Calling on Beck

Gotta wonder if Raul Valdes would have served up a game winning 2-run shot in the 12th the way BJ Rosenberg did.  I never thought I would say this, but that's a bad BJ!  Calling up a righty for the sake of having another right-hander pitcher in the bullpen despite already having a reliable lefty that was retiring batters from both sides of the plate is stupid.  The Phillies...
