Gave up Andrew McKirahan and Carlos Portuondo.  CIN is supposed to eat a large portion of the 14M owed to Phillips while we allow him to carry over his no trade rights and pay him an assignment bonus.

The Reds are sending over $13 million along with Phillips. That combined with what they're getting back makes it clear that they just wanted to get rid of him to free up 2B.

From a baseball perspective, I like the move. On a personal level, this is my wife's least favorite player (he's been antagonistic toward the Cards for many years), so this is a problem for me when I want to watch games.
