ehhh.. I'd rather have had a playoff birth.
Maybe this will boost his value so we can get some valuable pieces to improve the team.
That's awesome for Brandon and for the Reds too. The Reds aren't exactly known for their stellar defense so for one of our players to actually win one of these awards is pretty exciting. Congrats to Brandon!
"I tried to play golf, but I found out I wasn't very good." -Joey Votto on his offseason hobby search
An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”
Now time to win one at SS
Congrats to Brandon. it's well deserved. add one for ss and another position and we're in business.
"Now that's a real shame when folks be throwin' away a perfectly good white boy like that."
Yea, but we've never won anything with him.
Just imagine how usefull he'd be if he worked the count, played SS, and hit leadoff... Oh well, congrats to the cleanup hitter.
Congrats to BP, a year too late if you ask me. It should be his second one.
A well deserved GG for BP. Congrats!
Congrats to BP
About time he gets some recognition. Now lets get some more fielders around him.
Reds 2010 NL Central Champs
Seriously... look at who else won this award. Nate Freaking McClouth! He's terrible... He was the worst CF in baseball as rated by the Fielding Bible. The gold glove is a joke... I'm glad BP won the award fromt he Fielding Bible, because the GG just doesn't carry much weight when people like Nate McClouth win. If McClouth didn't hit this season, he would've been nowhere on that list.
Congrats Brandon Phillips, hopefully many more to come!
Congrats to Brandon. We can complain all we want about his somewhat frustrating approach at the plate, but nobody can dispute he's an ace with the glove.
He deserved it last year and there were a few other guys deserving of it this year but a GG for Phillips is totally warranted.
And yes, as much as I love having Phillips behind Cincinnati pitching every game of the season, right now is the perfect time to flip Phillips. He could net something serious this offseason, right before he gets too expensive for the Reds' budget.
