A mistake if you ask me.

I'm just gald he will stay a Red. It's not my money that's being spent and the Reds owner said he would be open to spending more money so I'm all for it.

Good idea to start locking guys up before they hit FA just think how bad the contract's will get once the new TV deal's start kicking in for team's like the Ranger's and i believe the Astro's are going to get one.

I wouldn't give him five years guaranteed. He would be 36 in his last year of the deal. While he is a good defensive 2B with power, he doesn't offer much else. He doesn't steal bases at a good rate and doesn't offer a good OBP but he is durable. Four years would be as high as I would go.

he hit .300 last year and he is a good team leader :shrug:


that being said, i'm really happy to see the Reds ownership finally starting to spend some of their money. and he also said that he'll get an all star game will be coming to Cincinnati. I feel like the ownership has turned it around and that they want to make the Reds a big market team. i know they are going to try to get a new tv contract which will raise the payroll. hopefully more fans attend games and spend money now, which will also increase payroll.

this would be a gross overpayment. i never liked Phillips, this deal might send the Reds into cap hell along with Votto's extension. They're Cincinatti, not New York..

That was the only time he has ever hit .300.

Not to mention he has a career OBP of .322 and a SLG of .434

Good signing by Cincinatti. Phillips is one of their best players. Great to see a relatively small market like Cincinatti able to keep their star players long-term.

It's an overpay, but not a gross overpay.

Keeps the Phillips/Molina feud alive for five more years for sure.

A mistake if you ask me.

5 years is a bit risky, but as long he doesn't fall off a cliff like Utley did, it should work out. His defense continues to be very good and his peripherals have not shown any sign of slowing down yet. Given the position, the first 3 years should be a steal, years 4 and 5 more of a ?

He hasn't signed yet and is rumored to want a 6th guaranteed year.

According to Jim Bowden of ESPN.com and MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM, the Reds are prepared to give Brandon Phillips a six-year, $72.5 million contract extension.
In fact, Bowden predicts that a deal will get done in the next 24 hours. If true, the total value will fall short of Ian Kinsler's five-year, $75 million extension with the Rangers. Phillips, who is nearly a year older than Kinsler, is currently due to hit free agency following the 2012 season.

Six years? Geez

Kinda Long He'd probably be on the decline in the latter part of the contract. But Happy that Players are getting locked up for a long period of time, so no FA for Los Doyers

Glad it wasn't us, not a good contract to a player who's value is based on his defense and will be in his mid 30's.

go back and look at his stats as a Red. he was never a good offensive player until he came to Cincinnati

I don't get why so many people here say this is bad contract. it's a good deal compared to a lot of other signings.

he loves Cincinnati, wants to play the rest of his career here, he's a good hitter, fielder, and a team leader. he's a good guy who gives back to the community. he's a gold glove second basemen, good speed, can make contact and has some pop in his bat. excellent signing imo.

Agreed. Bob said he would increase payroll and he is keeping his word. Shocks the hell out of me that Castelini isn't being cheap anymore.

Ok then, .331 OBP and .448 SLG. Not a big difference.

And people don't think it's a good signing because the players getting similar deals are better than Phillips is. Kinsler got 15 per compared to Phillips' 12 and Kinsler is younger and much better.

I understand as a hometown fan you like BP and are glad he's sticking around, but compared to other players and other contracts, this isn't as financially sound.
