Brandon Phillips is one cool customer. That's one reason why he's not sweating Sunday's announcement of the NL All-Star team.
The Reds second baseman can make a legitimate case for All-Star inclusion. He was batting .310 with 7 home runs and 44 RBI and 15-for-15 in stolen bases entering tonight's action.
“I’ll worry about it when I find out if I’m going or not going," Phillips said of his All-Star hopes. "Right now, I‘m just trying to win and have a good season. I’m just playing baseball. I always have fun. I never worry about things I can’t control.”
The All-Star selections for both leagues will be made public on Sunday at 7 p.m.
UPDATE: Phillips tied a career-high with four hits tonight.
