The Cincinnati Reds could trade one of their best offensive players this offseason. Second baseman Brandon Phillips has been a key piece to the Reds and his value to the team cannot be overstated, but they may be trading him. The Reds may look into trading second baseman Brandon Phillips this offseason, according to Reds radio announcer Marty Brennaman on MLB Network via Mets Blog. Phillips has four-years, $50 million left on his contract. The 32-year old Phillips is a good player and would be a very good addition for any team. Phillips actually had a career best 103 RBI's this season, which beat out his previous career high of 98, so he hasn't shown any signs of declining. I personally wouldn't expect Phillips to be traded, but if a team made an offer to the Reds that they couldn't refuse, a deal could happen. In 12 years at the big league level, Phillips has hit .271 with 166 home runs and 704 RBI's. Follow Robert on Twitter @RobertMurrayMLB Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?

Goodbye Dusty Baker (My Thoughts on the Firing of the Reds Manager)

A door had closed. An era had officially...
