Cincinnati Reds’ Brandon Phillips rips into reporter

Brandon Phillips

C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer was the target of short tirade from Cincinnati Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips Wednesday night.

Phillips shouted obscenities at Rosecrans after the reporter commented on his sagging on-base percentage.

Per Yahoo! Sports:
Phillips let loose at Rosecrans in the clubhouse, then interrupted manager Dusty Baker’s pregame media session to make a few more comments.

The Gold Glove winner stuck his head into the doorway of Baker’s office and singled out Rosecrans, saying, ”I’ve found out your Twitter name now, dude.”

Phillips sarcastically encouraged Baker to ”Make them happy, Dusty” and threw in some expletives for the reporter who’s ”worried about my on-base percentage.”

”That ain’t my deal,” Baker said, adding the dispute was between Phillips and Rosecrans.
