Behind the plate

No court coverage this year, where Howard works out a monster arbitration or anything of that sort. With the late-weekend wrap up of Carlos Ruiz to a three-year deal at $8.85 million, the Phillies have navigated the arbitration circuit and made deals with all eligible players.

I’ve always felt Ruiz was a silent hero on the team, and though I don’t know the nuances of baseball, any man that can wrangle the personalities of a primadonna pitching staff gets mad respect from me. Glad to have you along, Carlos.
