    Congrats to Phillips. I didn't think this was his best defensive year, but he's been amazing defensively over a period of several seasons.

    McCarver says Brandon is the best defensive second baseman he's seen. It's that kind of praise that carries over to win awards.

    If your reaction to a guy from the team you nominally root for winning an award is to grouse, you're doing it wrong.

    Re: Brandon Phillips wins gold glove for 2013

    BP saying all the right things:

    “Wow, hard work pays off. It’s an honor to have the NL managers and coaches select me to join this elite group of the league’s best defenders. If it weren’t for my Reds coaches, staff and teammates, especially Zack Cozart, for sticking with me even though I wasn’t 100 percent toward the end of the season, this wouldn’t have happened,” Phillips said. “I take pride in my defense and try to go out there to make the pitching staff feel comfortable while they’re on the mound. I like being the pitcher’s best friend. People overlook defense these days. Offense sells tickets, but defense wins championships. My family and I are happy to win this award again, and this one belongs to my city, Cincinnati.”

    In all honesty, Barney probably should have won it, but Phillips should be no lower than #2.

    I don't think cherry picking 3 stats is really representative of his defensive presence.

    That could help the ol trade value.


    Congrats BP!
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Re: Brandon Phillips wins gold glove for 2013

    I think I like his answer even more than his defense this year.

    I think his range really declined the last 80-100 games of the season but I'm ok with him winning this year. It was him or Barney.

    That's really the key. Phillips is consistently elite with the glove.

    I'm surprised they didn't give it to Barney. It's really hard to bend in that purple dinosaur suit.
