Tribe and Belliard

ESPN has a good story on how Ronnie Belliard went from just some guy to getting his $4 million option picked up for next season.

The Indians didn’t expect Belliard to develop into one of the league’s premier middle infielders when they signed the chunky free agent in December 2003. They figured he was a temporary fix at the position while Brandon Phillips developed in the minors or until they found someone else.

Does anyone care about Brandon Phillips anymore? Where is he? Does anyone think we’ll see him play next year?
