Phillies Re-Sign Nonfactor Scott Podsednik to Minor League Deal


Per the rule that the Phillies only sign 35-year-old men to play in their farm system, Scott Podsednik has been re-signed by the organization for another year, along with several others with even less name recognition to use for SEO purposes.

Your fondest Scott Podsednik memory is probably the one when, as a Dodger, he was chasing down Ben Francisco’s one-run double in the eighth inning of this pretty hilarious comeback win.

The man has spent his career seeing his name in small time media headlines announcing his closure of another minor league deal.  Year after year, season after season, his applicable bat and functioning legs have allowed him to evolve into a totally serviceable minor league baseball player, and his Wikipedia page has the contents to prove it.

Anyway, you’d think at this point in his career, Scott would be seeking out a warmer climate, even if it was just out of curiosity.  But he seems content to spend another year with Ryne Sandberg in Lehigh Valley, filling a roster spot that probably used to have a flashy young promising outfielder in it.  At least, I assume he’s content.  I don’t even really remember what he looks like, let alone how he feels.
