If true $12M a year is about right, $15M was too much.

It's great to see the team locking up the core but hope these deals don't hinder the team down the road.

so this would only make it a 5yr extension, no? Meaning the $72 million includes the $12 million he was getting paid this year.

Watching Brandon Phillips in Cleveland in 2003, I never envisioned him now averaging $12 million a year for the next six. Congrats BP

And BP turning into the player he's become with the Reds only proves yet again ... that God hates Cleveland and all of its sports fans

yes, and that makes the deal much better in my opinion. At first I thought it was a 6 yr extension.

So is it a 6 year extension kicking in next year or 6 years including this year as the rosenthal tweet points toward?

yea its basically a 5yr $60 million extension. Phillips will be a little over 36 when the deal expires.

Phillips: I cried about this. This is where I wanted to be [url="https://twitter.com/#!/search/%23reds"][s]#[/s][b]reds[/b][/url]


[url="https://twitter.com/#!/FOX19Brian"][b]Brian Giesenschlag[/b]‏[s]@[/s][b]FOX19Brian[/b][/url]

Phillips has hammy issue though. Dusty says he could miss 3-4 games.

Phillips: I just want to thank Walt and the Castellini family for giving me this opportunity to spend the rest of my career here. [url="https://twitter.com/#!/search/%23reds"][s]#[/s][b]reds[/b][/url]-
