As for Phillips, his OPS has gone from .810 in 2011 to .750 in 2012 to .706 in 2013. He will be 33 next year. If you want to think that his hitting is going to imp;rove, then you REALLY are looking what "might" happen. BP is fading and if he is here all next year it will not end pretty.
As for his contrtact and moving him. Do you think the Angels would like to move Pujols and Hamilton? They just signed contracts.
No I don't think Phillips will "improve" but I think at his skill set for 2014 and even 2015 he is still worth what we are paying him, my issue is the other two years. I do "hope" that with a new manager and hitting approach they can maximize all of the talent Brandon has. I believe his Defense more then makes up for the declining numbers at the plate and believe defensivly he is the best in the NL at second and will live with whatever possible decline he has at the plate.
