    Re: Andy Phillips to be called up

    I don't mind the Josh Phelps DFA.. but I would rather it have been done after the interleague play than before it. We need the pinch hitters

    although I'm getting sick of all the Phelps and Phillips running around, I keep confusing them.....

    Phelps had some big hits too

    I know we don't need another big bat like Phelps, but at least in the games I saw he did well. Sure he almost killed some guys at 1B but you can't have everything

    When did he have "big hits?" I recall perhaps one occasion, where as every other game he was a GIDP machine.

    Re: Andy Phillips to be called up

    Welcome back, Andy Phillips.

    Ultimately Josh Phelps did not fit on the team. We have a pressing need for a 1st baseman, and that he is not. It's one thing to say we have a weak bench, but if you examine Phelps, where was he supposed to fit in besides the occassional PH for Miguel Cairo?

    Last season Phillips did the following:

    April (26 AB): .154/.214/.269
    May (36 AB): .306/.333/.389
    June (69 AB): .333/.347/.623
    July (91 AB): .165/.208/.275

    He only got 19 AB the rest of 2006.

    Rookie Season: 110 G, 246 AB, 7 HR, 29 RBI, .240/.281/.394

    Re: Andy Phillips to be called up

    I like Andy, he is not a long-term answer at first by any means but I think he is a better option than both Phelps and Cairo.

    If Andy got to play everyday he could be a good 1st baseman

    Re: Andy Phillips to be called up

    As a short-term stopgap while Cashman works the phones, this is fine. Phillips gives you most of the "benefits," such as they are, of Cairo's D and Phelps' O, while only taking up one roster spot.

    I'm a little surprised Phelps got the ax first instead of Basak, but ultimately they're probably both gone soon.

    Re: Andy Phillips to be called up

    Anybody know if he learned to hit a breaking ball yet? I don't think I can stomach another platinum sombrero.

    I hope he can hold the fort down for now...at least he can play D unlike Phelps.

    Re: Andy Phillips to be called up

    Too bad. I had high hopes for Phelps, I was thinking he could put up at least a .280/.350/.450 line.
