Notes On the 09 Phillies: Big H Adopting Kids and Costey Signs A Split Contract

I found this post on the7000level.com this afternoon about how Cole and Heidi Hamels plan on adopting AIDS children from Africa. 

Here is the link to the Sports Illustrated story that released that information. 

I think that is pretty cool what Big H and his wife are doing. It is pretty clear the Phillies are a team of generous individuals. While the Hamels do this, the Ulteys, Chase and Jennifer, are big advocates of the SPCA. 

My other Phillies note is something that Phillies MLB.com beat writer Todd Zolecki reported in his blog. He said Chris Coste and the Phils have agreed to a split contract, $464,000 in the majors and $249,000 in the minors. 

Let me tell you something, if Costey is not on the big club this season, I am going to be pissed off. He is a right handed power bat and not that bad of  a defensive catcher, even though everyone claims him to be.

Costey is the quintessential Philadelphian athlete. He can connect to the Philly fans—always getting slapped in the face, but still fighting and pulling through.

I wish him the best of luck and hope he makes the big club.
