Re: Nice to see Phillips wave to the camera
I knew there'd be a Dunn reference somewhere in this thread.
Phillips isn't even in the same stratosphere as Adam Dunn. Phillips has had an OPS above .800 once in his career - ONCE. His career OPS is .739. Dunn has a .901 OPS for his entire career.
Dunn may have been a laid back guy but his offensive numbers were always there at the end of the day. He is/was one of the most misunderstood and underappreciated Reds players of all time.
There are long periods of time where Brandon Phillips is an offensive black hole for the team - if he's not slugging then he's not doing anything, he brings absolutely no OBP skills to the table. At least with Dunn, you knew his OBP wasn't going anywhere even if he was swinging like crap.
