    Reds and Cards benches cleared when Phillips stepped in the box

    Baker and La Russa ejected.

    Molina provoked it by talking trash when Phillips stepped in the box. Molina should have been ejected IMO.

    Carpenter and Rolen would have fought if it hadn't been for folks breaking it up. Carpenter is lucky he didn't get popped in the head as he was pushed up against the wall.

    Ok, why was Baker and LaRussa ejected, but Molina (and to a lesser extent Phillips, Carpenter, and Rolen) were allowed to stay in?

    Makes no sense. Molina should have been gone for sure.

    Yea, those Cardinals are a classy bunch.

    Win and lose the right way, ehh Tony Doubleday?

    Screw that team and everything to do with 'em.

    Cueto was getting crushed against the wall/net and was kicking Carpenter in the back at one point, cleats and all. All kinds of chaos erupted man! Jason LaRue was the one that get it started up again, talking trash to Dusty.

    My guesses: Molina, Carpenter suspended (Carp will miss one start)
    Rolen, Rhodes, Phillips, Cueto suspended (Cueto will miss one)

    Phillips and Molina the most.

    Yadier Molina = Thug.

    I hate the Cardinals. Hate them. Always have, always will.

    I'd take Rhodes off that list I watched it a couple of times in slow mo and didn't notice him doing anything other than trying to break it up. But I'd add LaRue to the list he was jawing at Dusty and got it going again after the initial staredown by teams. That sparked Carpenter to join the fray & then others to go after him or try to move him away and shut him up which resulted in a bunch of people getting after it.

    Gotcha. Just going by watching it once and listening to Welsh.

    via Jamie Ramsey's Twitter: It appeared this began when Brandon attempted his at-bat ritual of touching the ump and the catcher with his bat. Molina kicked his bat.

    Did anyone see Molina mock Phillips' home run trot as he rounded the bases? Will someone please drill him?

    I wonder if any of this would've happened if Phillips would've stayed classy?

    Just wondering....

    Yeah, the Cardinals did nothing wrong. I guess it's OK for Felipe Lopez and Colby Rasmus to run their mouth but Phillips can't.

    No, but you could say the same thing about the Cards too, right?

    Was that really my argument?

    I hate the whole trash talking BS. Play good baseball. There is NO good guy in this embarrassing sideshow. The country is watching..... this is a major defeat in the "classy war".
