Juan Pierre would do very well on that bench for the Phillies.

It is amazing to me that he took this long to only sign for 800,000. It seems like there would be more interest in a player of his caliber. I’m not saying he is a Michael Bourne, but he certainly is no slouch.

Andrus will be paid more in bonus money than in his actual contract?? That’s pretty sly.

Am I crazy, or is that a steal for Juan Pierre?  Seriously, the SB is way underrated.
