Phillips Named to Sporting News All Star Team

Cincinnati, OH (FOX19) - Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips wants to be paid like one of the best second basemen in baseball and at least one publication places Phillips in that select company.  The Sporting News named Phillips its National League All Star second baseman.

He's joined on the All Star infield by first baseman Prince Fielder, shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and third baseman Aramis Ramirez.

Phillips has a club option with the Reds for the 2012 season but is lobbying for a long term extension.
