There is a rivalry from the brawl and both teams being competitive right now but it seems like reds consider the cardinals their #1 hated rival when there are probably 5 teams that I consider the cardinals to have bigger rivalries with. Those teams being chicago, KC, NYM, Astros (though that one is over), LAD.
1. Phillips is one of the most popular players in MLB. His twitter posts and fan interactions have made him a media darling.
2. I've been to many Reds games at Busch Stadium. I saw more booing and obscenities yelled at those games than I did at Cubs games at Busch stadium. I was actually embarrassed for Cardinal fans of old, who I always considered the best fans in the game.
