Overall, no. I was not a fan at all after a few weeks into the season and made more than my fair share of comments about his inabiltiy to get it done at the plate. He nor Perez could hold down a leadoff spot to save their lives and the natural train of thought was that these two guys should be a part of the top of the lineup.
When Phipps started hitting it was like somebody just hit a switch. I would love for him to speak on the overnight change in his success. What happened? Can he put a finger on it? I was concerned that he would have some issues moving to AAA but I am very happy to see that he hasn't missed a beat.
