    Well, on that one there was a reason. Phillips was playing WAAAAY off the bag there. Cozart didn't think Brandon would get to the bag on time but as they got closer...confusion set in.

    I saw the replay a couple of times and never could tell if Zack actually touched 2nd though. One of those area-code outs I guess.

    SAN DIEGO — Brandon Phillips and Reds manager Dusty Baker had a long closed-door meeting before Friday’s game. The subject of those meetings is always confidential.

    But it’s clear that Phillips is willing to go back to the leadoff spot.

    “I’d love that,” Phillips said. “I just feel like I have more fun hitting leadoff. I feel can play my game all the way and go out and have a good year like I did last year.”

    The preseason plan was for Phillips to leadoff. But Scott Rolen’s injuries and struggles forced Phillips back into the cleanup.

    “I went into this offseason thinking I was going to be a leadoff man,” Phillips said. “I thought I’d be stealing more bases and doing the things I was doing the second half last year. I really thought that was going to happen. Things didn’t turn out that way.

    “You do what’s best for the team instead of what’s best for yourself.”
    Baker has thought about moving Phillips to No. 1 in lineup. The question? Who hits cleanup then?

    “I thought about it,” Baker said. “We might put Ludwick in that situation. Brandon’s moved more than anybody I’ve ever seen in any lineup I’ve had. I don’t think I’ve ever had a player with ability to bat cleanup one day and leadoff the next day.

    “It’s a finger-in-the-dike situation. It only became prevalent three days ago, the last two games in L.A. and the first one here. Brandon’s been our second most productive hitter with runners in scoring position. We’ve got to replace that, too.”

    why
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    What is wrong with the concentration on this team? This is Kip Wells.

    The team is acting like the all star break has already started. Just totally out of it.

    Stubbs strikes out looking. 0 for 30.

    Looked like a ball....but close enough to protect the plate.
