Phillies add catcher Hoover

One the heels of a shutout loss, the Phillies have begun a major shakeup, summoning catcher Paul Hoover from Triple-A Lehigh Valley. Okay, it's not a major shake-up. It's a September callup of a 33-year-old veteran who batted .253 with 1 home run in 73 games this season. Just a routine move to add a third catcher for a month. But hey, it's news.
