I think it could be a solid pick up if we can get him and let him work on crap in the minors then im all for it. If we have to have him on the 25 man roster all year id rather not bother.
We are talking about trading Hopper or Freel for him. That opens him up a spot. Also, we did have second basemen in 2006- Tony Womack, Rich Aurilia and Ryan Freel... I remember going to a Reds game in April 2006 and thinking "wow, this phillips is talented but second base is Freel's postition"
