Brandon Phillips left this afternoon’s game against the Cubs with a possible back injury when he tweaked his lower back on a swing in the first inning. He stayed in the game and hit a single that same at bat, but he was out of the game by the third inning.

No updates on him yet — the game is still going on — but bad lower backs are murder. They just linger forever, even if they don’t knock you out of action for an extended period.

    Votto’s contract’s fault.

    That’s funny, I’d have figured Votto would have the injury considering he’s been carrying Phillips’ career on his back.

    Wow it’s so awesome to see the first two comments making fun of an injury.

    I root for Phillips. I hope he comes back 100%.

    I don’t laugh at player injuries, even if it’s a player I don’t care for, because I have class and basic human decency.

      But he’s a dick though.

        Be that as it may, and everyone is entitled to their opinion, rejoicing in and/or laughing at a player injury is bad karma and poor form.. Kind of a dick move, really.

        So? Two wrongs may not make a right, but they at least wash.

        So if you’re a dick to a dick you’re still even.

        Also….people are making fun of HIM. Not his injury.

    Well NOW who is going to drive in all the runs?
