Updates on Phillips, Francisco
Not sure, yet, what to make of this tweet from @DatdudeBP himself, Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips:
“GoodMorning… Today is the day I find out my future w/ the @Reds! Either it’s going to be a GREAT day or BAD day… #FingersCrossed”
That was sent at 11:32 am Wednesday. Seems as if he is getting briefed by his agents on the negotiations for a multi-year contract. It could certainly be an in between day since negotiations have a way of progressing before getting to serious, serious talks. We’ll see…and I gather that Phillips will provide some sort of update later.
In other news, there were reports this morning that Reds 3B Juan Francisco was robbed at gunpoint by four assailants on Tuesday night in the Dominican Republic. Francisco was not harmed in the attack.
