Brandon Phillips Has Still Got It (Probably Because He Never Lost It)


Brandon Phillips isn’t everyone’s favorite flavor. I get that.

As a Cubs fan, I know I used to despise his every (frustratingly smooth) move at second base for the Reds. But now that he’s on the Braves, there’s a bit of breathing room between us, and I can finally appreciate the amount of style he brings to the field every single day.
