    Carpenter concludes: “It’s not what baseball is, not what baseball is about.”
    Hmm...perhaps if he hadn't started mouthing off to Dusty when everything looked to be calm then things wouldn't have escalated like the did. Idiot.

    Yes, Carpenter still playing the family card, Phillips still running his mouth and loving every minute of it.

    Problem?

    Phillips isn't playing holier-than-thou.

    Eh, I don't see how Carp's attitude is any better or worse than Phillips'... It's two different sides of the same coin.

    They are only giving Carp crap because he won't let it go. So as long as he keeps whining about it then people will continue to talk about it and view him as a whiner. Just like they do alot of the Cardinals namely their manager. If it was a reporter that brought it up all Carp had to say "Thats in the past and we are focused on moving forward" and he would have been done with it, but he chose to keep whining.

    As for Phillips, I think if BP could take back the comments he made last year he would, but he can't. Since then his tweets have been good natured ribbing. What do you want the guy to say? He's having fun with it and if the Cards can't take it in stride, then that's a them problem not a bp problem.

    What makes you think we can't take it in stride? I think the Cards fans are having fun with it, just like he is. He's fun to hate.

    As far as Carp goes, I'm pretty sure if he pitched for the Reds, you'd all love him just as much as you hate him now. Maybe not, but I think he'd just a guy you love to have on the team and hate to have on another team.

    I think the guy Cards fans really take issue with is Cueto. Yeah, Cueto was pinned up against the net (I'm sure he was just afraid, after all of the injuries he'd suffered during the brawl). Yeah, LaRue was probably only a few years from retirement anyway as a 36 year old catcher who was clearly beyond his prime. After all, he was behind the plate for ~6500 innings as a Red. That's tough on the knees.

    Cueto still kicked him... in the head. As far as I know, he's never apologized or made a single sympathetic noise about the situation. I don't know if Cueto meant to hurt anybody... I think it was just a heat-of-the-moment thing. However, I think he should still be expected to make some kind of statement about it. I firmly believe that if Wainwright, Carpenter, or anybody else on the Cardinals had really injured someone, intentionally or not, we'd be expecting them to at least make a statement. ESPECIALLY if it was someone like Rolen, Edmonds, or any other former Cardinal.

    Reds fans seem to see Phillips is an angel and Carp as the devil. Course, in St. Louis, we see Carp as a classy guy and Phillips as one of the most arrogant players in all of baseball. All a matter of perspective.

    Who do Reds fans hate more, Carpenter or Yadi?

    I have heard he has scars from the fight, but really who walks around without clothes on in front of their children?

    Reds fans have been critical of Phillips from day one. Personally he is my favorite player and in my eyes can do no wrong, but many Reds fans don't feel this way.

    Good to know. In St. Louis, so far it's been Phillips, but if Cueto ever pitches here (the feeling here is that he's too afraid to), he will get the Phillips treatment as well.
