First pitch to the lead off hitter goes in his earhole unless warnings are issued before the game, which is a strong possibility.
Best thing that could've happened to the Bucs as long as Cutch is fine. Absolutely stupid move by the Reds...should've let the sleeping dog lie...

I really hope the umps let what should happen happen. If they give warnings before the game then they let the Reds get away with that chickenshit move.

It's possible that the Reds did it to 'get into the Pirates head' and 'get them off their game'. Retaliating might accomplish just that---making it more about some dumb personal rivalry than about winning ballgames.

Just beat their brains out tomorrow.

I'm sorry, but you're just wrong. Somebody has to go down for that one, or you might as well fold up your tent and forfeit the rest of your games.


I think I tend to agree with NSMaster. Beat them the next two. That would be the best way to show them!

Also, does anybody want to give any defense to Chapman? Is he not allowed to pitch inside to a tough hitter? THoughts?

It's part of the game and I get really pissed when the umps start that pre-warning and quick tossing stuff. I think it has gotten a little better the last couple of years but there were a few seasons where the batters were coming to the plated roid raging, wearing suit of armor and crowding the plate and the pitchers ignored the inside part of the plate because the umps wanted to toss the pitchers for throwing inside.

Just beat their brains out tomorrow.

Gotta drill someone early on. If they give pre game warnings that is bullshit and JMac should drill someone close to his exit from the game.

If it was an accident, he should of gestured some form of an apology or concern for Cutch.

Yeah. You have a point there.

Yeah I really hope the umpiring crew gets together tonight or tomorrow and talks it over and does the right thing. Just let some Reds scrub come up and take his drilling and have it be over with. Otherwise, they tacitly approve of what that chickenshit did.

What was the point to throwing at Cutch? I'm just confused.

Btw, why the fuck are the umps on charge of deciding the game played between hundreds of millions of dollars of talent all 60+ years old? For the play at the plate that old bastard positioned himself in the only place he couldn't see the play at all.

When I was in Elmira, we had a similar situation. Our manager knew the umps were going to issue warnings before the game, so he sent our Japanese pitcher who knew no English out with the lineup card...funniest thing I ever seen...

The kicker was when the ump called for the interpreter and he pulled a "Sammy Sosa I speak no english in front of congress" act..the ump was pissed...then threw our starting pitcher and manager out of the game when the first two pitches went behind the batter...

I get the joke, even got a laugh out of it, but in all seriousness, this kid can sure speak English well.
