You guys love shooting down anyone who yells that the emperor is naked. Well keep dressing this pig gentlemen because if this keeps up, we will not be playing ball deep in to October.
He's had the second worst regular positional player hitting in front of him most of the year...a .286 OBP....
Phillips: .256 .310 .396 .706
Votto: 317 .431 .504 .934
Phillips has 80 something RBI's because he has Choo and Votto hitting ahead of him. He isn't even league average in OPS....
Give it a rest and go worship Joe Carter.
