Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips on the St. Louis Cardinals
before Monday's game: "I'd play against these guys on one leg. We have to beat these guys. All they do is bitch and moan about everything, all of them. They're little bitches, all of them. I really hate the Cardinals. Compared to the Cardinals, I love the Chicago Cubs. Let me make this clear: I hate the Cardinals." The Cardinals then beat the Reds, 7-3. Phillips went 0 for 5. Karma? Perhaps. Either way, at least this saga led to this great "headline."
