To me, resigning Phillips or picking up his option is the equivalent of making a major trade in the offseason, and would be a major win for us.
Yup, I realize and agree, was summarizing the blog or whatever that was. I do hope they can keep Phillips, he is my fav on the team right now. I dont think Val wil ever be the answer, but excited for Hamilton in a year or so to see where he is, how he does.
