Phillips is hot

From Rob Butcher:

RED HOT: Brandon Phillips has at least 2 hits in each of his last 5g (3, 2, 2, 2, 2; 11-20, .550), the longest multi-hit streak of his career and the longest by a Reds batter since Sean Casey put together 5 straight multi-hit games from 8/8-8/14, 2005...Phillips has multi-hit efforts in 6 of his last 8 apps (16-35, .457) and in 9 of his last 12 apps (23-53, .434)...Todd Walker was the last Reds batter to produce 6 consecutive multi-hit games (9/4-9/10, 2002).

Far and away the best ballplayer on the team.

Phillips is essentially Pokey Reese with power. His OBP is .329. He needs to work on that in the coming years to be an elite player.

Twice during yesterday's games I could hear Phillips yelling F***! when he missed his pitch. Bad form.

When the crowd is as small as it was yesterday, you tend to hear that kind of stuff.

Bad form? Perhaps. But at least he cared.

Compare with Adam Dunn.

Phillips only yelled F--- twice!? I must have yelled it 152 times yesterday!

Yes, due to bad form.

Phillips and Utley are the two best second basemen in the National League. Glad one of them is in Cincinnati!

I'll tell you what, if Phillips keeps up this hitting, he could have an outside chance of collecting 200 hits.

I agree with anon 2:43, let's hope that Brandon continues to develop and improve his game. He has shown us some great defense and some timely hitting. He could be an elite player.
