Yankees Turn Down For Gardner For Phillips Swap

The New York Yankees have reportedly turned down the Cincinnati Reds in a trade that would have sent lead off hitter and center fielder Brett Gardner to the Reds for second basemen Brandon Phillips. A big thank you goes out to the baseball gods for this one as I don't think the Yankees want or need any part of Dat Boy BP.

Phillips is 32 years old and has seen his numbers decline to a .261/.310/.396 with 18 home runs in 2013 in Great American Ball Park. The regression mixed in with the clubhouse issues and the attitude problems will probably keep the Yankees from making a serious run at Phillips.
