For the Phillies, in the midst of a lost season, is this a case of taking a low risk flier on someone and if it doesn't pan out he'll be DFA'd again?

That's a great point. I wouldn't be surprised if they're hoping he goes on a hot streak so they can then trade him to a contender, maybe as a bonus player in a Cliff Lee trade.

I think that's a fair summation. The only weirdness (for me, at least) is his role so far, not that he has a role. Even then his spot in the lineup, as I tried to stress, is a fairly minor concern.

There are more than a few whispers that George Kottaras is NOT a good guy - bad in the clubhouse, other players don't like him, rude to strangers, embarrasses those with him, an overall bad representative or ambassador for the team he plays for, you name it. Hence he wears out his welcome with new teams quickly. Most journeyman types wind up with the same team more than once; notice this has never happened with Kottaras.
