Phelps has had a great year at Scranton. He's young. He's developing. What does he need to do to ever get a chance? Get traded?
Listen: I'm not down on Cashman beating the bushes for talent. This guy Gordon has great numbers for Phily's Triple A team. But he's 33, a coverted outfielder. Obviously, when they pulled Phelps from Tuesday's start, they raised the kid's hopes. Will he ever believe them again?
And what about Hector Noesi?
Hate to say it, but it's a typical Yankee move from the 1980s: Disregard the numbers from your own organization and salivate over them when they involve players on other teams.
