Phillips out, no break

Brandon Phillips left Sunday's game after being hit on the left hand by a Kevin Millwood pitch. Phillips ran the bases. But left the game an inning later. His hand was x-rayed. The x-rays were negative. He's day-to-day.

I know the wisdom out there is to trade Dunn, but I guess I don't get it. I would wait until closer to the deadline and see if Dunn is truly starting to 'get it' and hit for average.

You trade for a big time HR hitter with a batting average over .270 not trade away. The only position you would trade for with a guy like Dunn is a #1 starter or a #2 starter and a closer/starting position player. Name one team that could afford that... that is why the trade will not happen until later in July. It is too early for a big trade like that.

It doesn't matter who they trade, or who they don't. Jerry Narron, is the worst manager I've ever saw, and he will continue to be in love with David Weathers, and Mike Stanton, and continue to allow them to blow games. Bob Boone moves like batting Dunn 2nd, and keeping Encarnicion at 3b. Cleaning house starts with the Manager who has no business being in baseball to begin with.

Anonymous #1, I'm sure after six years all of the sudden Dunn is going to " get it" and learn how to hit for average. And he'll always be a truly lazy defensive player.
