Brandon Phillips’ latest media firestorm – he’s good for about one a year – drove home one point: The Reds may have some flaws, but team unity is not one of them.
Phillips tends to say things that his teammates would never say or even think. The remark about the St. Louis Cardinals being “whiney little (blanks)” comes to mind.
But when Phillips and Yadier Molina got into a spat over the remarks, the rest of the team had Phillips’ back in a big way.
All for one, one for all.
Next time you see a clip of that fight, watch what happens when Chris Carpenter shouts something at Dusty Baker. Usually mild-mannered Scott Rolen goes all WWE on Carpenter.
Carpenter was a friend of Rolen’s. But it’s team first.
Phillips’ remarks to Cincinnati Magazine about his contract hammered the team thing home again. The essence of what Phillips said was he was upset that Joey Votto got his contract before Phillips.
(I thought the comments were self-centered and misdirected. Owner Bob Castellini cer...

I believe it's fair to say that Reds broadcaster Thom Brennaman has annoyed listeners and viewers from time to time. But one national writer was so annoyed by Brennaman during Saturday's telecast against the Pirates that he decided to write an entire piece dedicated to it.
CBS Sports writer Matt Snyder published this article on Monday which basically rips Brennaman, and...

I ought to be talking about how Ryan Braun will sit out the rest of the season. Heck, I haven’t even mentioned the thing about Brandon Phillips complaining that the team misled him about his last contract yet. But I am just too eager to see what last night’s line-score will look like in this...
Cincinnati Reds third base coach Mark Berry is back in his familiar spot for the first time all season after undergoing treatment for throat cancer.
Berry made his 2013 debut coaching third in the opener of a four-game series at San Francisco on Monday night.

Poor Brandon Phillips and his $72.5 million contract.
Last year, the Reds’ star second baseman signed a new six-year, $72.5 million deal to stay in Cincinnati. He didn’t say anything at the time, but apparently it wasn’t enough.
In a recent interview with Cincinnati Magazine, Phillips sounded off about how he feels about his contract, saying that he was irked about his deal...
Homer Bailey has been very hittable since his no-hitter for the Cincinnati Reds.
Jeff Locke seemingly has no physical problems to worry about as he brings baseball's best road ERA into this series finale.
Bailey will pitch at home for the first time since his no-hitter as the Reds seek to complete a three-game sweep of the Pirates on Sunday.
Bailey (5-8, 3.82 ERA) has posted...
The Cincinnati Reds have spent nearly the entire season without outfielder Ryan Ludwick. The slugger was placed on the disabled list after dislocating his shoulder on Opening Day, but he's closing in on a return. Ludwick will take the next step in his recovery on Wednesday when he begins a minor league rehab assignment with Cincinnati's Single-A affiliate, according to Mark...
CINCINNATI Clint Hurdle managed Sunday like it was a Game 7, or at least like a manager who was going to do anything to avoid a fourth straight loss, utilizing five members of his top-rated bullpen over the final three innings Sunday against the Reds. Dusty Baker approached things like a manager whose team is in the midst of 17 games in 17 days, including an upcoming 11-game, 10...

Cozart finished 4 for 4 with two RBIs and three runs to back Tony Cingrani (4-1). The...

Tim Lincecum got shelled, Bronson Arroyo was brilliant, and the Reds scored in each of the first seven innings on their way to route the Giants 11-0 in the first game of the series.
It didn’t take long for the Reds to end Lincecum’s bid for another no-hitter, as Shin-Soo Choo led off the game with a double, and Derrick Robinson followed it up with a single. Lincecum struck out...
A Cincinnati Reds fan sported a wild 'do and team colors while attending the game against the Pittsburgh Pirates at the Great American Ball Park on Sunday.
The Jesse Ventura lookalike with the red Mohawk even had white shoulder hair and 'stache to complete the whole Reds color scheme.
