Asked if it would be a good or bad day for MLB if the suspensions become reality, Phillips said, "It's going to be a good day for me because my name is not on the list. No.2, it's going to be a bad day for the guys who could get kicked out of baseball and for all those guys who are sitting in their houses right now saying, "Dang, I could still be playing if not for that.'
Phillips, the former Indians' second baseman, continued.
"The other bad thing is for the guys who might get suspended, they are going to hurt their teams," he said. "They could be the superstars on their teams and the next thing you know they could miss 50 to 100 games. That's going to be a bad thing."
