    Reds Acquire Brandon Phillips

    For PTBNL or cash, per Reds press notes. He'll wear #4 and join the team tomorrow. Matt Kata was DFA'd, a roster move for the 25 man will be announced tomorrow.

    He does have some upside. I believe his defense has always been pretty good, but his bat needs to come around, and quickly.

    Giggity.

    Actually, I'd like to see what Brandon Phillips could do in a full-time stint as the Reds 2B. He's a few years past the Barry Larkin comparisons, but he has tools, he'd improve the middle infield defense and the Reds have the lineup to accomodate his "iffy" stick. This is a player who could thrive with a fresh start.

    Not a bad pickup for a PTBNL. Mr. Denorfia/Abad, I hope you enjoyed your time with the big squad.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I absolutely hate this move. Phillips just flat out stinks. There's just no point.

    Not sure how he will get any playing time. A former top prospect, and it doesn't seem like we gave up much, so its a low risk trade and hopefully he pans out.

    Where is this being reported? I've checked Marc's blog, the Reds website, the Indians website, the Enquirer and Post and ESPN and CNN/SI and don't see anything on it.

    Sorry, I see "per the Reds press notes" - interesting that it's not being reported yet.

    Yo. Kinda like this. He could be a guy who needs a change of scenery. He was awful d**n good at a young age in the minors -- then, the reputed "attitude issues." A new club can turn a guy around.

    There was got to be a trade of a middle infielder coming before long. I'm still guessing Freel for pitching.
