Adding to the sting of Nix's terrible play this season were the solid numbers Nate Schierholtz has posted while playing for tonight's Phillies opponent, the Cubs. With the need for only one extra left handed outfielder in the offseason, the Phillies let Schierholtz walk. This season Schierholtz is hitting .268, with 14 home runs and 43 RBI's.
While it does sting to have seen Schierholtz producing this season, we can now at least rejoice in one thing, Laynce Nix is gone.
