And the Schierholtz era comes to an end. The Giants have an institutional lack of patience with their young position players, Posey and Panda notwithstanding.
Gary Brown better get off to a great start or they will be trading him for Alfonso Soriano.
Still seems like a net loss since the Phillies had to send Cosart and Singleton to Houston to get Pence a year ago. So they paid Cosart, Singleton, and $~7M for a year of Hunter Pence and Joseph, Schierholtz, and Rosin.
I have not looked at any numbers, but he always looked like a + right fielder. Any upside there for the phillies? I always liked him but that was becasue he was one of the few near average hitters on the giants.
that means that when they go over the tax next year, they'll only be paying 13 cents on the dollar as a first time offender, as opposed 40, which is what they'd be paying as a repeat offender.
V.. COMPETITIVE BALANCE TAX
a. The threshold level of $178 million in 2011 will remain unchanged in 2012 and 2013. The
threshold will increase to $189 million for 2014, 2015, and 2016.
b. The tax rate will decrease to 17.5% for Clubs that exceed the threshold for the first time, and
the rate will increase to 50% for Clubs that exceed the threshold for the fourth time or more.
Rates will remain the same for Clubs that exceed the threshold for the second time (30%) and
third time (40%). The CBT rates in 2012 will be subject to a transition rule.
c. The Competitive Balance Tax structure under the 2006 Basic Agreement will be modified so that
a team that moves below the threshold will be treated as going over for the first time when it
next exceeds the threshold.
Way wrong. Talk about cherry-picking your stats.
What about the good year Pence had in 2010, that was not BABIP driven? Or the good year Pence had in 2009, that was not BABIP driven? Both of those being years in which Schierholtz did not have a good year? Because Schierholtz has never hit for any power in the major leagues?
