I feel sorry for Phillips.

Are you kidding? Do you know anything about the guy? You're talking about the same Brandon Phillips that grew up loving Barry Larkin and dreaming of playing for the Reds. The same Brandon Phillips who wants to play his entire career with the Reds and has publicly stated that he'd like to be the captain. The same Brandon Phillips who said all of this while the Reds were losing.

While I'm sure he'd like to get to the playoffs, something tells me he's not griping about the situation he's in.

You mean the Brandon Phillips who was jealous of Josh Hamilton? You mean the Brandon Phillips that didn't like the attention over JR's chase for 600? You the BP that wants to be the "captain" and teammates shoot down that notion every time its mentioned?

What are you so certain he will be a Red next year? I see Jocketty completely rebuilding this team with new players with new attitudes. When he talked about untouchables, he did not mention Phillips.

I love what Phillips can do, but he really is a great glove 2B who should be batting 6th. He is not player you build your team around. He also has the most trade value of any Reds that is not untouchable.

phillips should be tagged the captain.. sorry but the people who had a problem with him being captain are the same people who cared more about their individual stats more than team wins.. griffey was special about this though.. he did alot of things, and people around him made his accomplishments great.. but every time i am around him, or around the team.. everyone else put him on a pedestal first..

I am telling you the presence of Adam dunn was alot more about individual stuff than team, and phillips as the captain.. and bruce, volquez, cueto, and votto all as future stars are pretty nice as an outlook..

i also had a conversation with B-Phill after he had hit the 30/30 club.. and his response was.. "Its just stats, you still have to play the game, I do it because I love playing, not for the stats"

which when told to ME as a non-player or media member, was pretty telling about how he didnt like the stuff going on with the team..

I mean he might like the light.. but usually people run when the light gets brightest.. Brandon is almost always the only one signing autographs before and after the game, and he continues to have a positive attitude about playing for a team and staying positive..

you run him off and you run off anything good we had going..

No im not kidding. R u?

So you think Brandon Phillips feels great about the management tearing the walls down around him. BP Is a great Player. My favorite on the team. So yeah i follow the guy pretty closely. Ive listened to both interviews after both trades on wlw. He sounded just fine when after we traded griffey. He actually sounded a bit held back on some negative comments he wanted to make about griffey and what he brought to the team.

But this past interview when after the DUNN trade. BP seemed shock. BP loved DUNN. Him and DUNN were great friends. He called DUNN the "Homerun King". BP didnt sound that happy about losing dunn.

Which is why im saying i feel sorry for him. If management drops the ball on replacing the two guys they just traded. BP is in for a Playoffless career. You think he's not worried about that.


What are you so certain he will be a Red next year? I see Jocketty completely rebuilding this team with new players with new attitudes. When he talked about untouchables, he did not mention Phillips.

Why would we drop BP?

If we drop BP. Over this offseason. I will have big ISSUES.
