The Cubs have released Paul Bako, which means the backup catcher job goes to 30-year-old career minor leaguer – and chainsaw wielding badass – Koyie Hill.
The decision saves the Cubs about $150k after the difference in Hill’s and Bako’s salaries is coupled with the termination pay Bako gets.
It’s funny how $150k is such chump change in the world of professional baseball. I would probably eat a year’s worth of cat droppings for $150k.
