As it stands now, Brandon Phillips is on pace for 31 homeruns and 33 stolen bases. Can he become the first Red to go 30/30 since Barry Larkin did it in 1995? I believe he has a solid chance to accomplish the 30/30 feat if he can remain healthy. There is only one thing holding Brandon Phillips back from becoming a big-time star in this league, and that one thing is a biggie - plate discipline. Phillips has the power, speed, hitting ability, and defense to be a star, however, his lack of plate discipline is keeping him from becoming a star. If, and that's a big if, he can just improve a little and start walking, oh, say, 60 times a year as opposed to the 35 he had last year (which is also around the pace he is on this season), then he could really take off and become a special player. Hopefully he recognizes this and is working to improve upon it. He is a good hitter right now, but I would love to see him take a step forward and become a great hitter.
