PSL: The Parking Lot Pecking Order

there are so many players in camp, from major leaguers to minor leagues to non-roster invitees, but only 14 players have reserved parking spaces…

…there are two rows of parking spaces, each including roughly 25 spots…the first spot in one row is for Carlos Beltran, followed in order by Jose Reyes, Jose Valentin, Oliver Perez, Scott Schoeneweis, and Orlando Hernandez

…the next row, which is closest to the actual stadium, begins with Pedro Martinez, followed in order by Carlos Delgado, Moises Alou, Willie Randolph, David Wright, Billy Wagner, Johan Santana, Aaron Heilman and Luis Castillo…

the list appears to include the team’s highest paid players, all-stars, the starting rotation, and heilman, who has been on the team longer than any other player short of reyes…it’s true…

…the two who seem out of place are valentin and schoeneweis…valentin is a non-roster invitee, and schoeneweis, despite his strong finish last season, spent the better part of the year being booed
