    Personal hatred b/c I think Brandon Phillips is the most exciting Red to watch, and sometimes the only reason I want to watch the Reds just to see what kind of defensive gem he can make?

    Or is it personal hatred b/c I think Brandon Phillips is an out-making machine?

    Which is it?

    I'm glad Brandon Phillips plays for the Reds, and he's an exciting player. I just wish he contributed more offensively at times.

    So I guess that's personal hatred?

    He could stand to get on base more, no question. However, in 2 of the past 3 seasons, he's had a league-average OBP for his position. I'd reserve the "out-making machine" comments for the people that best deserve it (Taveras, etc.)

    As far as Dunn is concerned, he said several times he didn't really want to move to 1B and that he was not comfortable there. Arizona was new for him, so I'm sure he did not feel like he had been there long enough to justify telling them he didn't want to play that position.
