Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?
Homer Bailey has been sent down to Louisville, and infielder Pedro Lopez called up. Teams will often do this before the All-Star break if a starting pitcher has options. It lets them use the roster spot for someone else (since the pitcher won't play anyway in that time). And with Castro and Hamilton out, they needed an infielder.
In NY, Andy Phillips is starting at 1B today. They have him batting ninth. Even though he's hitting better than most of the rest of the lineup.
