    Steve Phillips' All Web Gem Team... 2nd base... Brandon Phillips

    Phillips is a boob... but it is still very cool seeing B.Phil get some much-deserved recognition and props for his spectacular defensive wizardry at 2nd base this season.

    yep, Phillips is one of those few players in baseball that are just a thrill to watch.

    Hopefully the fine folks at Rawlings agree (I think they're the ones who do the Gold Gloves)

    IIRC, Rawlings sponsors the award but they do not have any direct say-so in who wins the awards.

    I forget. Is it the writers or the coaches that choose that one?
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    Something I saw midseason didn't even have Phillips in the Top 5 defensively at 2B in the NL. It was ridiculous, they even had Freddy Sanchez ahead of him!
