Found June 27, 2012 on Holdout Sports:
Milwaukee Brewers right fielder Nyjer Morgan shoved a Cincinnati Reds fan and argued with him after losing a foul ball in the front row of the stands during Wednesday's game at Great American Ball Park.



It happened in the bottom of the ninth inning as Reds batter Devin Mesoraco hit the foul ball. Morgan reached into the front row with his glove, while the Reds fan in the front row reached straight up to catch the ball. As a result, Morgan knocked the ball out of the fan's bare hands as they were both trying to catch it.

Morgan felt he was interfered with and shoved the fan, but since the fan did not reach over into the field of play, he had as much right to the ball as Morgan did. Morgan had some words for the fan as he walked back to right field, and he could have gotten himself into more trouble if he didn't walk away right then.

We'll see if Morgan gets any punishment for shoving the fan. That was not cool.

Greinke could be traded if Brewers keep falling

Many scouts were on hand Wednesday in Cincinnati to watch Brewers right-hander Zack Greinke pitch, and understandably so.

He is a free agent after the season, and if the Brewers think they have no chance to keep him...

Votto triples 2nd place in All Star Voting

Joey Votto is clearly running away with the NL’s first base All Star position. So much so, that I think it’s easy to lose perspective.

The second-place vote getter has only 1.5 million votes for the entirety of the voting. Votto has about...

Love or hate him, Stubbs delivers for Reds

CINCINNATI If one Cincinnati Reds fan wants to start an argument with another Cincinnati Reds fan, all one need do is say two words: "Drew Stubbs."

Thumbs up or thumbs down...

Chapman celebrates with somersaults; Reds don’t approve
