Who's the Bitch Now?

By: J. Owen

In case you didn’t hear,

“I’d play against these guys with one leg. We have to beat these guys. I hate the Cardinals. All they do is bitch and moan about everything, all of them, they’re little bitches, all of ‘em. I really hate the Cardinals. Compared to the Cardinals, I love the Chicago Cubs. Let me make this clear: I hate the Cardinals.”

That is what Brandon Phillips said prior to starting game 2 with the second place, or eh, first place Cardinals. Boy is he in for a big meal.

Let’s continue with the Phillips topic. He might want to seriously consider playing on one leg because he couldn’t hit our pitching on two legs. He went 2 for 14. Brandon I can understand why you hate us, and I loved the Cubs reverence. As if his opinion of the Cubs matters, I am glad to know that at least he is a complete loser.

As for the rest of the Reds team, they were beaten in every statistical category. So when Phillips stepped up to bat, Yadi asked him to apologize for the harsh words, or something like that, and Phillips decided to smack talk a little more. Honestly, I am surprised Phillips didn’t get attacked by his own teammates at this point, but the benches did clear. That’s when the Reds really displayed their class. The starting pitcher for the Reds, Cueto, leaned back against the backstop and starting kicking and screaming. That’s when he continually kicked La Rue in the body and then head. At this point, I do not understand how Johnny Cueto was allowed to throw another pitch. Seven game suspension is not enough. His actions where completely irresponsible and immature. He is a thug and needs to make a statement quickly apologizing for his outrageous behavior. This is the MLB, not the MMA. You would think the Reds would show a little more respect for the Cardinals, after all, three people in the Reds organization have a 2006 World Series Ring, Edmonds, Rolen and Jocketty and Migeul Cairo also used to sport the birds on the bat. Not to mention we have owned them for the last decade.

This is the kind of thing that could send a ball club into an awful downward spiral. I would love to see Dusty’s Reds crumble beneath him. We showed the Reds up in their own hometown. As usual, the Cards fans in town made their presence noticed, and they had plenty to cheer for.

Phillips steps up, Yadi calls him out, then after a small altercation, Phillips weakly grounds out to second. Yadi steps up to bat and hits a homerun. Now that is having your cake and eating it too. I wonder how Brandon was feeling as Yadi was rounding second with his fist in the air. Or how he felt when the opposing second basemen Skip Schumaker hit a grand slam the previous game. As if Phillips didn’t feel bad enough after losing the first two games, Colby silenced the entire city with his grand slam in game 3. We put our best three starters on the mound in the series, as did the Reds. This was a clean sweep, no doubt about it.

Now we get to play the Cubs this weekend. That is what I like to call good clean fun. So that first weekend in September when the Reds come here, I wouldn’t be surprised if Brandon Phillips get a fat standing ovation when he comes up to bat, and then takes a fat seat on the bench.
