    It’s the Yankees 14th game of the 2006 season, and Andy Phillips gets his first start of the year at 1B this afternoon.

    At this rate, he would get less than 12 starts at 1B for the year.

    The Yankees must feel that this kid cannot play at the major league level. Maybe they’re right? But, if so, do the player a favor and just cut him. In fact, do yourself a favor and cut him – then again, that might happen when Pena is ready.

    So, for the Andy Phillips fans out there, take a picture today. It could be the last time that we see him start in the field for the Yankees.

      I think the way they’re handling Phillips stinks. Cairo? C’mon…

      .500 OBP for the day. Not bad. Now if Andy got to see more ML pitching, he might develop a better eye and catch up to some of those pitches.

      ========================
      Or he may not. Either way, play the guy enough to find out. Otherwise, why was he put on the roster to begin with?
