Paul Daugherty of the Cincinnati Enquirer recently had an article on the future of Brandon Phillips as a member of the Reds. It was pointed out that Brandon has been the Reds regular second baseman for the past 11 years. He is scheduled to make $14 million this year.As you probably know, the Reds wanted to trade Phillips last year to the Washington Nationals. However, he turned it down because he said they were not going to offer him a long-term contract. He could do so because he is a 10 and 5-year player (10 years in the league and 5 years with the same team). This year the Reds wanted to trade him to Atlanta so he could finish his career near his home in Georgia. He turned that down, also.I agree with Mr. Daugherty in that Phillips is no longer a starting second baseman in the Reds plans for the future. He has had a great career with Cincinnati, but when you are rebuilding you cannot afford to play someone making this kind of money. When you have younger players with the same ability but only have to pay them a fraction of what you have to pay Phillips, it doesn’t make sense. Phillips was great, but his playing time is now limited.
