    I believe it was intentional.. Of course Chapman is the only one that knows for sure.

    IF it was intentional, it was a stupid thing to do.

    I hope it was not intentional.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Re: Pirates fans are livid

    Chapman has battled periods of wildness in his Reds career.

    Dusty said on the pregame show they are trying to pitch Cutch inside.

    It wasn't intentional according to Dusty, and I believe him.

    Again with the insinuation that Chapman has pinpoint control. He does NOT. Tonight that fact was again on full display. Just because he looks good against the next batter does not mean he turns it on and off. He has pitches that pull Hanigan way out of his spot. Often. That just is.

    Also, will it make everyone feel better if we now call Jared Hughes a thug for his shove? Cuz that was by definition thug-ish.

    Chapman stopped going from the windup at one point un the game, so he was definitely uncomfortable with something.

    I agree, and the only reason I didn't mention it is because I didn't want to be the one to open up that can of worms. But you're absolutely right it was that kind of behavior.

    Re: Pirates fans are livid

    Ok, I've been silent on the matter long enough. there is no "o" in McCutchen's last name.

    It's a pretty rampant mistake on this board. If we're going to be the better, smarter, higher-road team, we should at least spell correctly

    I hate that he's showing so poorly and inciting hate with this series. He's traditionally anything but a thug in any sense of the word -- stand-up, even-tempered, a leader, all-around good guy. Never shown any predilection toward anger or violence whatsoever that I can remember. And a helluva ballplayer. He's young and he's bearing the brunt of the pressure on that team and he's never dealt with anything like this before, and he's not handling it well, which is a mistake a lot of young people make. I hope he doesn't have people turn against him forever.

    On the other hand, a lot of other guys in his situation might have been a lot more hot-headed. He did let it get to him on the field though.

    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Coincidence? I think not. Just kidding VP. It drives me nuts too.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    It's true. I can't play ball so I have to plunk the moniker transgressions.

    The Reds have had his number this year. But they also pointed out during the TV broadcast that he is in about a two week power slump. His reaction to getting hit by a pitch is simply misplaced, unfortunate, and childish. I will watch my spelling more carefully, but I will not call him that other name.

    So, this happened:

    Brandon Phillips ‏@DatDudeBP
    #RealTalk... Not really surprised by what I heard come outta another player's mouth tonite but DAMN... Still PISSED bout that $h+!! #Racism
    "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."

    That's gotta be from the Hughes incident. He was visibly upset on first base, and the pick off with Phillips literally standing on the bag was just bizarre.

    Not hard to figure out what happened here. I always thought Hughes looked like a raging (insert whatever bad word you want here), guess I was right.

    Exactly what Brantley was saying on the radio during the incident. Talked repeatedly about the massive chip on Hughes' shoulder that he's known around the league for.
