The Philadelphia Phillies had to turn to Jonathan Papelbon on back-to-back days because of back spasms Mike Adams experienced during batting practice yesterday.  Papelbon had pitched Saturday and would likely have been unavailable under normal circumstances yesterday.  He pitched in the eighth in the ninth, recording a five out save.

Let’s start looking at minor leaguers, NOW

As I watch the Sunday afternoon Game between the Phillies and Diamondbacks I can only imagine what a difference it could make to start bringing more position players up to the big club. We had to endure the 1st inning screw up by Eric Kratz when he was in a chase down to third base and held onto the ball to long, result the runner slid back to third and was safe.
