    Pirates fans are livid

    They're convinced that Chapmen hit McCutchen intentionally and they believe there should (will?) be retribution tomorrow.

    Biggest game of the year and the Reds would intentionally want to put runners on in the 9th inning? Riiiight.

    Seems reality has escaped Pittsburgh for far too long.

    Well, they've been waiting for a long time to have stuff like this happen in games that actually matter. So I'll let them have their fun.

    I'm glad he hit McCutcheon. Not because I want him hurt, but because it strikes fear in the other Pirate hitters having to think they could get plunked by a 100 mph fastball. An occasional wild pitch without runners on base can do wonders in terms of fear.

    Pirates are babies, just like the Cardinals.

    Sounds like Pittsburgh fans are weird wusses.

    I've no doubt it was a purpose pitch. I am sure Chapman was trying to push him off the plate. But I don't believe for a second it was meant to hit him.

    They're going off about it on both the MLB board and the Pittsburgh Sports forums.

    I think if the Pirates hit Votto in the 9th inning with 2 outs and a three run lead that there would be many posters on Redszone saying the pitch was intentional. I can't really blame Pirates fans for being mad.

    Champan seems pretty nasty.I don't think he cares one bit what any of those guys think about him(player or fans)and if he didn't do it on purpose tonight he might do it tomorrow just for being accused.

    You can't blame fans for assuming, without a shred of evidence, that someone was intentionally throwing a 102 MPH baseball at someone on purpose?

    McCutcheon looked absolutely furious. He looked like he thought Chapman did it on purpose.

    I doubt we would be up in arms. In fact, I don't really recall any of these types of incidents with the Reds outside of the Cardinals brawl. I can't recall any recent Reds charging the mound or staring down a pitcher after a HBP.

    I guess its a rivalry, then, again.

    Cool. I have hated the Pirates for my entire life. Hated them in the 70s with a passion. Hated them through the 80s and into the early 90s. I find it easy to access the old hate. Feels good.

    Maybe "Cutch" should worry about backing up the LFer rather than complaining about getting hit.
