Brandon Phillips is still hurting

I read this tidbit on Brandon Phillips' ESPN fantasy baseball player page today:

Phillips admitted Monday that he was "really hurting" in June, but said he's "getting closer to 100 percent," the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Spin:
Back on June 1, a pitch from Pirates left-hander Tony Watson plunked Phillips on the forearm, and Phillips proceeded to bat .193 with two extra-base hits (both homers) over the remainder of the month. He said he's feeling better after his recent two-game absence while on the paternity list, which is certainly good news for both the Reds and fantasy owners alike.

Phillips may have been hit intentionally by Watson. Last season, Aroldis Chapman probably had bad intentions when he threw towards Cutch's head with a three run lead. I can't prove the intent of any of these players, but we know there is some bad blood between these two teams right now. Regarding Phillips, I feel like I have an angel and a devil on my shoulders. The angel is saying "It's never right to intentionally injure someone." The devil, who is wearing a Pirates' jersey, is saying "Fuck Brandon Phillips. Fuck Aroldis Chapman. Fuck Dusty Baker. Fuck the Reds. Just win, baby."
