He had an uneasy, if not volatile relationship with manager Bobby Valentine, and when Phillips decided to fire Valentine before the 2003 season, many expected the GM to be next. He was often criticized for holding on to aging, brittle veterans too long, and was fired in a season marred by numerous injuries.
