Your browser does not support iframes. In case you missed it, Brandon Phillips put his spectacular defensive skills on full display Wednesday afternoon at Wrigley Field. He didn't waste any time at all to do so, either. Seen here is the three-time Gold Glove second basemen flashing some serious leather at the expense of Cubs leadoff hitter David DeJesus. Phillips essentially robbed DeJesus of a base hit when he ranged to his left and made a great diving snag on a ball that appeared to be heading into the outfield. Phillips then bounced to his feet and threw out the runner just in the nick of time to record the out. I don't care what anyone else says. Phillips is far and away the best defensive second basemen in Major League Baseball right now. Anyone who honestly thinks otherwise has obviously not seen Phillips play defense on a regular basis. The guy can simply pick it.
