Granted, Phillips probably shouldn't have said it, but Molina triggered the brawl, Phillips just triggered motivation.
never once has a cardinal come out and said anything along the line of what Phillips said. If someone calls your team a Beotch and says they hate you in the papers are you going to just sit back and take it??
