Brandon Phillips needs a couple days off

All I want is a couple days off. For him.Brandon Phillips, winner of the winningest smile award and second baseman to the stars, has been hitting like Royce Clayton ever since he hurt his wrist. I understand wanting to wait till they clinch the division to start giving guys days off, but BP might not actually be making that happen faster in this condition. Maybe a couple days off and a strict prohibition on Guitar Hero is in order.

    Dang. It hasn’t been pretty since that wrist injury. John Fay ran the numbers ( “Phillips hit .312 with a .354 on-base percentage in the month before the injury. He’s hitting .132 with a .203 on-base since.”
