What's everyone's opinion on Phillips. I like the guy, he plays hard but I think we gave him a starting job prematurely. Yes he had an awesome April but the guy has had almost no success in the majors prior to then. His .269 May OPS just warrants an . I could see him blossoming into an Easley type (back when he was actually good in like 1997-1999), but I could also see him being a light hitting bench player. When Griffey returns does he deserve the starting job at 2B or does Freel? I personally think Freel and Phillips are solid players but both play best if they only start about 2/3 of the time.... Freel getting about 1/3 of the time at 2B and another 1/3 of the time filling in for EE and Griffey.
What do others think about him though? His average is now below .300.... it was at almost .370 not too long ago. How bad do you think it will have to get until Donofia gets more time from Freel in CF and Freel takes over 2B?
