Report: Phillips gets long-term deal

The DDN’s Hal McCoy is reporting that Brandon Phillips and the Reds have avoided arbitration and agreed in principle to a long-term deal, according to a source close to the negotiations.

Terms and length of the deal were not available, but an arbitration hearing has been canceled.

Phillips was asking for a one-year contract worth $4.5 million; the Reds were offering a one-year, $2.7 million deal.

I would guess everyone will be in agreement that this is a good thing and Phillips is very deserving of whatever money he’s getting.

    Fantastic. BP can really be the face of the Reds for years to come. I think he really ushers in the type of star power that young kids today can really latch on to – someone to look up to, he’s charisma, and he’s a great ballplayer. Let’s hope things keep going this way.
