I'd just like to point out at the beginning of this conversation that Jared Hughes is generally lauded as being a solid guy and a good human being, and that Brandon Phillips' character issues and penchant for ugliness and agitation are well-documented.

This is not going to end well.

Hughes, who I hate as a baseball player and I think needs to stop walking around like he just broke out of a sex offender ward and worry about his pitching, told Phillips to f-ing do something something in the dugout, you motherf-er.

So go on, Phillips, what exactly did you hear that was so racist?

And looking up his numbers, it must be anecdotal. I swear every time I'm watching live and Hughes comes in, he blows the game. Maybe I should turn the TV off when he comes in.

He was very effective earlier in the year. Not so much lately.

I actually really like Hughes's act, the big 6'7" huffing and puffing. I loved hitting Phillips there. His ERA is 2.57 with a 1.13 WHIP (2.03, 0.90 in the last 4 weeks).

It seemed pretty clear what he is saying on the replay. I'm pretty surprised that things have gotten so bad around here that we are taking Phillips side on this.

I don't think Ape was taking Phillips' side, BD. He was just noting that he's not a Jared Hughes fan from a baseball perspective.

Exactly. In spite of my belief that Hughes blows games and acts like a drunken flamingo, I didn't see anything racist about a bunch of f this motherf-ers. People of all races have f-ed things like a motherf-er.

And I was surprised to see his numbers were so good. Maybe it's one of those things where the bad stands out and it's all that I notice in the end. The Jon Scott corollary.

Some of it is letting inherited runners score, like last night. Those don't count against him. He has 16 shutdowns and 8 meltdowns this year in high leverage situations, opponents are hitting .164 against him in high leverage situations.

You should get partial credit depending on what base they were on. Let a guy on third score, .25 runs buddy!

Phillips tweeted that he and Hughes spoke today and all is cool. -

"Phillips said he and Jared Hughes spoke today and work things out. "We had a great conversation," he said."

Except that he wears the number 4, so technically, you'd need to hit him *on* the number. ;)

That would require some finesse. One would have to bounce the ball off the ground in such a way that it jumps up underneath Phillips. I'd pay to see that.

Back to the original topic: Even though Phillips and Hughes have kissed and made up, apparently people (if you consider Reds fans evolved enough to be people) are still harassing Hughes about it, to the point where he had to issue another statement to the press today. This bogus racism accusation is probably going to dog Jared Hughes his whole career now, and all because Brandon Phillips shot his mouth off on Twitter. Way to go, Phillips; first your gumflapping ended Jason LaRue's career (with an assist by that other class act, Johnny Cueto), and now it's torpedoed another guy's reputation. All this, and he's such a p---y that he refused to play in the last 2 games of the August series. What did we expect, I guess; he plays for the organization that gave us Pete Rose and Marge Schott, so that says all you need to know about what class they have.
