Brandon Phillips’ T-shirt at a pregame press conference Monday read “Got Swag?” The flashy Reds second baseman can answer yes to his own question. He might lead the league in swag. That’s not a reference to the old definition of swag, an ornamental drapery or curtain. In this case, swag is short for swagger. Phillips, aka DatDudeBP on Twitter, has plenty of that, and he’ll need it for he and the Reds to achieve their goals in 2013.
