I'm not convinced Phillips is a better option at SS, long term.
Knee-jerk reactions are what make teams lose.
I wish my feelings on Lopez were knee-jerk, but I've thought this about him since 2004. I was excited with getting Phillips b/c I felt that eventually it would allow us to explore the possibility of BP at SS and FL at 2B. Hopefully in the offseason we'll see some of that.
I'm not convinced Felipe makes that play 97 out of 100 times. I think his overall lack of range greatly increases his chances of repeating what we saw last night.
