Found May 26, 2013 on Next Impulse Sports:
Following the Cubs and Reds game on Sunday, Matt Garza had some choice words for Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto. The words were directed at Cueto for his part in allegedly throwing at Cubs’ center fielder David DeJesus on purpose. Cueto threw a fastball right over DeJesus’ head in the sixth inning, and as you can tell from the video and Garza’s words, it was not appreciated. According to the Chicago Tribune: “It’s kind of b.s. on his part, just totally immature,” Garza said. “If he has something to say about it, he knows where to find my locker and definitely I’ll find his. I took total disrespect out of that one.” “Cueto should learn, you don’t go after guys’ heads,” Garza said. “Don’t wake a sleeping dog. I think that’s kind of immature on his part and totally uncalled for. He’s lucky retaliation isn’t in our vocabulary here.” Garza said DeJesus “plays the game the right way” and didn’t deserve the purpose pitch. “If Cueto has any problem...

Matt Garza to Johnny Cueto: ‘Grow the hell up’

The Reds held a comfortable 4-0 lead over the Cubs on Sunday when Cincinnati starter Johnny Cueto threw a pitch over David DeJesus’ head. Since Matt Garza had hit Todd Frazier with a pitch two innings earlier, both benches were warned by the home plate umpire. The Cubs eventually won the game in extra innings. [...]

Steel Cage Deathmatch: Garza vs. Cueto!

The Cubs happened to win today’s game, despite a short outing by Matt Garza, and snap a long losing skid.  There was a small incident within the game that should’ve remained insignificant but didn’t for whatever reason.  In the sixth inning, Johnny Cueto, who was cruising along to that point, threw a pitch over David DeJesus‘ head.  Cueto had been agitated since the beginning...

Brandon Phillips playing to Joe Morgan's level?

CINCINNATI There is no debate, not even room for a whisper of a discussion, that Joe Morgan is the best second baseman ever to slip into a Cincinnati Reds baseball uniform. And maybe he might be the best to pull on a major league uniform.He was that good. Better than good. He was that great as the best all-around player on The Big Red Machine.Ever so quietly, though as quiet as...

Is it worth it for teams to pursue Alfonso Soriano?

When Alfonso Soriano signed his 8 year, $136 million deal with the Cubs, even the Cubs expected Soriano not to be at his best in the last couple seasons of the contract. Maybe the Cubs expected to be a little more competitive in the first couple years of the deal. Soriano still has another season at $18 million in his deal with the Cubs. With the Cubs not going anywhere, shouldn’t...

Reds defensive work not to be taken for granted

CINCINNATI Ive never been one for extravagant statistics. I will leave that to people much smarter than I, but I do know you can quantify anything if you try hard enough and you can make stats pretty much say what you want them to say in order to fit your premise. My premise isnt a wild one. The Reds play really good defense. Day-in, day-out. Not just the spectacular, highlight...

Reds OF Ryan Ludwick out until at least mid-August

Ryan Ludwick of the Cincinnati Reds knew he would miss half of the season after he dislocated his shoulder on Opening Day, but now it looks as though he will be lucky to play much more than a month of the 2013 season.  According to C. Trent Rosencrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer, Ludwick's recovery timeframe puts his return in mid-August at the earliest. Ludwick emphatically...

Cubs’ Kyuji Fujikawa leaves Sunday’s game after seeing trainer

Chicago Cubs’ reliever Kyuji Fujikawa left his team’s May 26 game against the Cincinnati Reds in the ninth inning after a visit from the team trainer. While the reason is uncertain at this time, MLB.com’s Cubs beat writer Carrie Muskat tweeted that Fujikawa believes that the problem is similar to the strained right forearm that put him on the disabled list on April 13...

Choo excited to see old teammates, play against them

CINCINNATI A procession of six Asian media people paraded through the Cincinnati Reds clubhouse, headed for Shin-Soo Choos locker and Brandon Phillips shouted, Look, a Choo-Choo train. There goes the Choo-Choo train.Choo is, indeed, a cult hero in his native South Korea and hardly a day goes by that he isnt standing in front of his locker conducting interviews in Korean.And he is...

Brandon Phillips no longer angry with Indians

In April 2006, the Reds made a trade with the Indians that proved to be one of the best the franchise has ever made. Cincinnati acquired a player by the name of Brandon Phillips, a sparingly used second basemen, from Cleveland in exchange for a player to be named later. The trade was eventually completed when the Reds sent RHP Jeff Stevens the other way in June. The rest is history...

The Memorial Day that Belonged to Joey Votto and the Reds

I’ve been to what seems like hundreds of baseball games. After being at today’s Indians-Reds game, I’ll never forget the Memorial Day game-winning home run that I saw a future Hall of Famer hit with my wife and our two friends (unfortunate for them, they are Indians fans). Take a look at the home run and the context of it so you can gain a full appreciation of how incredible...

The Games That Were: Cubs vs. Reds

Ivy is out and about, so I’m going to help out with this series recap.  Hopefully this won’t suck.  The Reds, as of today, are 7th in the majors in scoring at 4.82 runs per game and 4th in the majors at preventing runs, limiting their opponents to 3.58 runs per game.  It’s not surprising that they are once again challenging the Cardinals for the National League Central lead...

Late drama highlights Reds' 4-2 over Tribe

The Reds have won six of their last seven and 13 of their last 16, while Cleveland has dropped six of its last seven games. The Indians chose to pitch to Joey Votto in the eighth inning with one out and Zack Cozart on third and the game tied 2-2. Manager Terry...

Reds, Indians both fine for intrastate series

Outfielder Shin-Soo Choo walked through the Reds clubhouse with five reporters following, shooting a segment on his quick success in Cincinnati. ''Oh!'' second baseman Brandon Phillips yelled. ''It's the Choo-Choo train!'' Funny, and fitting. The leadoff hitter has been the engine driving Cincinnati's early success on offense. And he gets...

Votto leads Reds past Indians

Joey Votto hit a tiebreaking home run in the eighth inning, lifting the Cincinnati Reds over the Cleveland Indians 4-2 Monday in the opener of their intrastate matchup. Votto won this interleague game with his ninth homer, tagging left-hander Nick Hagadone (0-1). The reliever was called up from Triple-A earlier in the day when closer Chris Perez was put on the disabled list with...

Cubs 5, Reds 4(10)

Alfonso Soriano hit a tying two-run homer in the eighth inning and Welington Castillo had a go-ahead double in the 10th, helping the Chicago Cubs rally from a four-run deficit in a 5-4 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday that stopped a season-high, six-game losing streak.
