Well I don't know if this game or the last one was his first, but if it's this one, I don't think he's making a very good impression (certainly not on me).
T. Phelps was the starter for Florida and he had completed 3 scoreless innings with no walks and 3Ks (scattered 5 hits though).
Top of the 4th, Marlins batting with runners on first and second, 2 outs with the pitcher's spot coming up, score 3 to 0 Marlins. You'd think the pitcher would bat for himself since it's early in the game and he's pitching fine so far (especially with a 3 run lead against the Padres), but nope he brings in a pitch hitter. It doesn't seem quite so bad since the PH singled and scored another run, but I still think it's a pretty stupid move.
Would he do something stupid like that if Beckett was pitching? Or is it just because Phelps is a rookie? Opinions?
