All of us Reds fans believe that Brandon Phillips is a great second basemen defensively. It's time that we start voicing our opinion that he deserves the Gold Glove this year. Here are some stats for all of you to chew down on.
Games: 111 (T-2nd)
Innings Played: 972.2 (2nd)
Total Chances: 559 (1st)
Putouts: 240 (1st)
Assists: 313 (2nd)
Errors: 6 (T-6th best *only including players with 50+ games)
Double Plays Fielded: 86 (1st)

I think Brandon Phillips needs to be a serious consideration for the Gold Glove recipient for NL 2B in 2007.
