    Between Kimo and Hines Ward Pittsburgh has had more than its fair share of chreap shots. Perhaps McCutcheon will stop diving at the plate.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Forgive the Pirates and their fans. They just know how to act in a pennant race this late in the season. It's been 20 years since they have sniffed a winning record much less a playoff spot.

    That was maybe a knockdown pitch but not an intentional HBP. Its just effective wildness by Chapman.

    This player has singlehandedly carried this team. I asked the question why teams were pitching to him long ago on these boards, but I believe a pitch got away from Chapman. McCutcheon's reaction was immature and childish. Regardless, their fans will play it up for all it's worth,.. Such is sports fandom.

    The guy is having an incredible career season, and should have a nice career, but...

    Who is Andrew McCutchen? Is he too good to see a pitch not where he desires it to be? LaRussa attitude with no leg to stand on.

    Didn't McCutchon take Chapman deep last time they met?

    Why not hit him? Give him something to think about tomorrow.

    I agree.. Many Redszone fans would be in a tizzy for sure.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    As much as some of us may say "time to brush him back" or even "_____ needs to be plunked" it rarely happens.

    However, there may not have been a better time all season long to throw a purpose pitch than that AB.

    Just wanted to say how much I LOVE that Mantle quote. Pure gold.

    McNugget has never taken Chapman deep.

    Nope. McCutchen has a single and a strikeout in 2 career PA's against Chapman.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Re: Pirates fans are livid

    McCutcheon and the Pissburgh fans planned on them coming in here this weekend and making a major statement. Losing the first game of the series kind of limits them to making a minor comment or two. Got to vent their collective spleens somewhere.
