Don Fehr's severance package comes in at about $11 million. He made $1 million a year for the past decade or so, which is way below his worth based on what he does and who he tangles with on a day to day basis. His work has put hundreds of times that amount of money into the pockets of the players he has represented. According to the article, the players had no problem agreeing to pay him his dough.
I don't have anything snarky to say about Steve Phillips' situation. Some bad judgment on his part has led to an ugly and possibly scary situation, and that's no good for anyone involved, whatever their foibles.

Of course, like the unwritten rules, umpires say there are no such things as makeup calls, so we should probably ignore it, right? I guess we can just be thankful that it didn't have an impact on the ultimate outcome of the game.
Pointless day off today. Burtnett vs. Lackey tomorrow. Philly vs. New York, hell, sometime around Thanksgiving, I think.
