If you think this is a slight upgrade, we have no disagreement.
If you think this is a major upgrade, there's a disagreement.
Philliips has a .735 OPS, below .600 the last thirty days.
And what happens after Bruce is finished hitting? I guess the fans can take a long bathroom break because nobody very good will hit for the next couple of Reds innings.
