Cincinnati Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips has gained a reputation for getting underneath the skin of opposing players. He's not afraid to express his emotions on the baseball field and, as a result, he's had more than a few opposing players come after him, both verbally and physically. But, this is just ridiculous. According to a tweet that Phillips sent out last night, he was the victim of a racist remark made by a Pittsburgh Pirates player during a Pirates/Reds game last night.
So, who actually made the comment? Well, Phillips has (so far) refused to say. But, he did reportedly bring it up to an MLB official, so we don't expect this to be the end of it. Stay tuned.
