PHILLIPS COST THE REDS A WIN?
DID BRANDON PHILLIPS COST
THE REDS A WIN?
From John Fays
Brandon Phillips’ lack of hustle on the ball off the wall
last night was addressed. Phillips ended up with a double, instead of a
triple, likely costing the Reds a run.
“He’s been talked to about this,” Dusty Baker said. “We’ve talked to Brandon
“I guess he’s better than he used to be. We’re trying to get him to the
point where he can be a big difference maker every day. He certainly has the
skill and ability.”
Is it hard for Baker to watch?
“What’s tough as a manager is when you’ve got an A student who’s getting
Bs,” Baker said.
I tried to talk to Phillips. He did not want to talk about it last night.
He did give
me one quote. However, I can’t use it here.
