Re: BP on Votto's contract and hard feelings over his...
I think he could've been more gracious about Votto and I think matters like this with ownership should be handled privately. I don't think Phillips said anything crazy. The larger problem is that what he said is provocative. Fans and media and even ownership and teammates probably all have differing opinions about it and included in that will be many negative ones. I think the teammate one matters most. If the teammates don't care, then I think all is well. If he quickly becomes viewed as a cancer and is toxic to the team, then that is very very bad.
