"I want everybody to think that the Cincinnati Reds are, like, the cockiest team ever," Garrett said Tuesday. "We're some bat flippin', show boatin', son of guns, and I want everybody to know that."
The Reds were involved in a benches-clearing incident with the St. Louis Cardinals over the weekend, which resulted in outfielder Nick Castellanos receiving a two-game suspension for his role in the fracas.
Castellanos is appealing the ban, so he was able to play Monday and fired up Reds fans with a big home run and bat flip against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
The 29-year-old also skipped to first base after hitting a homer off Cardinals starter Jack Flaherty on Opening Day.
