Neither team is looking to upgrade their middle infield. The Ms recently bought out both Yuni and Lopez thru 2012 signaling they have made a long term commitment to their doubleplay combination by fixing their cost. Besides they desparately need pitching.
The least of the Angels problems are Kendrick and Cabrera though I'm sure they'd be happy to trade E. Santana for Phillips.
The Phillies might have one of the best ss-2b combos in the game especially offensively.
I don't see any of these teams giving up quality pitching for Phillips.
While I'm not nearly as high on Phillips' defense as some others are, I think the Reds should ride him during his cheap years.
