    Brandon Phillips Takes a Swing at Adam Dunn?

    http://news.cincinnati.com/apps/pbcs...cincinnati.com

    Hes underrated, Phillips said. Its all about a guy getting a chance. He's a great teammate . . . Its good to have a guy in left field who can hit and catch the ball.

    I like Brandon Phillips a lot, but that's unnecessary, IMO.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    That's just a stupid thing to say in public. I don't know what Adam Dunn did to everyone in Cincinnati to deserve swipes like this from his former teammates and the people in the radio booth.

    I'm guessing this is a quote that sounds a lot worse on paper than it was meant to sound. I think he's more refferring to the fact that Nix is a very solid 2 way player more than it is a shot at Dunn. I don't see anything here, and I am far from a BP apologist.

    Why are we all up in arms about this? Because of the tone of how he said it?

    Since the day guys first reported to Sarasota, everyone from Dusty Baker to Walt Jocketty to Aaron Harang to David Weathers has talked about how they felt one of the club's big improvements was going to be outfield defense. Having guys get to more balls, fewer balls falling in for hits.

    Brandon Phillips is hardly the first person to say what he said.

    Someone needs to let it go and act like an adult.

    First Arroyo and now Brandon makes me think that Dunn wasn't the most popular person in the Reds clubhouse last season.

    I wasn't all up and arms about it, I actually thought it was kind of funny. I have no problem with somebody bringing some swag and attitude to the team. I'm not looking to win any popularity awards, just ballgames.

    This guy? Its just an ape Krono.




    Nothing new to see here. I don't think BP meant anything by the comment other than Nix is solid in the field as well as the bat. But even if he did... (i keed i keed)

    BP,would be alot more liked by the fans of Cincy if he would just keep his mouth shut which will never happen.

    BP isn't well liked by Reds fans? At this point there's no reason not to like Brandon Phillips. He took a shot at somebody who is no longer on the team. Big deal.

    Dumb thing to say, but not the first nor the worst for Phillips.

    I think we here are more upset by it than Dunn, who I have a feeling is laughing about it right now.

    My bad. When you put "JESUS" after the link and quote, I just took that to mean you were thinking "who the hell does this guy think he is."

    I totally agree about bringing the attitude and desire to win. Brandon's not the most popular guy on the team either, but you know he's there to win. On the flip side, Dunn was liked by a lot of guys as a person and got along with people, but you can tell guys like Phillips, Arroyo, etc. didn't have as much respect for him as a competitor when it came to wanting to win.

    The vast majority of Reds fans love Brandon Phillips. That's not even a debate.

    The main pockets of people who don't are those who get personally offended if a player doesn't subscribe to the Rosales doctrine of sprinting everywhere on a diamond or the people who can't get over the fact that he's an unabashed free swinger at the plate and will always have an OBP that's not to their liking.
