The Phelps call-up had a very negative effect on OC. He was clearly pissed. Whether he should swallow his pride or not is another thread for another day, but Acta's already dealing with a frustrated clubhouse. No need to exacerbate things.Could be his way of trying to get OC to play better to justify more playing time.

Simple.If Hafner weren't hurt and Choo, Sizemore and Santana actually hitting on a regular basis, we could afford to have a no-stick all glove 3B out there. We don't necessarily need to bring in other guys who can hit, we need the hitters that we do have to right the ship. Management isn't going to sell the farm to bring in short-term replacements, so we need the guys we have to play better. Bottom line. The team we've got now is the team, for the most part, that we're going to sink or swim with. The cavalry ain't coming, unless someone thinks that bringing in the likes of a Casey Blake is considered the cavalry.The answer isn't in AAA either, and Cord Phelps shouldn't have been expected to come in and jump start an offense that has grown dormant, not in his first time around. That's a lot to ask of a kid seeing his first big-league action.
