Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?
Andy Phillips got off the interstate in style today. Pinch-hitting for the pitcher in the fifth inning, he smacked the second pitch he saw over the left field fence. Home run Andy!
It brought his batting average up to an even .200. He's been hitting better lately, though he's still not getting much playing time. While Joey Votto was on bereavement leave, Dusty was starting Javy Valentin at 1B against righties, and Andy against lefties. But Votto has returned, so Andy will probably be back to the occasional appearance as a pinch-hitter.
The Reds are just terrible now, and even worse, they've given up. I'd rather see the new kids and the bench guys like Andy play at this point, because the stars just don't care any more.
