COLUMBUS, OH- The last time Bats' starter Chad Rogers faced the Columbus Clippers, he allowed six runs. This time, a seemingly different Chad Rogers toed the rubber and shut down the Clippers in a 2-1 win for the Louisville Bats.

The whole Brandon Phillips thing

I didn’t hear about this until some 18 hours after it happened. When I did, I took a tour of the Reds blogs to see what reaction was. There was a whole lot of “everyone already knows about this” and “there’s nothing to say that hasn’t already been said.” I, as you may have noticed, have been busy with a life outside of baseball lately, though, and was actually looking...

National writer claims Brandon Phillips isn't only Reds player to rip reporter for criticism
