I think there are a number of games of chicken going on right now...

Red Sox v. Phillies over Cliff Lee
Phillies v. Michael Young over his NTC

I suspect that calling up Asche was done, in part, to strongarm an aging Michael Young into accepting a deal elsewhere besides Texas. For a guy his age with only so many more playing days.... perhaps he reconsiders if he feels like he's a bench player instead of in a playoff race.
