    I think most will agree that pitch had a purpose. And it is the type of purpose pitch that is sort of acceptable (below the waist, but some will still hate any purpose pitch). But the punk Gomez invites it with his arrogance/immaturity. Time to grow up or keep getting drilled. The decision is his. Yesterday's game shows me he has not grown up, but has gotten worse. I hope his tweets show that he "might" get it. Probably b/c someone in the Brewers organization told him to stop with the BS.

    Carlos Gomez made the decision easy for him.

    I think Gomez would marry himself if it was physically possible. Dude is really in love with himself.

    I root for him to fail every time I see him, just so he's humbled a little bit.

    I know he's talented, but what a narssistic ego-maniac.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Nope.....that was at least the 2nd plunking. These two have bad air back to 2010.

    Next time McCann should do a somersault at the end of the game. That'll show that dastardly villain.

    I personally love Mccann's reaction. Act like that you deserve to have someone come at you. The only issue I have is that the umpiring crew didn't toss Mccann.

    Agreed, and this isn't his first offense. I like McCann as a player a lot, but he needs to get suspended for repeatedly inflaming these situations. Somehow he keeps getting off with fines.

    Why is it acceptable to drill someone because you don't like what they did? What are we, 4 year olds who can't control our emotions and just get mad and start wailing people because we don't like what is happening?

    Because it has been a part of baseball long before you were born. Players know this. However, some are stupid enough to act the horse's rear-end and get that treatment. You act like a 4-yr-old and you get drilled. You act like an adult and you do not get drilled. Tough concept, isn't it? This will be the way it is long after you and I call it a day. And I for one like it this way. Act the fool and you pay the piper. I look forward to the first Atl-Milw game next year. I'll bet the fool (aka Gomez) will be a bit edgy lol.

    A lot of things were ways before I was born and were changed because they were bad ideas.

    It is flat out stupid that violence is acceptable because you didn't like the way someone acted in a manner that wasn't violent at all towards someone else to begin with. Flat. Out. Stupid.

    Re: Carlos Gomez strikes again

    If Molina did that, there would be 12 threads calling for him to be suspended.

    The braves clearly have a preachy streak and if it comes to it, Phillips needs to tap McCann's shin guards cuz the Braves have a glaring assumed moral authority that a smart team can offend and exploit. But I wonder ow BM will explain that to his sons?

    McCann has a lot of respect across baseball. He acted like a good teammate should act.

    He'd go down as the greatest shortstop- I mean catcher- of all time if he did that.

    Freddie Freeman started jawing at Gomez. Yes, Gomez watched his HR -- so what? Freeman decided he didn't like it and started the argument. Gomez responded, and McCann turned it into a confrontation. Childishness all around.

No one standing up to them and saying "hey, take it on down the road buddy." Good job McCann! Look at the contriteness of Gomez after he was stood up to. There is the truth.
    Oh please, you're comparing a bunch of professional athletes who have never been bullied once in their lives to real victims of bullying? What a pathetic joke this is. Next you're going to tell us how we should feel sorry for the on Wall Street who crashed the economy because they get trashed in the media once in a while. /violin
