    Re: Cardinal Quotes on the Reds

    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.

    Then what happens when they go all Graig Nettles on him and he ends up like Bill Lee and walks off the field with his pitching arm waving around like a piece of chicken tender?

    From Wikipedia, which is never wrong.

    During a brawl in a game against the Boston Red Sox in 1976, Nettles, who was on second base at the onset of the brawl, tackled Boston pitcher Bill Lee from behind. When it appeared that the dust had settled and the brawl was over, Lee confronted Nettles for tackling him from behind. The fracas resumed when Nettles swung at Lee. More players joined in the fray and Nettles broke Lee's collarbone when they went down in the pile. He was arguably never the same pitcher he was before the incident, though he continued to be a thorn in the Yankees' side for a few more years with Boston. However, the Yankees continued to win the division during this time and the incident added to the storied Yankees - Red Sox rivalry.

    Thats why you put Gomes at 1b and Votto out in LF. Get as much muscle as close as you can.

    Im sure everyone is expecting something to happen when the next time these two teams meet. Let the Cards start it *stares a hole through Phillips* this time then we can finish it.

    I witnessed that game on channel 38. Un...freaking...believable...Mickey Rivers goes running around like a cowardly mosquito hitting people in the back of their heads. Nettles takes Lee down from behind, places a foot on his back, and begins yanking/twisting his left/pitching arm.

    Carlton Fisk receives a scratch during the scrap and someone asks if Gene Micheal had hit him with his purse. LOL! I love their rivalary! It is like baseball meets world wrestlings.

    So Marichal lost it for a bit there...he had the greatest kick and delivery of all-time. If you never witnessed the guy pitch, you missed a true master...and the Dodger-Giant rivalry has fun and intense.

    I heard from a very good source that Carpenter said a certain word that begins with the letter "f" and then the word "you" to Baker.

    Molina received a huge standing ovation before his first at bat last night.

    I'm happy for him. Maybe they can erect a statue of him too.

    Re: Cardinal Quotes on the Reds

    Yea, I'm not sure what that's supposed to mean to us. Brandon got huge ovations the entire series. Most Reds fans agree with what Brandon said, even if they wish he hadn't said it.

    We know Phillips will be outrageously booed next time we go to St. Louis.. here's an interesting question though: What type of ovation will Scott Rolen get? Will he be cheered again as he was the first couple times we've been there, or will Cardinal fans perceive that he was a part of the fight and let him have it as well?
