Pretty much what he said.
All spring I've watched just about every televised Mets spring training game, and the games where Piazza has played first (or a split squad game) I've seen Phillips catch. I saw Vance Wilson come in once to catch in the middle of the game.
Phillips will be an everyday player just about as much as anyone else, and will probably play at least 140 games (if he catches a lot and Piazza is playing first), or as much as 150 (if he's at first most of the time). It mostly depends on what happens with Piazza. If he gets catcher home run mark early in the season and is capable at first, he will play a lot over there and Phillips will mostly catch, where he will need more days off. On the other hand, if Piazza isn't so great at first and the Mets decide to keep him behind the plate most of the time, Phillips will see most of his time at first, which is less strenuous, and he will need less time off.
