    And could have won the MVP every year from 72-76, as he was the best player in the league every one of those years.

    Phillips is a better defensive 2B than Joe was, Morgan played on better teams.

    True, and true. Morgan was still far greater (and won 5 straight gold gloves).

    Brandon Phillips is an overall, league average bat. Joe Morgan led the league in OPS and OPS+ twice, and was among the league leaders 6 times.

    Brandon Phillips has 7.3 career WAR. Joe Morgan has 12 WAR... in 1975 alone.

    Joe Morgan was a 1st ballot HOF'er, Brandon will probably not even make it to 5% on his first ballot and will be done.

    Earlier this year MLBTR posted that Brandon was interested in staying with the Reds and that he would be willing to take a contract similar to the Dan Uggla contract. That sounds fair to me

    BP will stay in Cincinnati, I have to believe. With Cordero's contract expiring we will have that extra (is it $12 million) to play with and Hernandez will probably be gone too. Why wouldn't you want to do whatever you could to resign him?
