|Brandon Phillips mum to Cincinnati media |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(3/7/14) Reds veteran Brandon Phillips has cut off communications with Cincinnati beat writers for what he perceives as a negative analysis in regard to his 2013 season.
"I don't have anything to say to those cats," he told MLB.com. "They know that the deal is. They just talk about how I was falling off and declining. How the [expletive] am I declining? I had 100 ... ribbies last year. And I did that with one ... hand. And I won a Gold Glove? So how the [expletive] am I declining? Come on, man."
Phillips indeed remained productive last year despite a .263 batting average that tied his lowest since he arrived in Cincinnati in 2006. His 103 RBI was a career-high.

(12/11/13) The Yankees have turned down a trade offer of Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips for left fielder Brett Gardner, CBSSports.com baseball insider Jon Heyman reports.
The Yankees do have some interest in Phillips but are unwilling to move Gardner in a potential deal with the Reds, who have interest in trading the second baseman.
|Reds less inclined to trade Brandon Phillips |
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(12/4/13) According to FOXSports.com, the Reds are not likely to trade second baseman Brandon Phillips this offseason. Earlier reports indicated the Reds were eager to deal Phillips and that he could be with another team by the end of the Winter Meetings, but they have not been actively looking to trade him.
Phillips still has four years and $50 million left on a six-year, $72.5 million contract.
|A career-high RBI total disguised what was actually a significant decline for Brandon Phillips in 2013. Most notable was the drop in slugging percentage to an Erick Aybar-like .396, but his batting average and on-base percentage were both his lowest in eight seasons with the Reds. He also stopped being so aggressive on the base paths, finishing with five steals after averaging 21.4 in his previous seven seasons. For a 32-year-old middle infielder who has always relied more on athleticism than finesse, it's all pretty much par for the course, yet some Fantasy owners will assume Phillips is as productive as ever because of his 103 RBI. News flash: He had two of the game's best on-base guys in front of him in Joey Votto and Shin-Soo Choo. Maybe Choo's departure changes everything. Maybe Phillips no longer bats cleanup under a new manager. Maybe his decline continues, reducing him to more of a singles and doubles hitter. One way or another, those RBI figure to go elsewhere, leaving behind what looks an awful lot like Neil Walker. You could do worse than Phillips at second base, of course, but he's more of a middle-round fallback option these days.
