Well, it's still early. But safe to say I was excited about him for little reason. I thought maybe the "light had come on" for him last year. Doesn't look that way.
Seems like Phipps struggled last year in April and heated up with the weather. Not sure if I recall correctly. Not ready to write him off as a fluke yet (though the BABIP and other numbers do shed doubt on the validity of 2011).
If he's still struggling on Memorial Day ...
