The numbers say it all. Freddy Garcia recorded five outs, gave up five runs on seven hits, four of which were doubles.

Garcia has now had three starts and they have all been stinkers. If the score holds up here, Garcia will be 0-2 with a 9.75.

Meanwhile, David Phelps, who entered Saturday in the third inning, has been lights out. Phelps had allowed one hit, a home run, in his first 8 1/3 innings.

Garcia, 35, has looked awful so here is our question before seeing what Phelps does today.

Would you drop Freddy from the rotation and put Phelps in?
