>In the Cardinals-Reds series at the beginning of August, Brandon Phillips had some rather inflammatory remarks for the St. Louis ballclub… calling them “little b*tches.”  The Cardinals took exception to Phillips’ remarks and proceeded to sweep the Reds to reclaim first place in the division – and then went 4-13 to fall 8 games back in the standings.  Over Labor Day weekend, the Cardinals hosted the Reds for the first time since Phillips’ remarks, and for the last time this season.  Cardinal fans let the Reds 2B know that they don’t have a short memory.

Phillips received a standing ovation after his first inning strikeout, and was booed for the rest of the game.  However, the most interesting part – one of his foul balls was thrown back onto the field.  As you would expect, a person is ejected from the stadium after throwing something onto the field, and that was the case in this instance as well.  That should be the end of the story…. should be.  However, the person that was ejected, according to a tweet over the weekend, was none other than a grandson of Cardinal great Stan Musial.  Oops…
