The players on both sides need to just shut up and worry about their own teams. We'll never know who said what and who started what. We do know that Brandon said something he shouldn't have said in the way he did. As a Reds fan I like Brandon's enthusiam, but loathe his attitude about doing these things. He won't even talk to some of the local writers because of what they have written about him. To me, Brandon needs to mature if he wants to be a leader like he claims.
In the end, I say let the Cardinals keep whining about fines and suspensions and we'll go ahead and concentrate on the rest of the season. If they decide to take revenge on Cueto in St. Louis, who cares? Let their players be suspended for it.
