Re: Home Grown Team
A guy like Phillips obviously isn't home grown, and even though your average Reds fan probably doesn't realize he played for Cleveland at one point, he's a guy I sort of consider a home "grown up" guy as in most of his significant development in the majors was done here.
I mean, how is he significantly different in that regard from Mike Leake? Mike was obviously drafted by the Reds, but has spent little time actually developing thru the minors. One could argue he was developed for the bigs by Arizona St prior to getting drafted by the Reds.
