Sure, Phillips hit worse as the season went along, but if he carried his batting slump out to 2b I sure didn't see it. Jocketty will have to be blown away to part with BP; I think at this point I'd rate moving Brandon over to SS as more likely than moving him to another ballclub
Either scenario < 10%
I agree I don't think it was definitive and too much stock is put into it. However which ever way that it falls I doubt this off-season is the right time to do it if it's inevitably going to be done. Combine the injury with the un-exciting type #'s he put up compared to last season and it makes for a less than stellar return.
