As an Astros fan, I’ve never been real crazy about the Reds. My dad, being from a town just 30 miles west of St. Louis, always instilled in me to like the Cards, ironically, so the hatred isn’t as much in the Redbirds as it is in Cincy (though I don’t call myself someone who really likes the Cardinals). Irrelevant as all of that may be, it leads me into the topic that seems to be making the rounds today and that is what happened during yesterday’s little 7-minute free-for-all. Brandon Phillips, apparently, felt the need to give Yadier Molina a little tap on the shins and that is what escalated the whole situation. The big problem I have with this revolves around one guy: Johnny Cueto. After watching the video, I honestly don’t know what the hell to think. What a punk first and foremost. I don’t understand what made him feel like he needed to kick Chris Carpenter and Jason LaRue in the face/back, but that is exactly what he did. I was thoroughly happy to see the Cardinals complete the sweep today on the Reds. Karma is a bitch, John.
