As I sit here and watch Baseball Tonight, I'm wondering if anyone else saw it last night when Kruk was yelling at Philips that it made no sense at all that the Tribe was sending down their "best pitcher right now". He went even further to say that it would be hard as a player to take the field with lesser pitchers taking the mound.
Not surprisingly, Philips justified the move by saying you have to go with the guys that have a proven track record even if they aren't performing right now. Not once did this former GM mention minor league options as the reason. How did this guy have a job?
