Our good friends at GQ magazine inform us that Brandon Phillips is featured in a spring fashion shoot in their May issue, along with a Q&A.  The magazine is on newsstands today.

The picture below shows BP sporting approximately $1300 worth of fashion gear, but (and?) the interview has some interesting stuff to say about:

  • The 2012 NLDS:  “Still not over it.”  For some reason, he talks about failed bunting plays as something he wishes had gone differently.  I’m pretty sure there weren’t any such plays.
  • Twitter:  Chad Johnson suggested — quite accurately — that BP would be perfectly suited to the medium, and could use it to raise his national profile.
  • Plate Discipline:  Says he understands that he could be more selective, but he just loves swinging the bat.  It sounds better in his words.
  • Best Clubhouse Prank:  Involved terrifying an unnamed teammate into thinking the teammate’s feet had turned purple.  I like to think it was Adam Dunn.

The full fashion slideshow is here.  The full interview with BP is here.
