That Brandon Phillips?
I believe you are confused if you think how he acted was just getting "mad" and "something everyone does." Everyone gets mad at times. Repeatedly calling someone a fat _______ in public is not an average response to anger. Is that how you behave when you get "mad?" He is a representative of the organization. He represented it very poorly yesterday.
Now, I think this can and should be handled internally and, provided this type of stuff does not start becoming a repeated issue, I would only be in favor of a trade if it makes the team better on the field.
