Just exactly why was there a need to brush back McCutchon when there's two outs in the ninth, leading by 3 runs? There wasn't.
I was addressing the charge that it was "too close to the head".
Sounds like you are a "never brush the other guy back" type of guy. And if so, just say so and I will accept that.
It really wasn't that close to the head, and if there is a good time for a brushback, when would that be?
