You don't think that the fact De Fratus has been god awful and has a 13.5% BB-rate will have any bearing on the Phillies' decision? I know without Papelbon and Adams they don't have much left, but I don't want to take my chances having my ERA/WHIP Marmolled while chasing a couple saves. Bastardo has been pretty bad too but he has a history of at least being decent, and doesn't have a big platoon split; he's equally effective vs L and R.
