The Reds have gone an impressive 19-7 since the All-Star break and even won 10 in a row at one point, but they were swept by the Brewers and have lost four in a row. All the winning must have made some fans lose perspective on how difficult it is to win consistently, leading second baseman Brandon Phillips to vent over Twitter:

#RealTalk… It’s funny when you’re #WINNING and the #RICHARD riders comes out! But when u start LOSING, they’re quick to hop off #DamnShame

— Brandon Phillips (@DatDudeBP) August 8, 2012

OK, so Phillips obviously doesn’t like the bandwagon fans. But don’t insult his intelligence by asking him a dumb question like “Does losing bother you?” That’s when you risk getting a salty response:

Are u serious? That’s like me asking you does having a small #RICHARD bother u RT @mize161: @datdudebp #RealTalk does losing bother u?

— Brandon Phillips (@DatDudeBP) August 8, 2012

Phillips has glowed about what Twitter has done for his playing career, but I’m not so sure he would say the same thing now. And what’s the deal with his “Richard” obsession? A little much, no?
