Does Phillips have a shot?

I don't know what it is, but for some reason I'm starting to get the feeling that management may actually be thinking about keeping BP; this despite his recent history and that fact that Vazquez has a guaranteed MLB contract.  

I realize Vazquez hits left handed, has the better track record of semi-tolerable OBP stats, etc.  I guess I agree that he's the better backup; but I wonder if he's the better option if pressed into action for any extended period of time?  I don't know if management would re-think that the marginal sunk cost of losing Vazquez is worth keeping BP around or not.

Again, nothing at all to base this on.  They'll probably deal BP for a PTBNL tomorrow.
