In case you were wondering about the collective memory of the St. Louis Cardinals' vaunted Best Fans In Baseball—well, it was long enough to deliver this welcome-back to Brandon Phillips, even after the Cardinals' slide in the standings. Busch Stadium—instruments up, and boo—â†µ
That's bracing! The end result was truly Philadelphian in scope; Brandon Phillips was booed when he walked to the plate, when he made an out, when he called time, when he fielded a play, when watched a pitch for a ball. He would have been booed for tapping his own knees with his bat, at this point.
