Links: Phillips, Winter Meetings & More


* The Reds and Brandon Phillips continue to negotiate a contract extension that will keep him in Cincinnati for a long time. In order for an accord to be struck, Phillips needs to compromise a bit more, writes Chris Roling of the Bleacher Report. LINK.

* Despite speculation the team is actively pursuing Atlanta's Jair Jurrjens, a source close to the Reds told MLB.com that's not the case. LINK.

* Mark Sheldon does his best in recapping what the Reds accomplished during the Winter Meetings in Dallas these past several days (there's not much to talk about quite frankly). LINK.

* In an article published on STLtoday.com earlier this week, columnist Rick Hummel sits down with Dusty Baker to discuss Tony La Russa's retirement announcement. LINK.

* As I'm sure we've all heard by now, Albert Pujols is now a member of the Los Angeles Angels after inking a 10yr/$254mil contract on Thursday. The move by Pujols is great news for the Reds, as it undoubtedly increases the team's chances of winning back the division crown in 2012.

* John Fay of Cincinnati.com gives his take on what two moves Cincinnati needs to make in order to make them division favorites heading into next year. LINK.
