What folks are saying about Phillips extension

"I don't think it's a terrible deal for the Reds. Phillips is a good player who's durable and a fan favorite with a big personality. It does create an impetus to win now, before the Votto and Phillips deals potentially become a financial albatross. Hey, if they win now or next year, they can worry about 2016 in 2016." -David Schoenfield of ESPN.com's...

Simon's walk-off wild pitch costs Reds the opener

Ludwick's two-RBI single tied it in the ninth. The offense once again stalled for the Cincinnati Reds (3-4), as they scored no runs until the ninth inning, though those runs did extend the game. Gio Gonzalez outpitched Mat Latos, limiting Cincinnati to just two hits while striking out seven Reds in seven innings. Latos made his second start for the Reds, but came up...

Phillips' contract ensures he'll retire with Reds

CINCINNATI -- Brandon Phillips is a man never at a loss for words -- ask him for a drink of water and he gives you Niagara Falls. Brandon Phillips is a man who displays nothing but positive emotions with a smile as broad as the Caribbean Sea. Speechless? Tears? Doesn't happen in a decade of leap years when Brandon's in the house. That moment arrived Tuesday when Brandon...

Game 7: Reds 2, Nationals 3

The Cincinnati Reds had their second afternoon game in a row today, and like yesterday, it was a one-run game. Unfortunately, this time it went against the Reds, who fell to 3-4. Mat Latos made his second start for Cincinnati and again had trouble in the 5th. This time, he made it through 5 innings and gave up only 2 runs. However, his pitch count was almost at 100, so he was done...

The right side of the infield is set for some time

A week after locking up Joey Votto for the longest guaranteed contract in the majors.  The Reds and Brandon Phillips have agreed on a 6 year 72.5 million dollar deal. This 6 year extension will run through the 2017 season. This makes our poll on the right side of the page a little mute, but this is great news for the Reds.

Reds Rapid Fire: Phillips Cashes In Too

Here are some quick notes on the Cincinnati Reds, who are off to a 3-4 start to the season. * It was great to see the team sign Brandon Phillips to a 5-year, $60 million extension (6-years, $72.5 million counting the $12.5 million Phillips is making this year) right on the heels of the huge Joey Votto deal. I honestly thought the team would let Phillips walk after this season, but...

Reds sign Brandon Phillips to six-year $72.5 million contract extension

Brandon Phillips will be a Cincinnati Red for life. No, Cincinnati’s ownership group has not lost their minds. They’re simply doing what championship caliber organizations do day in and day out. And we applaud them for taking one of the most important steps there is to keeping the band together for a good long while. I often sat back and thought about what I was going to write...

The Reds Strike Again: The Phillips Extension

It has been a good week to be a second baseman. On the heels of Ian Kinsler‘s big extension with the Rangers, Brandon Phillips received a roughly similar six-year, $72.5 million deal from the Cincinnati Reds. Unlike Kinsler’s five-year contract, which begins after this season, Phillips’ new contract begins this year. Does this make sense for the team given the Reds current...

Reds avoid Cardinals sweep

[Box Score] [Cincinnati.com] I didn’t get to see the first business day special of the year, because I was doing business. The Reds avoided getting swept by their division rivals after getting in a 3-0 hole thanks to a Jon Jay home run off Johnny Cueto. Cueto didn’t have his best stuff it seemed, but he kept the Reds in the game over the course of five toughly contested innings...
