Well, you know I'm happy to see Roberson up in the bigs finally. I bet he contributes when he gets the chance. I think that even as valuable as Rowand is, the Phils aren't going to miss a beat with Victorino - who may be almost as good defensively - and now Roberson in the picture.

I hope Roberson can be a quality pinch-hitter, pinch-runner type like Victorino was, until Victorino got suddenly cast as the starting CF. Hurry back Rowand, we all love you!

Wait a minute Mr. SchuBlues.

About two weeks ago I casually mentioned that Victorino was a decent 4th outfield option.

You suggested I was using controlled substances and said he would never be anything except a AAA/MLB tweener.

Now he's "almost as good defensivley" as Rowand. I swear you just make this stuff up as you go.

tell me about it !

Whoa, Trask, you got the wrong guy. Anyone will back me up on this. I'm the one who in fact went so far as to say Roberson might be a more productive player than Pat Burrell over a full major-league season. (And believe me, if anyone was cited for taking controlled substances, it was me for saying that!) I'm a big fan of his, and I thought he should been in the majors a long time ago.

Oh shoot, you're talking about Victorino, not Roberson...

Yeah.

Okay, well, I never was quite as high of Shaner, but at the same time I don't remember bashing him as you're claiming. He *is* good defensively, and I don't know how I ever could have said otherwise. As for him being more than a 'tweener', I think he's better than that and is obviously proving it. So it's possible you got the wrong guy in his case as well...I just don't think I ever had reason to be down on him. If you can dig up exactly what I said, I'd be curious.

Roberson better than Burrell . . . let's not get ahead of things. Hopefully Roberson can bring another useful bat off the bench. The Phils pinch-hitting has been woeful this year so far.

Dellucci is mistcast as a pinchhitter and Nunez, Gonzalez, and Fasano have given the Phils nothing off the bench.

Speaking of pinch-hitting. Cole Hamels had just about as much of a chance knocking in a run with the bases loaded in the top of the 6th as "No-Stick Nunez". Fricken Manuel.

Maybe Sanatana can play the utility IF spot and pinch hitter. Then they can cut Gonzo. I think he is running out of time to produce.
