Not surprisingly, Scott Schoeneweis declined arbitration.
I’m not too bothered by that; he was very good as a Red, but I’m afraid we can probably chalk that up to small sample size. I wouldn’t have minded having him back in the pen for 2007, but the draft pick that the Reds will receive when Schoeneweis signs elsewhere will ease any withdrawal pains.
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
