Brandon Phillips is not down with OBP

So I guess this is why Brandon Phillips doesn’t go by @DatDudeOBP on Twitter. When asked if he was down with OBP, the Reds second baseman basically said, “No, you know me.” While talking to USA Today‘s Bob Nightengale, Phillips spoke out against the increased emphasis on a player’s on-base percentage among baseball writers and broadcasters. What’s amusing is who he...

Brandon Phillips Says On-Base Percentage Ruining Baseball

When I was a young(er) man playing in a competitive fast-pitch softball league some years ago, the team I played for had plenty of individual talent, but we were always prone to a series of mental and physical errors that would open the floodgates for a big inning for the opposition.

Anybody Want Dat Dude?

The Cincinnati Reds should absolutely trade Brandon Phillips this winter—if they can. Their pitching staff is barreling toward financial derailment and Phillips is set to earn nearly $40 million over the next three seasons. He'll be 36 when his current deal is up. He can still play a pretty gnarly second base, and his salar​y—although it will clearly hurt the Reds—might...

Brandon Phillips has skills -- both on the field, and off. Before Friday's game at Wrigley Field, the Reds second baseman showed off his photobombing skills on some unsuspecting fans. But not just any fans... Phillips leaped in the air to execute a hilarious photobomb on the goalie of the Team USA women's hockey team: Well done, @DatDudeBP.

WATCH: Umpire takes Brandon Phillips line drive to the nuts

Cincinnati Reds’ second baseman Brandon Phillips had just turned the popular saying, “having someone by the balls” into a real-life event. Against the Cleveland Indians, Phillips smacked a line drive straight to the privates of the umpire standing near second base. The “ump” tried to get away by jumping over the ball, but quickly found out his vertical wasn’t as high...
