    I think if BP is tweeting femininas during the game that is an issue for discussion.

    I like him. I think he could still play up to his contract (though I don't see an upside for the Reds at this point). But I'm sorry, that behavior isn't acceptable to me.

    Tweeting while at work is unacceptable behavior? I applaud you if you've never done something similar at work. I'm guessing most here have done so. I just hope that you haven't, otherwise, I see that as a consistency issue.

    The self-righteous huffing and puffing from fans goes overboard sometimes. This feels like another case of it.

    It's unreasonable to expect that the starters for your team wouldn't be texting/tweeting during an actual game they're playing in!?!?

    It's not behavior I'd encourage, but it's no different than writing your phone number on a ball or note and sending it or your room key to a hot fan, which has been going on forever.

    Aren't you the same guy who made a stink because someone compared the contracts of lay-folk like us and major leaguers? But apparently this workplace issue is apples and apples?

    I don't mind people saying it's not a big deal to them. But I don't see comparable to a cubicle monkey doing it.

    And since I never tweeted, I have no consistency issue.

    So if I'm clear, are there some of you who if managing the Reds, don't tell BP to knock off the tweeting during games?

    Most people work 40 hours a week, BP "works" about 18 hours a week. Not to mention how much money he is being paid in comparison to the average Joe who works 40 hours a week. If he can't refrain from tweeting during those 18 hours, he needs to go.

    I'd be happy if he just quit tweeting while running the bases.

    Apparently he's cheating on the game of baseball.

    I'd tell him if he can get there 35% of the time, he can tweet from first base.

    But have you ever made a phone call at work? Browsed the internet? Done anything that wasn't 100% having to do with your job? Same difference, really.

    And yes, I made a big deal because there's a big difference as to whether someone can be legally fired because of what Phillips said at an at-will job and whether a contractor or employee subject to a strict, labor agreement can be terminated for such a thing. Unlike that situation, there's really no difference with a baseball player sneaking a peak at their Twitter account between innings and an employee sneaking one on their job. Unless it's impacting their work performance, it's not a big deal.
