    A few interesting things from Zips projections

    They have 3 of our top 4 players being guys added this year via ERA / OPS +
    Votto 148, Marshall 147, Madson 132, Latos 119
    Next in line
    Bruce 116, Bray 116, Massett 111, Cueto 110.

    Brandon Phillips projection v Henry Rodriguez
    R 2B 31 .279 .331 .436 OPS+ 104
    B 2B 22 .279 .315 .393 OPS+ 89

    If these projections held - trading Phillips for prospects / promoting Rodriguez and signing Oswalt would save money, gain prospects and add wins.

    Needs some AB's above AA ball to even consider.

    That's part of why I was so suprised by the high projections

    I've always thought signing Brandon Phillips long term was bat sh*t crazy

    I think a contract for phillips for 3 years with two club options after that would be a good deal for the reds as well as brandon but those stats i question. I see projections as having a very slim chance of actually happening

    You just cannot overpay for Brandon Phillips, he's not ever approached his 30/30 Days and this team just simply can't pay him the Dan Uggla type Money he is seeking...

    I say Trade him for a younger version and more pitching... He's no Ian Kinsler.

    Personally i think kinsler has always been over rated. Never has he hit .300, he's hit with power but doesnt have the speed. I think phillips is the best guy at 2nd in the nl and 3rd best in baseball behind cano and pedoria. If they could get the ackley i'd take it though.
