Brandon Phillips didn’t play all weekend, and he doesn’t seem to be very happy about it:
All-Star second baseman Brandon Phillips is a gamer who hates sitting on the bench. Sunday, Phillips missed a third consecutive game because of a groin injury.
Phillips had hoped to be back by now.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Ask Dusty,Ã¢â‚¬Â Phillips said, declining further comment.
Okay, nothing to see here, move along. BP wanted to play, and Dusty has a long history of sitting guys out an extra day after they are ready to return. Phillips will be in the lineup tonight, and everything will be peachy keen again.
