    Please no, I have never been a fan of this guy. I know he will be in AAA but when he gets called up in September there will be no upside. The Phillies should at least explore with players such as Randy Flores, Alfredo Aceves, or J.D. Martin on minor league deals.

    I prefer Chad Durbin. Much more flexibility with him.
