"The kid deserves a 4-5 year deal at big big money and IDC if he gets it here, as long as it does not hinder the franchise"
I agree but that is not what bothers me about this whole thing. The communication between the Reds front office and Phillip is way off. The team has no problem in asking Phillips to represent them but they can't tell him what their plans are for him?
Who cares if Phillips is also marketing himself that is how you make the big money.
Well if that is how you make the big money then why aren't the rest of the ball players acting like BP? come on man.
I've said dozens of times, BP is a great player but i'm not much for coddling players myself. On another note, if some of you have such disdain for discussing BP then why on earth do you keep reading and posting about it?
And actually, it is or should be the agents job to deal with this stuff behind closed doors. BP don't need an agent if he is going to do all the talking. May as well negotiate the deal himself.
Did you read the entire post or did you see something that hurt your feelings and fire away?
He [Hurricanefan] is a sensitive fellow.
Who is coddling him?
"On another note, if some of you have such disdain for discussing BP then why on earth do you keep reading and posting about it?"
I guess I am not as disdain about it as you think I am. Just like you think you have to bad mouth him I feel I have to open your eyes that Phillips has not hurt this team one bit. He continues to do his share for this team without any disrespect to his teammates.
I guess Phillips think that he has to be heard and express what he thinks. Funny kind of like the people that think they need to be heard about the subject and express their opinions. What is the difference besides that Phillips has a bigger following?

They didn't file bankruptcy because they were broke. Chapter 11 isn't uncommon for large businesses to file during a sale. The buyer is more enticed to purchase once the filling is occurred.
Top 3 or best in baseball. I want what he is smoking. His recent comments alone make me want him gone..

Oh i don't know about that, his mouthing off caused quite a big fight and unnecessary suspensions. You do not need to open my eyes to anything. He is a pretty good baseball player but the rest i'll pass on.
There was a reason Cleveland let him go for a Klondyke bar....
I believe we are seeing it and have seen it.
LOL (Rolling eyes)
