I’m not suggesting the Cardinals don’t have some responsibility in Tuesday’s brawl, but Johnny Cueto should be the only guy suspended. His Bruce Lee spikes up attack was gutless and dangerous. From what I could see nobody else threw a punch. So as heated as it was, everyone except Cueto kept their wits about them .
Kudos to Yadier Molina for taking exception to Phillips’ tap of his shin guard. If the guy hates the Cardinals as much as he professes why does he act like it’s all good? You can’t call the team a bunch of whiners and “little bitches” and then act like you’re buddies. All I can conclude is that Phillips is both a big mouth and a phony. Had Phillips not acted the way he did, there may not have been a brawl at all.
Kudos to the Cards for finishing off the Reds. We’ll see if Dusty Baker’s team has any guts by the way it responds.
