Damon isn't good in CF and he's even worse when banged up with injuries. Melky is better in every way defensively and I'm not a scout, but he has a plus arm from what I've seen.
Melky is better offensively than Phelps.
Yep. And so is Damon, so that's how you'd have to make the lineup.
Phelps will get his AB's as an occasional DH and to play 1B now and again.
I'd say Melky is a good pickup right now.
He was the guy to jumpstart NY's offense last year, and then when Matsui and Abreu took back over, they sputtered.
