Welcome back, Andy!

Andy Phillips and his big bat

The Yankees have called up Andy Phillips and DFA'd Josh Phelps. Wow. It's the right thing to do, but I wasn't expecting them to do it. I guess their hand was forced by Minky's injury. Phelps is simply dreadful on defense. It was his bat they liked, but his defense is so bad his bat can't make up for it.

Phelps is a Rule 5 pick. He has to clear waivers, then be offered back to the Orioles for half of what the Yankees paid for him. I think the Orioles will take him back; they were pretty annoyed that the Yanks took him.

Andy is in the dugout tonight. He will be in the lineup tomorrow.

Welcome back, Andy. Nice to see you again.

This rocks. Now, if Kevin Thompson is named the starting RF'er tomorrow, I'm throwing a party.

It's cool just to look at the depth chart.
