Reds fans and Albert Pujols boo the Cardinals during All-Star Game introductions

CINCINNATI - Who says rivalries don't exist at the All-Star Game?

During introductions before Tuesday night's All-Star Game, the Reds fans in attendance at Great American Ballpark booed Yadier Molina and the rest of the Cardinals on the National League roster.

The Reds-Cardinals rivalry may not be as heated as the Cubs-Cardinals feud, but the Cincy fans certainly didn't hold back their displeasure of the Redbirds.

Even Albert Pujols got into the act:

 

 

When Pujols was announced as part of the American League starting lineup, Reds fans booed him, too, and he laughed and pointed to the "Angels" scrawled across his chest, reminding the fans he's no longer on the enemy Cardinals.

Pretty great troll job by all involved.

Reds pitcher Amir Garrett apparently held a grudge against Javy Baez for a year

Reds pitcher Amir Garrett apparently held a grudge against Javy Baez for a year

Baseball players don't forget grudges. Javy Baez and Reds pitcher Amir Garrett gave an example of that on Saturday.

Garrett struck out Baez in the seventh inning of the first game of the Cubs-Reds doubleheader. Garrett showed some excitement with the strikeout and then said something to Baez. They both started jawing at each other and suddenly the benches cleared.

At first glance, it looked like Garrett was a bit too excited to get a strikeout with no one on base. Turns out Baez had his own bit of swag for Garrett last year (Friday was the one-year anniversary) in the form of a grand slam at Wrigley Field.

This time Garrett got Baez and wanted to even things up a bit.

Things didn't get too feisty despite the benches clearing, but Anthony Rizzo did rush to Baez's side at some speed. This could be a matchup to keep an eye out for in the future.
