That list is of "most Eccentric" which is a nice way of saying annoying.
He's the one who insulted a team and a fan base on a radio show, then showed up the other teams catcher at the beginning of a game starting a brawl. Yes, both teams were too blame but if Phillips would have first, not said anything inflamatory or second not came up to molina like they were old chums jus to get a rise out of him then the fight wouldn't have happened.
He is also the one who accused Neil walker of being a racist when Neil Walker's family practically prays to Roberto Clemente every night. Neil Walker is about the furthest thing from a racist.
Also, major networks aren't going to publish lists of the most annoying players. They will leave that to bloggers which is why it works fine for this. For analysis yeah its not that great, but for an article about annoying players? its just fine
What "ridiculous" things have been said by Phillips? I don't know if you're aware of this, but when Phillips called the Cardinals whiny babies, the entire NL Central fanbase stood up and applauded for Phillips saying what everyone knew to be true.
