Brandon Phillips needs to take more walks even if Adam Dunn had never existed. Your last line sums it up perfectly. One does not have to do with the other.
Well for the most part that is pretty true but I have a feeling there is a couple of folks who wish him gone simply for the reason I mentioned. If not great. But I just don't see the logic in dealing away a guy who is so close to being an outstanding all around player with a more than reasonable contract through his prime years. Not wise at all IMO
