UPDATE: Brandon Phillips’ comments about the Dominican Republic’s celebration not quite as critical as first reported

Mar 15, 2013, 5:02 PM EDT

UPDATE: Ken Rosenthal says that the comments of Phillips and others, such as they were, were not digs on the D.R. players as such. Go read his whole column here for a far more thorough handling of the comments Kernan tweeted about earlier.

5: 02 PM: I suppose it now, as they say, on:

Well, that’s the point, innit? You lost, Phillips. They beat you in a game that they feel was very important. And when you win you get to celebrate. When you lose the game you lost, you gotta play a loser-go-home game against Puerto Rico.  But sure, if you win it and get another crack at the D.R., by all means, “Show Out.” In that case you will have earned it. Like they did last night.
