And there's absolutely no reason not to have De Fratus up now. Durbin sucks. Stutes hasn't been great overall this season, but he has been on a roll lately. 13 Ks to 3 BBs in his last 13.2 innings (11 hits- 5 of which came in one inning).
But see that is their problem. It's time to let go. Honestly, this team should not be 16-20. They should be much worse. Utley, Lee, etc., are keeping them in things. The coaching staff is actively failing them. Just give these guys a chance with someone new at the helm. There are so many things I would do before trading away the franchise guys. Firing the manager and bringing up some young guys would be a good start.
