I have been given a lot of flack on this board for my criticism for Brandon Phillips as a person. In fact, I know at least one thread that has been closed because of the flaming that resulted. To be clear, it's not so much that I think he's an awful being as I think he is too heralded for the kind of human he is. (How I'd like to word it is that being great with fans with does not necessarily equate to being a great person.)
With all that said, I think it's ridiculous to suggest BP is 'butt hurt'. However, I will say amen to the idea of not giving MLB Network any free publicity.
