Dobbs on DL, Cairo Returns

The Phillies placed Greg Dobbs on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right calf. They selected the contract of Miguel Cairo to take his place.

Dobbs strained his calf in Friday’s loss to the Mets. It sounded yesterday like the injury was not serious, but apparently Dobbs’ diagnosis changed. Dobbs declined comment. Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said this morning that Dobbs said he has had the injury off and on since last season. He also said Dobbs might get medical testing tomorrow in Philadelphia.

Lakewood. Any bars nearby?

Losing Dobbs is terrible, especially since Stairs in such a funk. Who would’ve ever thought that we’d need a LHB off the bench?

Stairs is the personification of the term ” old pro”. He’ll be fine as the main Lefty PH off the Bench. In addition, the Phils can play Francisco in LF and get better speed, better defense and gives the Phils a good lefty off the Bench as Ibanez will sit.
Dobbs loss , NOT a big deal, at THIS point.

dolfanman, are you aware that Matt Stairs hasn’t had a hit since July 11th? Hardly the guy I want as the main lefty off the bench. ‘old pro’, indeed.
