I hear ya. But, didn't Hermida re-sign with the Pads? And Drew is "threatening" to retire because noone is stepping up with enough money? Drew has had a sense of entitlement since he rejected the Phillies when they originally drafted him, a million dollar talent with a ten cent head. The definition of lazy. I just think Ankiel has enough talent to make for a very interesting non-roster invitee. If nothing else, he is every bit as good as Willie Harris. Could turn out to be a very effective bench player for somebody.
