Re: The excellence of Brandon Phillips
An incredible trade by Krivsky when you think about what was given up. The thing that I admire the most about Phillips is that since the very beginning, he's always wanted to be with the Reds. He's continued echoing that, even when the team was bad. Truly loyal to Cincinnati.
Oh yeah, and he's been a very good player. Outside of his first year in Cincinnati, he's averaged around 4 wins every season since.
I was for the extension, though I wasn't sure about that last year, but you know what, if Phillips continues playing the way he has, it will easily be worth it.
