If true, that's great news. It would be great to have both Schneider and Greene locked up heading into the season.
Not saying it's a bad thing, but did anyone here think they'd ever see the day that they'd be thrilled about a guy like Greene getting locked up to a pretty nice-sized contract?
And this is not knocking Greene, but praising him...he's done a hell of a job in becoming a guy we appreciate, as opposed to overlook.
If Lou is going out of his way saying he is very comfortable to say that he expects it to be done soon, I expect it sometime early next week.
I've read Lou quotes saying that he'd love to keep a guy, only to see that player walk away. I'm not knocking Lou for losing players...it happens, and the fans who tend to do it the most usually ignore the guys he kept. But I'm definitely in the "let me see it happen" camp before I start feeling too good about Schneider sticking around...it wouldn't surprise me that much to read something along the lines of "We've stopped talking for now, but we'll revisit this either during or after the season." And as long as MAF isn't re-upped in Pittsburgh, I'll still wonder about a possible Schneider going there and him coming here scenario after during the 2015 FA period. Hopefully that NEVER comes to pass.
