Re: Yankees Searching for Starting Pitcher
I agree that Phillips will be overpaid in a couple years for a team like the Reds. However, thats what I think the problem with baseball is. There aren't a lot of 2nd basemen that are better than him, but they're going to trade him for players that aren't as good, because other teams are willing to pay him that with no salary cap. They can't afford to keep a player like him, and fill other areas, while some teams could. I really like Phillips a lot, and don't want him to be traded, but at the same time, realize they practically have no shot at winning paying him that kind of money.
