Brandon Phillips will definitely be back for 2012. If he's back beyond that, remains to be seen.

Phillips (aka @datdudebp) tweeted this before the Reds' home finale: "DAMN... Got a lot on my mind! Can't believe that today "MIGHT" be the last time I may be wearing a @Reds jersey playing at #GABP #NoBueno"

Reds general manager Walt Jocketty said there is no chance of that being the case.

"He'll be with us," Jocketty said. "We've had some talks with his agent (about an extension)."

Even if the Reds are unable to reach an agreement on an extension, the Reds will pick up Phillips' $12 million option for 2012.
