.
What has two thumbs and no idea what’s going on right now? This guy.
Someone was willing to give a two-year contract to Brian Schneider, and Kelly Shoppach only cost a player to be named later? Yikes.
Of course, of course, it’s the Rays that got Shoppach. Obviously. It’s too smart a pickup for almost anybody else.
Back to writing the column now. It’s not even good. Sorry for the delay.
