WTF Cueto gets 7 games , he will start every fifth game so this means he will miss one game. I believe he should have to miss 7 games that he was going to start.

why did they fined molina and carp, they didnt do anything wrong. phillips and cueto should be the ones suspended not any of the cards cause phillips started the fight adn cueto injured a couple of players. i think that tony la russa shouldnt be suspended because he didnt do anything wrong. i agree with baker being suspended cause he said something to carp n carp was just trying to get him cause baker said something to him and plus i dont like him so he should be fired.

These so-called professional athletes need to face criminal charges for what happened. If they were in public anywhere and this happened they would have ALL been arrested. The punishments are not enough but that is just my opinion.

I'm sick of these a**holes who make all this money and seem to think they get to act however they want. We, as a race of HUMAN BEINGS, need to stop condoning bad behavior and stupidity and stop cheering on idiocy as is sometimes displayed in the sports arena and reality shows.

Queto should never play baseball again and should be brought up on criminal charges. Baker should have been thrown out of baseball long ago when his grandson ran onto the field from the dugout, if not before just for a bad attitude. Carp, Yadi and LaRussa, WTF they didn't do anything wrong. Phillips needs to grow up and keep his big mouth shut. And to Scottie-Who was that you said would win three games?

Cueto should be fired. Tony, Molina, and Carp did nothing wrong! Phillips should be suspended or fired too. I did not see why they are pinning the cardinals too in this.

the pitcher Cueto could have really hurt or blinded someone with his kicking. He will only miss one pitching rotation and that is not severe enough.

Poor role models from both sides. Do not consider this acceptable behavior for what is suppose to be a Professional group!

Why wasn't the scum who started the whole thing suspened or fined. After all if he wouldn't have made those stupid comments the brawl would not have happened. I watch the cardinals almost every game and they do not start things like that unless provoked.

The Cincinnati Reds are 100% responsible for the tirade that occured at the game in Cincinnati on Tuesday. The MAIN TROUBLE MAKER was Brandon Phillips with his rude and arragant remarks about the Cardinals. He is a disgrace to the MLB and the American
people. He should be suspended for the rest of the season, since none of this would have occured without his disgusting public remarks about the Cardinals. This gives the Cincinnati Reds a bad
reputation as a poor loser. No one on the Cardinal should have been reprimanded in any way for the occurance. The MLB should be
ashamed of themselves for their reaction.

There is always 1 brawl in baseball every year, this is nothing new, Can we just move on? there are more important things to be concerned over besides a bunch of guys who make too much money..

LaRue, Carp, and Tony should bring civil charges against Cueto. And Brandon should of been suspended for starting the whole thing in the first place.

If Phillips hadn't opened his big fat mouth none of this would have happened - but he had to open his racist face and show his stupidity and ignorance - he is the one that should be fired! What a great example to give to everyone about the 'red's - does that stand for 'communist", too? And, the manager of that team should be fired for allowing that POS to shout racist remarks to the Cardinals-wha'sa matta baby, jealous? Of course they are and they got their butts beat anyway! Poetic justice!

What a great example these overpaid ball players are given our children. Why were they not suspended and given a heavy fine along with going to anger management classes at their expense. Should a child do this in school they would be suspended and not allow to attend classes. Why should these players not get more as they as supsposed to be adults?

i think bringing criminal charges up is just ridiculous. ever watch hockey? let the game police itself in these matters. now, what francisco "k-rod" rodriguez did in new york, that's another story, but this is not criminal. the reds lost and that's justice served. let's keep it rolling over the cubs.

I believe that from whating this game,Brando Phillips should be the one fined and also have a suspenion for the rest of the season. After all Phillips was the one that said negative, bad things about the STL Cardinals. Then to come up to Molina and give him that friendly tap after what he said was uncalled for in everyway. GO MOLINA AND THE WHOLE STL CARDINALS TEAM.........
