    Sep 20, 2012, 8:53 AM EST

    Dusty Baker

    Dusty Baker went to the hospital before yesterday’s Cubs-Reds game, thinking he may have had pneumonia or something. Turned out to be something else: an irregular heartbeat.  Baker was hospitalized overnight and will have precautionary tests. After the game Brandon Phillips had this to say about Baker’s absence: “I had to worry about my daddy,” Phillips said.…

    Brandon Phillips, Chase Utley

    Patrick Mooney of CSNChicago.com spoke with Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips about the NL Gold Glove award.  Which Phillips has won for two straight seasons and for three of the past four.  Mr. Phillips, Mooney asks, what say you about Darwin Barney‘s errorless streak? Does he pose a threat to you? “Honestly, I don’t even…

  8. Brandon Phillips is a punk because he didn’t charge the mound to fight Jared Hughes? What?

    Sep 14, 2012, 11:05 AM EST

    Brandon Phillips

    The he-said, he-said of the Brandon Phillips-Jared Hughes thing died out a day after it all went down. Probably for the best, given that (a) neither Phillips nor Hughes was willing to say they were wrong; and (b) no one’s interests would be served by having it strung out any longer. But in today’s Post-Gazette…

  9. Jared Hughes issues statement to address Brandon Phillips’ racism allegations

    Sep 12, 2012, 12:30 PM EST

    Detroit Tigers v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Jared Hughes and Brandon Phillips have already squashed whatever beef they had, but Phillips alleging that Hughes made racist comments during Monday night’s game continues to be a story. Hughes addressed the allegations by issuing the following statement today: In response to Brandon Phillips’ TV interview yesterday prior to the game, I feel compelled to…

    Sep 12, 2012, 8:23 AM EST

    The ugly comment threads that developed following the Brandon Phillips-Jared Hughes posts yesterday were made ugly when a number of people decided — based on nothing other than their own preconceptions and prejudices, it seemed — that no, there’s no way Jared Hughes could have said something racist to Brandon Phillips. That it must be…

    NBC Sports Network

    Tonight’s Caught Looking, airing at 9 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network, goes behind the scenes at last weekend’s Red-Cardinals series. Spoiler alert! The Cards took two of three.

  14. Player Poll: A-Rod is the phoniest player in the game

    Aug 22, 2012, 3:30 PM EST

    Alex Rodriguez

    Sports Illustrated continues to trickle out the results of player polling they did. We’ve had the most overrated, the most underrated, the meanest, the most eccentric and the most popular. Now, the phoniest: like you needed to tell me it was gonna be A-Rod? Rodriguez finished first with 26% of the vote, followed by Nick Swisher…

  15. Matt Harvey is dominant. Frank Francisco is drunk?

    Aug 16, 2012, 11:03 PM EST

    Matt Harvey

    The Mets are playing out the string at this point, but at least they’re keeping things interesting. Matt Harvey limited the Reds to one run in 7 2/3 innings and struck out eight in the Mets’ 8-4 win on Thursday. He also had a two-run double off Homer Bailey in the contest. Frank Francisco put…

  16. Alfonso Soriano says Starlin Castro needs to “concentrate more on the game”

    Starlin Castro AP

    Starlin Castro wasn’t the only member of the Cubs who made mistakes in yesterday’s loss to the Reds at Wrigley Field. In fact, the Cubs committed five errors for the first time since 2006. But the 22-year-old was the focus after the game. Castro, who has a history of mental lapses, committed a fielding error…

    The Cubs snapped their eight-game losing streak by beating the Reds on Thursday, but they returned to typical form Friday, committing five errors in a 10-8 loss to Cincinnati. Anthony Rizzo, Starlin Castro, Josh Vitters, Brett Jackson and Welington Castillo all had miscues on a very windy day at Wrigley Field. The Cubs had five…

    From Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette comes word that Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips is out of the starting lineup again for Sunday’s series-finale against the Pirates. Wilson Valdez will get the nod in his place, batting seventh against Bucs right-hander A.J. Burnett. Phillips hasn’t started a game this month due to a left…

    reds win getty

    There’s apparently no stoppin’ the mighty Redlegs. Backed by Todd Frazier‘s timely hitting and another outstanding performance by the National League’s top bullpen, Cincinnati rolled to its fifth consecutive victory Saturday night at Great American Ball Park. Joey Votto has been sidelined since July 15 due to knee surgery and Brandon Phillips hasn’t started a…

    Pittsburgh Pirates v Chicago Cubs

    Pirates 5, Cubs 0: A rejuvenated A.J. Burnett came into a Wrigley Field with the wind blowing in from center against a Cubs team hours off of a significant selloff and tossed a one-hitter. Oh, and Neil Walker drove in all five Pirates runs. Rays 8, Athletics 0: James Shields pitched a very relieved “oh…

    Brandon Phillips came back and played Monday after leaving Sunday’s game with a cramp in his left calf, but it appears he made the injury a whole lot worse tonight. MLB.com’s Mark Sheldon has the quotes from the Reds second baseman: The calf is no bueno right now. I tried to play [Monday] because the…

    Jul 6, 2012, 6:56 PM EST

    Dan Uggla

    There’s been a lot of hostility directed Tony La Russa’s way for all of the NL All-Star snubs this week. Really, though, it’s the fans as a whole that made things more difficult than they needed to be by voting Dan Uggla, Rafael Furcal and Pablo Sandoval into the starting lineup. The Braves tonight dropped…

    Tony La Russa, the honorary manager of this year’s National League All-Star team, got to hand-select only nine of the players for his roster. And he had to be sure that every organization was represented. He went with left-hander Wade Miley (as the Diamondbacks’ only rep), outfielder Giancarlo Stanton (as the Marlins’ only rep), Huston…
