Re: BP - flash and substance
Funny how people on this board whine about Phillips' play. Even with a sub par July the guy still kept his avg close to .290 through the first week of AUGUST!! Not May, Not the 1st week of June, but AUGUST!!! Guess what folks. Sometimes big leaguers have bad stretches.... I know that may seem shocking but even Pete Rose and Tony Gwynn had some bad times.
It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...
